Beautiful Catering Cart (Candied Nuts, Burgers etc.) - Devon


Made by the Victorian Cart company.

In near new condition.

Very easy. Great demand. Very high profit margins.

I used this cart for two Christmas seasons and this summer season. I sold caramelised nuts and spiced mulled apple juice (Christmas) and homemade lemonade (summer)
Simple recipe with no risk of food expiring so very little waste (Nuts & sugar - nothing else. And for the drink apple juice, cinnamon, orange zest and star anise - heat it - Serve it. That's it!

I came up with this idea after watching this on YouTube:

“The famous roasted nut carts of new York city”

But added on the drink to maximise profit per sale.

Easy to run with just one person as it's so simple.

I sold nuts / mulled juice because it was easy and made money. However, as it is essentially a cart with two burners and a sink, so you can cook anything you want from it.

No insurance costs - No Maintenace. Free to store if you have the space and no upkeep.

As the cart is only 1.4M I could set up in places the larger units couldn't so away from the other food vendors who were all outside (so no competition) In high footfall areas (I could often just squeeze onto the end of a row) and indoors!

Also, because it was such a small unit, the stand would be inexpensive and often I could get in places that were fully booked to everyone else.

The cart cost new £5495 + VAT

+ 20 litre gas catering urn £330 + Copper pans £200

Total £6530 +VAT (£7836 inc.)

Selling because this was a side-line to my other business (I help people with insomnia) My main business has now taken off, so I don't have the time to run the food business anymore.

No risk - Comparatively inexpensive unit compared to catering vans etc and you could use it a few years, lick of paint and you could sell it on for the same price you bought for. (You also don't have to pay VAT which you would have done if buying new!)

You’ll need a trailer or a high top van to transport.
