In this blog post, we'd like to talk about the promises and challenges associated with running your own mobile food business.

When you run your own business, you're making a promise to yourself, and to your customers. 

You're promising yourself that you'll follow your dreams of building a business and doing so on your own terms. 

You're promising your customers that you'll deliver a quality product that they want to consistently come back to you for. 

How do you keep these promises? By ensuring that you follow your plan. 

What's the plan?
There is the business plan, and the personal plan. 


In a business plan you define your business: 

- Who do you plan to sell to? 
- Research your competition. 
- Set a budget for equipment. 
- Determine your profit margin. 
- Find a location, or locations. 

In a personal plan, you define your interests: 

 - What do I want to sell? 
- What do I like and dislike about the business? 
- What's the personality of my business? 
- Am I ready to go out and sell? 
- Do I like dealing with the public? 

You are a niche business! 

You can't sell a quality product without knowing how, where, and when you're going to sell it. That's why it is important to choose your niche, and your product, with care. 

At Bike and a Box, we can help you to decide on that product, and how and where to sell it. Because your business is mobile, you can go to where your customers are, instead of waiting for them. 

What about the challenges? 

Running your own business is always a challenge. It requires dedication, time, and investment -- not just in your equipment, but in yourself. 


Client Retention 

- Changing locations? Give customers a heads-up on social media. 
- Any specials/discounts to people on your mailing list? 
- Mobile marketing works better than print marketing. Use it! 

Serious Business 

The mobile food industry is becoming a major part of the food industry in this country.
