Hosting is just the beginning. Someone then needs to design, create and maintain the website. While there are free services to help with some of that, it takes time and a bit of marketing expertise to make it look professional.
Maintain may not be much of a problem here. The only thing I think would change over time would be the menu. Maybe swap out a front page image.

Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!

You, sir, are living the life of Riley, whoever he was. Your kitchen-on-wheels can cook anything in the world, and Nova Scotia is my favourite place on Earth. I am drooling-jealous.

But you want menu-suggestions, for takeout, for Nova Scotia. Well of course deep-fry any fishy thing that comes your way, but everybody is doing that, where you are. The natives all have blue eyes and wear kilts, so have you tried deep-fried pizza? Deep-fried Mars Bars? Both very popular in Scotland right now.

And, given the environment you are in, I have a real suggestion for you. The Japanese invented it after WWII and called it Potato Korokke (korokke is Japanglish for croquette). There is no Scot who does not love Mince 'n Tatties (sloppy joe with mashed spuds), and Potato Korokke is exactly that, deep-fried. Park yourself in downtown Halifax at closing time with a banner proclaiming "Deep-Fried Mince 'n Tatties," and please remember me in your will.

Squarespace is great for small businesses. They sell domains for like $10 per year and for $10 per month will host the site. They have beautiful templates. It's really easy to build a nice website. Don't need to know HTML anymore.

I'd have both -- Facebook and a regular website. And of course reach out on all the social media apps/websites.
