Starting a food truck business is great for getting creative and expressing your personality. You can see food trucks everywhere with clever and catchy-sounding names and truck designs.

So what is a good name idea for a Mexican food truck? Well, a good Mexican food truck name idea is one where you know straight away what type of food it is selling without looking at the menu.

Below is a list of 100 Mexican food truck name ideas along with a few tips on what actually makes an effective name.

Tips For Mexican Food Truck Names

Before we dive into the list of Mexican food truck names there are a few tips that help you to come with some of your own and other things you may want to consider.

Is it registered or trademarked?

Before naming your Mexican food truck you should check the name you are going for to see if it is not already registered as a food business or trademarked.

This can get you into all types of trouble down the line and can result in you having to rename your food truck business which can present all kinds of problems for branding and customer recognition.

You can check Companies House in the UK to check if the name is taken, or if you are in the US you can go to the United States Trademark and Patent Office (USTPO).

US citizens can also check with their local state office to see if a food business is registered with the name they want.

Add the food or country in the title

When coming up with a name for your Mexican food truck you want to either put the name of the food you intend to sell (tacos or burritos for example) or the nation the food is connected to (in this case Mexico).

This will let your customers know what specific type of food or national foods you are selling and remove any guesswork and barriers to a sale.

Keep it short and catchy

Do not use any more than three words when deciding on a Mexican food truck name. You want the name to be memorable as possible and roll off the tongue. It also helps if the words rhyme

Any more than three words can just sound a bit awkward and lead to confusion and customers mispronouncing your name or just forgetting it completely.

Use familiar words

Most people like familiarity and don’t like to second guess what it is you sell. It is good to be creative, but there is a fine balance to be struck.

Therefore try to use words people are familiar with and stay away from two words that have been smashed together to form a new unfamiliar word.

Use a simple formula

There is a very effective and simple formula you can use when coming up with a Mexican food truck name.

You add a name or place, plus the specific food or national foods you intend to sell and add the word Co. at the end.

Example Mexican food truck name:

Tuco’s (name) + Taco (food) + Co. = Tuco’s Taco Co.

California (place) + Burrito (food) + Co. = Californian Burrito Co.

This not only tells potential customers what you sell but also makes you sound professional by having the word “Co.” in the name.

Make a shortlist

From the list below of 100 Mexican food truck names, you can maybe add some more to the list and then shortlist 20 and then get it down to the top 10 that you are happy with.

You can then run this list by family and friends or do an online survey through Survey Monkey or Facebook to get some feedback at scale.
