Buying a Mobile Catering Business for Sale

For newcomers to the catering and hospitality trade, a mobile catering business can provide an ideal entry point. As a rule, the required initial investment and subsequent overheads are much lower in a mobile business, which can provide the new business owner with greater flexibility and freedom to experiment.

A mobile catering unit can cost anywhere from £5,000 to £50,000, whereas the average asking price of a business with leasehold “bricks-and-mortar” catering premises is almost £80,000. The on-going costs are lower with a mobile business, too; because many mobile catering businesses are run on an ‘events-only’ basis by owner-operators, the business can literally be stowed away during quiet trading periods, unlike physical premises where rents, rates and utilities still need to be paid throughout the year. These cheaper costs of entry, combined with the lower ongoing overheads, make mobile catering opportunities a sensible starting point for anyone who is still learning the business.

The transportable nature of a mobile food business also gives the owner greater flexibility, as they can literally ‘go where the money is’, and secure short-term trading positions at local festivals, sports events and municipal areas where footfall is likely to be high. The current owner of the business is best placed to give you pointers on what sites and events work best commercially, but you should always do your own research when it comes to local trading standards and your ability to comply with the law - different councils may have different regulations regarding trading standards for mobile catering units, so it’s important to research each potential trading site carefully yourself.
