The Future Trend Across America: Quick Service Vending of Food- Beverage-Merchandise

Mobile vending is taking the world by storm. In the busy world that we live in today, there is no mistaking the fact that quick service and modern convenience is replacing tradition.

 

Take for example- our holidays. Years ago it would be unheard of to think of a family “buying take out” for the Thanksgiving meal. However in the present time, many restaurants are filled and several homes are reheating prepared foods and placing them on decorative platters. Why is this? Frankly, we have scheduled so many things in our daily lives that there just is not the time to spend cooking, preparing and serving. This quick solution has spilled over into many other facets of life.

What does the future hold?

As we see grocery stores deliver, restaurants with curb side pickups and pharmacies selling food, it is hard to not notice the change taking place all around us. The question is- are you ready to maximize financially from this trend? Depending on the area, the following vending solutions could change your life drastically.

Increasing Sales with Mobile Vending

Over the years our business has seen tremendous growth in the mobile industry. With a unique business model in food- beverage-merchandise vending and portable buildings, AllaCart Manufacturing is considered to be a reputable and knowledgeable leader in the industry. We have experienced and embraced all of the technological advances from vending push carts in the 70’s, to designing and manufacturing state of the art portable trucks, carts and buildings today.

Through technology and the broad use of mobile and internet applications, the world has gained knowledge but lost time. With over-scheduled lives and the need to get things done quickly, our mobile vending industry has risen to the occasion, serving the public with “on the spot” products and meals.  Because of this, you may have noticed that one of the fastest growing industries in the world consists of mobile vending and portable relocation.

Time is one of the very few things that we are not afforded the opportunity to buy back. Therefore, even when time is inconsequential (such as vacations) it has been discovered that quick service meals and novelty vending carts have taken precedence over many traditional stores and restaurants. As an example, places like Walt Disney World have replaced many of their themed stores and sit down dining venues with multiple custom vending kiosks and carts placed throughout the park. This has been done solely to allow for quick service, as dictated by the increased demand of the public. Many resorts have adapted very successful dining plans based on this need for fast service.

AllaCart is the largest manufacturer of mobile vending solutions and portable buildings. We design and fabricate vending carts, kiosks, trailers, food trucks, modular buildings and drilling houses and various other systems that produce and/or sell food, beverage and merchandise.

Should You Start a Pizza Truck Business?

Step One: Self Evaluation
Look at your current financial situation and determine whether or not you can afford to start a new business. It takes approximately one year to establish and root a new company. Evaluating your financial records will help you to establish a budget to get started.

Step Two: Shop for Food Carts and Trucks
Identify the pizza truck that you would feel financially and physically comfortable in. Designing one from scratch or modifying an existing truck may be more affordable than you thought. If locating a food truck for sale is outside of your budget, consider a custom vending cart.

Step Three: Identify Township and State Regulations
Establish what town you plan on selling your pizza out of. Contact local and state authorities to find out what kind of restrictions, regulations and paperwork is associated with it. In some cases paperwork can take time to file and get approved, so this is a step that should not be skipped.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What kind of equipment do I need?
Discuss your plan with a qualified and reputable mobile vending manufacturer to establish a list of what you may need. Many of these trucks come with standard heating elements, counter sales, display features and hot and cold storage, but you want to be sure you have everything that you need before getting started. Do not skimp on features such as pantry space, electrical sources, and generator back up, as these are a large part of the business. Depending on the climate, discuss the environmental needs in your sales territory. For example if you live in a predominantly hot state, you may require additional shade and ventilation for your customers and employees.

Where can you buy a food truck equipped to sell pizza?
Selecting a mobile vending vehicle that is the right fit for you is essential. Referring back to the first step mentioned above, your established budget is large factor in determining what you can afford to buy. To discuss your need and wants with a qualified manufacturer, click on this link. You have the ability to specify exactly what it is you need and in return get a quote for what it will cost- with a simple push of the button.

Who can do graphics on the pizza truck?
In many cases, you can get the entire food truck equipped with graphic designs from a company that specializes in this type of industry. It is generally more affordable to get everything that you need all in the same place at the same time. Take time to break down the costs individually and then together in order to assess the most affordable option. Keep in mind that your business name and information on the trucks is considered free future advertising. Bold graphics and vinyl wraps are literally giant billboards seen by thousands a day.

What is a food commissary and do I need it to sell pizza?
A food commissary is licensed food establishment that provides services to a MFDV (mobile food dispensing vehicle). This commissary provides services such as the appropriate disposable of waste, storage of food and supplies, obtaining potable water sources and cooking preparations necessary for sale. The intent of this commissary is to provide support to operators in order to deliver food in a safe and sanitary manner.

Making Money with a Custom Vending Kiosk

Becoming Your Own Boss with a Custom Vending Kiosk in the U.S.

Custom Vending Kiosk

Between the demands of our personal and business lives, many people in the United States are short on time and looking to cut corners in any way possible. Because obligations generally can not be overlooked, modern shopping conveniences such as food sales at local pharmacies have been on the rise. In more recent years, the influx of sales via Custom Vending Kiosks have gone up drastically.

The truth is, we are all in need of modern conveniences and in some cases we will overpay for the luxury of time. Vending machines used to be the “go to” source for those in a hurry, however many Americans no longer carry cash and rely solely on debit cards for transactions. This fall of vending machines gave way to the increase in food kiosks for sale and generated a new age modern convenience in many cities across the US.

A custom vending kiosk has the ability to merchandise a much broader range of products and services including, but limited to:

  • Food
  • Beverage
  • Reading Materials
  • Health and Beauty
  • Literature and Map stations
  • First Aid and OTC Medications
  • Novelty Gifts

 

Because the economy has gone through significant changes since 2009, many patrons prefer to purchase one or two items at a modern convenience station versus waiting to do a large shopping order. The increase of sales through this type of vendor has increased by double compared to years in the past. This is a trending business model that seems to be gaining momentum in all types of cities and areas.

It is a terrific time to invest in the income generating convenience vending business  for financial reasons, but what about personal ones? For many Americans, the dream of  owning their own company and becoming their own boss is just a daydream, until now. The investment required to start up a custom vending kiosk versus a standard store is considerably less and comes with much less risk. To browse through a gallery of kiosks to get your new business started, click here.

Whether building from scratch or updating an custom vending kiosk, Allacart has the knowledge experience and reputation to design to your specification.

Options include:

  • Full installation of electrical system
  • Installation of generator and alternate power sources
  • Design and implementation of water supply systems
  • Cold compartments, refrigerator and freezer installation
  • Towing hook-up or mobility adaptation
  • Dispensing equipment
  • Displays and weather protected menu areas
  • Roof options including canopy tops or full enclosures
  • Graphic design and branding options
