    I'm looking for advise. I am thinking of starting my first business. I was wondering how difficult or easy it would be to start a food trailer or burger van business up. What are the upsides and downsides. What regulations do you have to follow.

    Regards

    Nigel

    Hello, it's not hard at all. A couple of my clienys started and they said joining ncass was key as it had discounted door hygiene courses and guides on how to start up. https://www.ncass.org.uk/mobile-cat...pe/how-to-start-a-mobile-street-food-business

    Most people start with a fold away stall to save costs but we just helped one of clients get a trailer which is wrapped with their logo and fitted with the equipment.

    What food do you want to sell? And where will it be pitched?

    This is the question as we are just at the thought process and research point at the moment. We are based in the Midlands though was thinking about a rum shack or burger bar

    I m based in london and there are some good ideas, like a duck truck based on hoisin crispy duck and chips.

    Cheese wheel carbanara - Google it, its quite interesting

    Carribean food is taking off.

    The key is to have a different idea or spin to get people either paying more or coming back in droves.

    Asian fusion does well in food trucks so perhaps look at a different type of fusion? Other than that Halloumi Fries seem very popular these days, and giant Yorkshire puddings!
