If you are a foodie, you can feel the joy of eating out in the open air and also the joy of making food for others and getting appreciation. So, it’s a great idea to prepare and sell various tasty foods. And if you don’t have a lot of money to invest in buying your own kitchen trailer, you always have the option of renting one! But do you know what the most important thing to consider is?
You may think that it may be your budget or the kind of mobile kitchen trailer rental you should get or the time you’d have to devote for the work. But no! Yes, all these things are important, but the most important thing is the food you’ll be selling on your kitchen trailer!
Everything else will originate from your passion and skill of making food; so, be sure you get the “feeling of food” before making an emotional decision or starting a business.
1. Type of Food
The type of food you want to sell will decide the type of kitchen trailer you will need. The very first thing you can do is to study which types of kitchen trailers are used mostly for selling the type of food you want to deal in. This will help you narrow down the list of kitchen trailers to those you can manage well.
The type of food you want to deal in will also make it clear for you about what type of storage and refrigeration you’ll need. For example, if you will be selling frozen yogurts or ice creams, you will need a large amount of refrigeration capacity, but if you’ll be selling burgers, you will need a lot less refrigeration capacity.
2. Quantity of Actual Cooking
The amount of actual cooking you will need in the kitchen trailer is also an important point to consider. If you will grill hotdogs then and there, you may need additional grill space, but if you will sell sandwiches, will you actually need any grilling space at all? Instead you may need an additional food preparation space.
3. How the Food will be Served
Another important consideration is the method of serving. In case of serving burgers, you can just hand them over to customers in a roll and take money. But you can always add value or prove yourself different than others by offering something more such as a space to sit down and enjoy the food.
Plus the equipment you’ll need for preparing the particular food is also an important consideration.
Once you decide these food factors, everything else can be planned more easily. So, have you started planning?
