Writing A Press Release For Your Food Truck

Include the right information

The most important thing to remember when writing a press release is to write it in a “news” style tone. Consult an AP or Chicago Style manual is you are not familiar with the standard conventions for abbreviations and punctuation. As stated above, a strong lead should give the reader a reason to want to keep reading, and the following copy should be factual evidence that supports the subject of your press release. Many times, newspapers will publish portions of your press release without revising or rewording anything as long as your copy is clear and free of errors. Write a press release that is newsworthy, relevant, and interesting, and you will be on your way to publication in no time.

Once your press release is complete, it’s time to start feeding it to the media. This can be done by yourself, but it may take you a little time to research the media outlets that would best fit your information. Local newspapers will be your best bet as they are typically willing to help spread the word about the mobile food industry in their local news or culinary lifestyle sections.
