Product Description
In this project students will work in a group to create a budget for a food truck to cater an event. Students will differentiate between fixed and variable expenses to create a budget for the event. Included in this file: template for students to use to create the budget, instructions/detailed scenario of the event, and a rubric to grade the project. The rubric is created for a 40-point assignment with the challenge of earning 5 extra credit points. Product files are created in Microsoft Word to allow for easy adaptation or differentiation to fit the needs of your classroom.

Daily Objectives:
◦ Differentiate between fixed and variable expenses.
◦ Create your own budget based on a real-life scenario.

In my Introduction to Business and Marketing I do a semester long project on food trucks. The project is designed to integrate key course concepts into business ownership. My students are placed in groups and work throughout the semester to create a business plan, marketing plan, financial plan, social media campaign, etc. for their food truck. The Catering an Event: Food Truck Budget project can be used in junction with the other assignments in my store or completed as a stand alone project.

Other sections of the project include:

Business Plan
Marketing Plan
Marketing Research Project
Social Media Campaign
Financial Plan
Business Pitches
