Instead of a food truck, a design truck, which is an augmentation to a brick and mortar office. Comes with two contractors, a white board, and solar panels... Flex to project needs?
Good idea if the truck still serves food
not bad. probably a better idea than having a drive thru built into a design boutique.
but who knows till u try?
where will you sleep?
no one is that desperate for design
it'd be a cool little vanity project for a firm - won't make money
logos in 5 minutes or your money back.
What problem are you solving?

The problem it solves is a firm's ability to scale resources and space for those resources according to the projects it gets, versus screwing up the cap rate on a building you are trying to grow into.
^ I think sublets, coworking spaces, and work from home are all doing a pretty good job at that already. And they don't have to worry about lack of toilets, parking space, electricity, etc.
I'm gonna say bad idea, or too small of a market.

not sure why though
make it a design yacht.
so you don't have to pay taxes for any income generated off the shore.
Fair point. Ok, idea tossed from brain.
So I have a busy day, get hungry but have little time for a sit down lunch, I head over to the food truck and grab something decent-ish on the go, back to my desk while I chow down and catch up on emails.
So I have a busy day, need some quick design work, little time for a sit down meeting with a proper firm, so I head over to the design truck and order a decent-ish logo and some business cards, head back to my desk and catch up on some mails and cry in my cubicle over what my life has become as I've just ordered design work from a food truck.
I think it might be kind of a not so good idea. If you did get a gig for a short time with a firm you are still going to have to park the truck somewhere. Depending on where they are located you might have to work in the parking lot or on the street, someone might want you to pay for that somewhere down the line.
Also people might be knocking on the window and asking you all the time "what do you serve?"
If you went client direct then I could see it being a bit better as you would be on site for them to see your progress or to ask you questions. The downside for you would be that you are on site and the client would be constantly checking your progress and asking you questions.
