How do I know if a mobile food vendor business is right for me?
Are you the type of person who cringes at the thought of sitting behind a desk all day? Do you daydream of being your own boss? Working with family? Being in control of your own destiny? Then perhaps a mobile food business is the ideal match for you.
When you run a mobile food concession, you put yourself in control of your day, your future, and your income. Forget about hourly jobs that only put money in someone else’s pocket and leave you scrimping to make ends meet. With a mobile food business of your own, you can quickly turn your dreams into reality.
What does it mean to be a mobile food vendor? When you own a mobile food concession trailer, you have the freedom to serve high-quality food without the expensive overhead of owning a restaurant. You can run a concession that travels to fairs, carnivals, flea markets and other venues. This way you’ll always have a new group of customers. Or you can opt for a free-standing semi-permanent outbuilding which remains in one well-chosen location. The customers know where to find you, love your food, and repeatedly come to you.
There are a few factors you should consider before deciding to run a food concession. Do you want to own a franchise with every step of the way detailed for you, or do you want to start from the ground up on your own? There are benefits to each, but if you’re a newcomer to concessions, you may want to consider a mobile food franchise. A franchise like ZooHoo’s Eatery offers strong training, local marketing assistance and all the systems you’ll need to run your business from day one. You step in and your business is already up and running. There are no costly mistakes because you’re working from a proven business model. You will have access to personalized help should you have questions or run into a snag. You’re in business for yourself, but you’re not all alone.
Ask lots of questions before deciding on a franchise. A good one will offer a fresh menu, low startup costs, and assistance every step of the way. They should help you find a location that will thrive and offer a business plan that has been highly successful. They should be accessible when you need them and have friendly staff members who welcome newcomers.
