Q & A - Can any food truck cool food?

A: Great question!

No, food trucks (mobile food units) may not cool potentially hazardous foods (TCS) unless they comply with one of the following conditions, regardless of their license class:

• The food is cooled in a licensed commissary;

• Commercial refrigeration equipment is provided on the unit; or

• Written cooling procedures are prepared by the operator and approved by the regulatory authority prior to conducting cooling on the unit.

This food truck has a great hot holding steam table. At the end of the day they will cool what is left in a designated commercial refrigerator.
