Starting up your own mobile catering business is great – especially if you like the idea of being your own boss. But did you know there are several things you need to think about before starting out in mobile catering?
Excel Trailers have supplied and manufactured mobile catering trailers for more than 20 years and can help you to make your catering business a success.
Here’s what you need to think about before setting up your business:
What type of catering business?
There are many different options to choose from when it comes to mobile catering, including:
Fish and chips
Burgers and chips
The best way to determine what products to serve is to think about what you’re passionate about, how long it takes for you to cook and how much space you have to store produce. Knowing what you want will help you to decide on a suitable mobile catering trailer.
Where will you trade?
Whether your business serves street food or fine cuisine, you need to pitch up somewhere noticeable and easily accessible. Try looking at where customers will come from and where you will generate the most traffic.
Our mobile catering trailers are suitable for high streets, festivals, and weddings – making it easier for you to find one for your new venture.
Which catering trailer will you choose?
Here at Excel Trailers, we provide an extensive range of catering trailers to suit every event and occasion – providing a convenient solution for taking products to your target audience.
We make sure all our mobile catering trailers stand out from the crowd – effectively boosting sales and profit margins.
Our catering trailers include:
Showman Mobile Catering Trailer
The ‘Showman’ originates from the fairground. Unlike other mobile catering trailers, the Showman uses bright colours to capture attention, it’s perfect for the circus.
Our catering trailers are illuminated for special effect and can be built to order, so if you’re looking to make a statement, be sure to choose a Showman trailer.
Travel Chef Mobile Catering Trailer
One of the more economic trailers we have at Excel Trailers is the ‘Travel Chef’. It’s built to be strong and durable but is also lightweight which makes it easier to tow and manoeuvre.
The Travel Chef mobile catering trailers are the smallest trailers we manufacture and are best suited to laybys and industrial estates for workers to get breakfast or lunch on the go.
Professional Mobile Catering Trailer
As its name suggests, the catering trailer is designed with the needs of ‘professionals’ in mind. It withstands the rigours of heavy-duty catering, allowing you to attend some of the biggest events in the UK.
The Professional catering trailer can be used on and off the road – making it a must-have for events and shows.
Which catering equipment do you need?
Catering equipment from Excel Trailers will make it easier for you to serve your customers – saving the need to queue. We can also cook food before customers eyes, allowing them to enjoy the aromas whilst they wait.
We supply everything from Bain Maries, boilers and coffee machines to cold shelves, griddles, refrigerators and much more.
