Being your own boss can be a very lucrative opportunity. But it is a risk and it is important to make sure you know what you are doing before you get started. One of the most popular types of business to open is a food and beverage business. If this is what you have chosen to do, you can open a storefront business or you can buy a mobile concession trailer or concession stand. There are several benefits to buying a mobile concession trailer.
The first major benefit to operating a concession trailer is that you have the freedom to move locations. Location can be one of the most important factors in the success of a restaurant. If you have the best food, but are in a bad location, you will fail. On the other hand, you can have average food and be in a great location and succeed. With a concession trailer or a concession stand, you can follow the crowd around. You can set up right outside of a sporting event, a state fair, or a parade. Or you can just set up outside the bars, and if the bars close then you can move to where the new ones open.
The second benefit to purchasing a concession trailer is the cost. In order to open a restaurant in a building, you will need a much larger start-up budget. It can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to build or purchase building space for a restaurant. On the other hand, concession trailers and concession stands can be purchased for a fraction of the price. Concession trailers with grills, deep fryers, and other concession equipment can be purchased for just a few thousand dollars.
Overall there are several reasons to purchase a concession trailer, from mobility to price; it is a good option to consider. Especially if you are new to the restaurant business, you can invest less and learn the ropes of the business before committing to a permanent space.
