The FTC website receives catering requests. Catering requests that do not identify a specific truck or business or cuisine will be distributed dependent upon the truck or business subscription level and the city/area in which your truck/business is enrolled. These requests are referred to as general catering requests in these terms.
It is FTC's intent to distribute general catering requests to paid FTC subscribers only using a system that FTC devices that is fair to to the entity requesting the truck service and the trucks. (Note: If the city in which you subscribe does not have paid subscriptions, then all subscribed trucks will receive general catering requests). These requests, in general, will go out to all the paid subscribers in a city at the same time. FTC may utilize an algorithm for distribution of these requests that limits the amount of trucks that the general catering request is distributed to. The intent of this algorithm is to prevent flooding the customer with food truck proposals for their event, and to limit the competition for each event. This algorithm is totally at the discretion of FTC.
The FTC website may receive catering requests that identify the type of cuisine that is preferred. These requests will be distributed to all the trucks in the applicable city that have identified that they support the particular cuisine type. These requests, in general, will go out to all these trucks at the same time. FTC may utilize an algorithm for distribution of these requests that limits the amount of trucks that this type of catering request is distributed to. The intent of this algorithm is to prevent flooding the customer with food truck proposals for their event, and to limit the competition for each event. This algorithm is totally at the discretion of FTC.
The FTC website will receive catering requests that specify a truck or business. These requests will be distributed to the specified truck or business only.
For trucks without a paid subscription, any catering request that comes through an FTC domain may be subject to a commission. FTC has no obligation to distribute any leads to trucks who do not have a paid subscription.
In some cities, the FTC services may be free until the amount of catering requests and the marketing value obtained by our website and services has significant monetary value in that city. When this occurs, the services may transition from a free service to a paid service. Like with any change of terms, FTC will provide at least 30 days notice of this change.
Accounts that are delinquent in their payments can be terminated from receiving further catering requests.
Our Subscription Services and Service Levels
Our services are used by subscription. There are currently only two levels of service: Standard and Free . These levels may change.
All subscriptions are on a monthly basis.
All of the subscription services will have a monthly fee with the exception of the Free service. These services may change. The subscription price at each service level is at the discretion of FTC, and is charged on a monthly basis with payment at the start of the service period for the month. If the price is increased, or the services are decreased, FTC will inform you at least 30 days prior to the change.
Your FTC subscription is applicable only to your selected city or area. Separate subscriptions are required for each city your business enrolls in.
Your FTC subscription is applicable only to one truck. Separate subscriptions are required for each truck that subscribes.
Conditions specific to each of the subscription levels are discussed in the paragraphs below:
The Free service has no fee. FTC is under no obligation to provide this service, and you are under no obligation to use it. FTC may enroll you in this service using public information about your business. Optionally, you may enroll your own business. The level of service under this subscription may change at any time. If you do not want your public business information exposed by FTC, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove your business from our services.
FTC may receive catering requests that specifically request your truck while you are under a Free subscription. FTC is under no obligation to inform of you of this request, but will attempt to do so using your available public contact information or contact information you have entered into your account. FTC may or may not charge you for this catering request information.
Under the Free service you may or may not have a password and administrative login to FTC. In cities where there are paid subscriptions, you will most likely not have an administrative login to our services.
The Standard service will have a monthly fee. Under this plan, general catering requests,cuisine catering requests, and requests that specifically identify your truck will be distributed by email to you and can be accessed by your administrative login to FTC.
Catering Request Distribution
Generic catering requests will be reviewed and distributed to the trucks by FTC. FTC will first evaluate the validity and commercial appeal of the request, and if considered valid and commercially viable, will move the lead to the FTC truck databases that qualify for the lead within one day of this evaluation.
FTC may use an algorithm or point system for distributing the leads. The algorithm is at the discretion of FTC and can change at any time. The factors in the point system may include: 1) the length of time a truck has been a paid subscriber with FTC, 2)the level at which the truck has been subscribed, 3)customer reviews of the truck's performance at events associated with FTC leads. 4)The amount, expected revenue, and timing of previous generic and cuisine catering requests distributed to your truck
FTC provides an option for food trucks and others to advertise on our website. The positions of the advertisements on the FTC website are based on the amount that is bid by the customer for the ad. Higher bids will receive better locations on our websites. A link from the ad to an Internet page of your choice is allowed and at your discretion. All FTC advertising plans are on a monthly subscription, and you may discontinue the subscription at any time. There will be no proration or refund for the current monthly period if you choose to terminate or modify your advertising services.
From time to time FTC will provide special discounted offers for our services. These special discounts are normally implemented through coupons when purchasing subscriptions or advertisements for our site. Unless otherwise stated, these special discounts apply only to the services provided by FTC at the time of purchase.If FTC adds new services after the purchase date, these may or may not apply to the services purchased under the discount program.
FTC may offer annual sales guarantees associated with its subscriptions. These offers will indicate that you will get "x" times your net payments to FTC in annual sales or you will get your money back. In these cases, the annual sales start from the date of your beginning a paid subscription to FTC, and the net payments are the total amount of payments made to FTC during the year from the start of your subscription minus any payments back to you from FTC including the sales guarantee pay back. For example, in a case where FTC is guaranteeing 3 times sales and you paid $600 to FTC for a year from the start of your subscription date but made only $1200 in sales, you will get $200 back from FTC (your sales would then equal 3 times your net payments to FTC).Similarly, if you made $900 in sales, you would get $300 back. If you made no sales, you would get your entire $600 back. In order to receive your sales guarantee pay back, you must request it via an email to email@example.com within 60 days of the end of your subscription year. You must be subscribed at least one year with FTC in order to receive a sales guarantee payback.
FTC Scheduling System Accounts
If you manage properties using the FTC Scheduling system, you will need an account. These accounts are specific to schedule management and are not related to a truck account. Unless otherwise indicated, all accounts are monthly and can be cancelled at any time. There is no proration or refund for the current subscription period if the account is cancelled.
Under some management accounts, the trucks may pay fees associated with booking spots at the site(s) managed by the accounts. In this case, the trucks will be charged monthly via their credit cards attached to their truck accounts. These charges are in addition to any fees associated with the FTC truck subscription. For managers of properties that charge the trucks to take spots using the FTC system, FTC will distribute the collected credit card charges to the managers on a monthly basis subject to a separately negotiated percentage of the total collected.
Modifying and Terminating our Services
You can stop using our Services or change service level at any time. If you are under paid subscription, there will be no proration or refund for the current subscription period if you choose to terminate or downgrade your services.
