  • Mobile Coffee Cart

    Hi guys,

    I am really interested in getting a mobile coffee cart started. I was hoping someone might know some useful information on things to do with starting a coffee cart business. Any information would be appreciated e.g. laws, licenses, profitability thoughts?

    Regulations can vary state to state.
    Where are you?

        Just ring your local council and see what they require you to have in you cart and just go from there. work out if you want a van,trailer, or speedie cart and what events you can pick up and who else in your area is in the same business

          You could try Carts Australia. There are a lot in Brisbane CBD and they are working well.

              Brisbane is a big area Nancy.
              Care to narrow it down for us?

                I reckon that the Australian market is pretty much saturated with bad coffee, especially in the CBD of most big cities. If on the other hand, you want to invest in great coffee, staff and equipment and produce coffee to the best possible standard, you will offer something special and like the great places, also be successful. This requires commitment to the bean and the process, not the dollar.

                  In my opinion the answer is yes to both.

                  Yes its saturated (with mediocre and bad coffee).
                  Yes its viable if you are going to make GOOD coffee and can get your reputation out there.

                  *snap Chris (I should have refreshed my screen).


                  P.S. Welcome to CS Nancy.

                    Dont know about Brisbane, however while in Adelaide last Friday I commented to my better half that I would hate to be trying to make a living out of coffee, there seems to be a roaster/espresso bar on every corner.

                      Friendly and personalised customer service
                      Fast service and turnaround times
                      Amazing espresso and milk drinks
                      Foot traffic

                      I think if you can tick the above four criteria you have a recipe for success anywhere in Australia no matter how strong the competition is.

                              If you do a search with google I think the Sydney City regs are there in a PDF somewhere, they seem to be the defacto standard used by a lot of councils. Basically 2 sinks one for hands one for wash up. Easy clean surfaces (read metal) refrigeration and know how to handle food without killing anyone ;-)
