A push cart business is an idea to consider if you want to set your own hours and venture out beyond the confines of a building while working. Before designing your cart, you need to think of a few ideas of what you’re going to sell, such as ice cream, sandwiches, or coffee among other items. Think about your customer base and some of the other foods that are offered in the community, trying not to offer the same types of foods and beverages so that customers will want to visit your cart over others.
A fun idea for food push carts is always ice cream. You can decorate the cart on the outside with almost any color and pattern that you could imagine. It doesn’t even have to relate to ice cream. Examples include a vintage design with an umbrella over the cart or a design that is appealing to children with bears and fun characters on the side. Another idea for a food cart business that many people don’t think about is hand-held pies. You would need a way to safely store pies that are made as well as the supplies needed to give them to customers. You could start with a few flavors to see how well customers like them before offering other flavors or combinations.
If you want to stick with more of a classic cart, then consider hamburgers and hot dogs. You could have a stand on the side of the cart with a variety of chips or other snacks. Offer a variety of toppings as well, but keep them in sealed containers that are kept cold for the safety of your customers. Tacos, breakfast items, and cupcakes are also ideas that you could consider based on what is served in your area and what you are good at making.
