How To Start A Ice Cream Cart Business?

Nov. 30, 2021

The expansion of car-free urban areas and public spaces is increasing as the rising trend of cities becomes more pedestrian and bicycle-friendly. Pavements and ample bike lanes are becoming the new normal for urban development.


This new trend is a turnaround for small business owners! Imagine a whole new form of pedestrian traffic. A very different form of pedestrian transport. A surge in foot traffic encourages people to stay in the city center and public park areas.


The average European buys around 9 kg of ice cream per year. In addition, the average American buys 22 pounds of ice cream per year. The ice cream industry produces over 870 million gallons of ice cream each year. The demand for ice cream is so high that it generates over $5 billion in revenue each year.

What types of ice cream?

Pre-packaged ice creams are the easiest type of ice cream to sell. They are also known as novelties. It reduces food handling problems and makes it easier to manage inventory. However, if you sell soft serve or scooped ice cream, you will have higher revenue potential. In addition, you can choose from other types of ice cream and ice cream products that you can sell. You can also make handmade ice cream sandwiches and give your customers a choice of biscuits and ice cream.


The Importance of Location

You have to look for a good place to set up for the day when your ice cream cart business has no permanent location. You have to consider the factors such as if other food trucks or carts are already competing for business and the prime hours for customers in that location. Office parks, shopping malls, sports venues, beaches, college campuses, festivals, and business districts are proven places for your business.
