Mr. Tahir Shah, Founder, Founder, Moti Roti, said, “We've had a beautiful journey in the UAE as one of the first Food Trucks that came up here, and the streak has really become a phenomenon. I think this opportunity is excellent for up and coming foodpreneurs to tap into their fullest potential. I hope my pitfalls and journey might be able to assist potential entrepreneurs and food truck managers to create a rewarding and profitable hospitality business.”
