Why Own a Mobile Food Business?
The mobile food business is forever growing and in demand with more consumers preferring to eat out and try new and exciting foods on the go. In a 2017 household spending survey by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, it shows the average Australian spends $80 a week dining out, up by nearly a third on the $63 spent in the 2009-10 financial year.
Social researcher Ashley Fell, from McCrindle Research, said many people in their 20s had delayed marriage and buying homes. This meant they had more disposable incomes to eat out. She also said the growth in food courts, cafes and restaurants in new shopping centres — all offering a vast smorgasbord of culturally diverse food — also contributed. Food delivery company Deliveroo said it had recorded 20 per cent month on month growth.
Having a mobile food business can enormously reap regards for the smart business owner who is after smaller set ups and, lower overheads and the potential for unlimited traffic in comparison to traditional brick and mortar food establishments that come with hefty shop fitting costs, skyrocketing leases and a very limited foot traffic count not to mention the fear of having another similar food establishment set up in the same street or suburb that’ll reduce your traffic even further.
Why is a Mobile Food Business so Profitable?
In a 2016 Food Truck Study conducted by Woolcott research for the City of Sydney, it was shown that mobile food business operators earned an average turnover of $255,000 per year across the board with a typical starting turnover of $142,000 in the first year of operation with income starting in almost the first few days of operation. These figures are excellent and not to mention very sustainable.
With minimal running costs coupled with the right niche business idea, the right support and creative marketing, you’ll certainly be making some very decent dollars from day one. Without the right setup, business idea or marketing, a typical mobile food business will certainly suffer and become very costly. The typical average cost of setting up a mobile food business i.e. truck, trailer, equipment, packaging and stock is over $140,000 and this is without any marketing or training. This is one of the most common factors that make mobile food operations seem very out of reach for many.
