Start A Coffee Cart

A coffee cart is a small outdoor structure that serves coffee and other beverages at retail prices. A coffee cart business is a low startup cost business.

All you need to set up a coffee cart business is a professional coffee machine and coffee cups.

To maximize your profits all year round, choose a strategic location and ensure you are readily available to serve your customers whenever they need coffee.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a coffee cart:

Case Study

My name is Beth Baxter and I co-founded Camper Cafe, a mobile coffee van business. The idea for our business started with my partner’s love for vintage VW campervans. He had a rusty old shell of a T25 Campervan given to him, that he wanted to convert into a trailer for his motorbikes.

Although we never really thought about this ever becoming more than just a lifestyle business, we found we were turning so much work away from that in 2019 when the company was turning over around £150k from working only 70 days of the year, we decided that I should go full-time to see the potential.
