    Good Morning all,

    Im interested in renting and Ice Cream cart/Coffee Cart.

    I am a uni business graduate and starting my first venture.

    I plan on attending busy events and have had discussions with the authorities in

    Sheffield to setup around areas of the City Centre.

    If there is anyone that could help me out on this id be very grateful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind Regards,

    David Thompson

    Hey Anton,

    I managed to buy an ice cream push cart from ebay.

    I know need a van to transport it from place to place.

    I've found some local ice cream suppliers willing to do me a good deal.

    Always happy to help if i can as im a startup myself.

    Regards,

    David

    this sounds a great idea buying an ice cream cart. good luck with your first venture. Where i used to work there wasnt a canteen or anything in the offices you had to bring your own lunch, you could always market offices and pull up outside during their breaks or lunches and bring in extra custom that way maybe?

    Hi David,
    Maybe we could talk more through email about the business: leslie.anton (at) hotmail.com
    I am more interested in the coffee side but need to do more research.

    Yes I think you can (Sing for your city), just would need some help from somebody with any experience before I invest and lose it:)
    It would be good to build up many selling points and invest it into store(s).
    Not sure I could do that on my own... any idea who could help?
    People in the business not that open (I understand that)

    Please look at pitch rental costs and availability and access to shows. show organisers make their money from subing out pitchs at costs which are often punitive. If you are still interested the showmans show guide is a good source of events dates. Also work for someone else for a few events to get a grasp of the business on their cost

    Thanks for your help. The aim is to find somebody doing it. I would not mind investing in with somebody but that is hard to find a person working the money. I invested in franchise stores just before the recession so extra carefull now. Studied economics so not a complete idiot:) but do find it hard to find a low cost start to something that works:)

    We opened a successful sandwich takeaway business copying a big chain in london. This gave us equipment suppliers, layout and a business plan
