Vending Carts "Big Profits"

Share Article

Malls are excited about the money generated by mobile vending carts.

Carts are a great way to earn an impressive income with very little overhead. They're not just for temporary tenants anymore. Once viewed as nothing more than cheap pushcarts good for a few extra dollars at the holidays, this specialty leasing segment has now grown into an estimated $10 billion year-round business that can add millions of dollars to a developer's bottom line.

The specialty leasing option can offer double-digit growth in revenues, while affording a cart or kiosk owner a low cost way to get their product in front of the customer.

As an example, a recent customer bought an espresso kiosk and set it up in a mall. The excited customer called after the first month in business and said he was shutting down his store in town to open more espresso kiosks due to their superior profit margins. In the first month he had sold over $125,000 worth of product with a profit of $45,000.

Malls are also excited about keeping the carts and kiosks rented all year round, rather than just for the holiday seasons.

Carriage Works, Inc. has been manufacturing carts, kiosks and vending carts for 32 years, but in the last 5 years has seen a huge increase in sales for "Retail Merchandising Units".

To make it more affordable for entrepreneurs on a limited budget, the Carriage Works has been purchasing a variety of used carts and retail units to restore and resell at a very low cost.

It started out as a way to help the malls get rid of their old RMU'S, and now has turned into a large part of the business at Carriage Works.

Barbara Evensizer, owner of Carriage Works, states that they have as many as 150 carts ready to ship out with prices starting as low as $1,200.

Container loads of these refurbished carts are shipped all over the world on a weekly basis.
