If I operate a food truck, do I need to set it up with a sink to wash cookware?

In my experience, even when food truck operators are scrounging for each square foot of space, their local municipal or state regulations require that they have a three-bay sink in their truck that allows for the sanitation of tools and wares as required throughout operation.

We find that three-bay under-bar sinks are the most popular option.  Here is a helpful, creative page on food truck sinks: http://www.feelfantastic.biz/sink-build.html.  

Please let us know if we may help you with any equipment for your truck!

It depends.  According to the California Retail Food Code, generally, mobile food facilities dealing with non-prepackaged foods must provide a ware washing sink with metal drainboards.  However, if the utensils and equipment of the mobile food facility are washed and sanitized daily at separate, approved commissary or food facility, and the mobile food facility has enough spare clean utensils to replace soiled utensils, then a ware washing sink may not be necessary so long as the mobile food truck is only serving 'non potentially hazardous foods' that only require a limited preparation, hot dogs (steamed/boiled), or certain tamales.
