2020 changed the way restaurants do their thing, and many are turning to food trucks versus brick-and-mortar establishments. With such unpredictability in being able to have customers in the restaurant, owners turned to food trucks for its more affordable option.
With the ability to travel anywhere, and draw crowds from different areas, food trucks are up and coming and not slowing down. With lower overhead and more versatility, restaurant owners are finding it easier to manage and grow. While larger areas are saturated with food trucks already, there are many untapped markets yet to go.
All businesses need accounting services and many owners don’t have the time or know-how to get it done. Because it’s such an important part of running a business, accountants can charge hefty fees and still stay plenty busy.

Cleaning services are in demand now more than ever. Regular cleaning services, such as cleaning homes or offices are always in demand, but now homeowners and business owners are hiring specialized cleaning services to disinfect their homes or businesses.

The buzz word for the year is ‘self-care.’ Everyone is into it and professionals diving into this profession are doing exceptionally well. Whether you’re a counselor, therapist, yoga instructor, or nutritionist, there is a need for your services.
If you can counsel, support, or show people how to be the best they can be, you’ll be in high demand. The need for self-care will never go anywhere, so once we are through the pandemic and all that it’s changed for us, there will still be a large demand for the services you offer.

2020 showed us that a lot can change, but businesses can still flourish. While many existing businesses have had to pivot how they do business to stay open, many have shown that they can flourish just as they are.
