25 Fun Street Food Business Ideas For 2021

Thinking of opening your first street food business?

You’ll first need to decide on what type of street food you will be specializing in.

There are plenty of different street food ideas you can turn into reality and we put together 25 fun business ideas you can start today.

Here they are:

1. Start a dessert boxes business ($1.8M/year)

Samantha Khater from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia started Dessert Boxes over 4 years ago, a dessert boxes business.

  • Revenue: $150,000/ month
  • Founders: 3
  • Employees: 20
  • Location: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Dessert Boxes.com.au was born out of our frustration of having to send and receive boring gifts which would end up being thrown away, dying, never used, and at best, re-gifted.

So, a week before Valentine's Day last year, we launched a Nutella themed Dessert Box! We collaborated with the biggest dessert makers in the industry, and within five days, we sold over 400 boxes! We searched for the best products on Instagram and did Google searches to find Nutella themed products.

This was our first ever Dessert Box:
