Food Truck Generators


When you run a food truck business, you make people happy. When the food truck shows up at a construction work site, office building, microbrewery, or state fair, people flock to stand in line for their favorite, mouth-watering “comfort food”. We know you don’t want to disappoint your customers by having a power failure in the middle of making your famous food, and we have the food truck generators to keep that from happening. 

Whether you need a small battery and truck inverter generator to run your point of sales system, or a diesel generator to run a heavy load like an espresso machine, Colorado Standby has the food truck generators you need to keep your business up and running. With a full line of propane generators, gasoline generators, diesel generators, and portable generators, we can outfit you with a food truck power supply that’s right for you. 

 If you are just getting started in the food truck business, you might not be certain exactly what type of power supply you need. You don’t want to buy too little, and have your generator fail because it is overloaded and can’t keep up with the demand you place on it, but you don’t want to pay for more power than you really need, either. We can help you design the perfect food truck power supply for your food truck business, no matter how big or how small. Every food truck needs a properly sized generator. Commercial food truck generators are engineered to meet the needs of your portable restaurant, and the experts at Colorado Standby will help you determine the right size and location of your generator to achieve maximum efficiency. 

 When you have the correct food truck generator for your business, you can run your refrigeration system, freezer, air conditioning, exhaust system, lighting, cook oven, and drink machine with confidence. We will help you choose the generator that meets your needs and delivers the kind of safe, reliable power you can depend on. 

Colorado Standby will not only help design the perfect food truck power supply, we will install and service it for you as well. Our staff is well trained in the proper installation of food truck generators, and we have decades of experience behind us. We will handle the permitting process and ensure that you have a system that meets all current emissions and safety standards, and train you in its operation, so that you know your system is properly installed and safe to use before you ever flip the switch.

  • Natural Gas

  • Inverter and Inverter Charger

    Inverter, Battery Charger and Transfer Switch

    An inverter/charger is a combination of an inverter, battery charger and transfer switch into one complete system. When AC power is available, the inverter/charger recharges the food truck's batteries. It also allows any surplus AC power to pass through and power downstream AC loads, such as a food warmer, steamer, or microwave oven. When AC power is disconnected, the unit inverts DC battery power into AC electricity.

    Inverter/chargers are available in different sizes and power ranges to suit just about any application.
