Candy Food Truck Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


A great thing about franchising is that you can operate a brick and mortar location or have a mobile unit. A franchise that gives you both options is Candy Food Truck. Not only can you sell delicious candy, but you can also have a low cost investment to become your own boss and control your destiny. Customers can't get enough of the brand's 200 assortment of candy. As a franchise owner, you benefit from schedule flexibility, a proven model, support, and more. Since the brand doesn't charge a booking fee, and the franchisor helps you procure contacts with pools, nursing homes, churches, fairs, and more. Since there is no crossover in what the brand does, you'll be welcomed to set up with other food trucks. The brand has grown to 10 trucks and has made nearly 1 million transactions. The Candy Food Truck and Candy Safari concepts opened their first retail store in Tulsa, Okla., in 2017. The concept was created by Shane Emerson, who has been in the candy business since 1991. Emerson came up with the concept based on his belief that everyone wants to have fun and eat candy. 
Another standout of the franchise is its Giant $1 Dollar Candy Wall. The brand's top selling 100 candy items are bagged into small portions that are then sold for $1.00. Ideal candidates are passionate about customer service and have an entrepreneur spirit. Franchisees also benefit from Candy Food Truck's royalty free model. The franchisor does this because it is looking to grow and find quality franchise partners.
