Snacking Away

Snacking Away

For many people, a food truck or a food kiosk is an investment in the future. It’s a way to provide for the family while doing something that is enjoyable. If you enjoy preparing and serving food and interacting with customers, then there are several food kiosks options that you might want to consider. When you begin coming up with ideas for a kiosk, think about what is already prominent in your community and what you are good at preparing because your business should be one that is fun and exciting while profitable as well.

One idea is a pretzel kiosk where you serve a variety of pretzels ranging from those with and without salt to those that are sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. You might want to consider offering pretzel bites as well as larger pretzels that have toppings on them that you might enjoy as a meal, such as pepperoni and cheese. If you plan to set up your kiosk in a mall, then offer snack foods as many shoppers want items that are easy to carry while they are walking from one store to another without spending a lot of money on a full meal. Consider offering special items for holidays, such as Christmas or Halloween. You can also offer special promotions during the year when there are more people in the mall so that you can make more money.

If you don’t want to only serve snack foods, then you could try hamburgers, hot dogs, and pizza slices. These are foods that are also easy to carry around and can be quickly consumed, but they are a bit more filling than snack items. Candy is another kiosk food item that you can be successful with if you offer something that customers will want. Fudge, jelly beans, and small packages of candy are usually the items that sell the best in malls if that’s where you’re planning to set up your kiosk. Make sure you offer containers for any food items that you sell and maintain sanitary conditions.
