Good start from a push cart, but I think push carts are a bit out of date now. Again, depends what products are you selling.

When looking for push carts, you must match your products with the location. Cheapest push carts in singapore is in Shaw House/Centre(the one near suntec) its dirt cheap...else you can try chinatown too....as for neighbourhood malls, i suggest you build some good relationship with shop owners or push cart owners in the mall....

Gd luck!!!

RE: Sophisticated pushcarts

Hi there,

I'm missing pushcarts selling hotdogs! :D Often, I missed standing around the stall and eating a good hot dog and not having to go to food court or anything for a quick lunch. Certainly not sitting in front of my desk. 8-)

May I suggest you having a sophisticated pushcart selling quick lunches like good sandwichs (not those pathetic super slim sandwichs with mimimal fillings inside) or hotdogs like those from vikign hotdogs and you can move around the CBD area?

of course, I didn't factor in how you gonna get there with your pushcart, rainy days and stuff. but anyway, just throwing some ideas... :)

Good Luck

And why no food & drink? Could it be because that's the only thing that does sell in the area.

Mobile Hotdogs is a good idea, don't forget to wash it down with healthy drinking vinegar, to breakdown all the fatty acids!

hotdogs and quick lunches are good ideas, but i did read it somewhere u need to have liscense and also only allow to operate at certain hours unless you have a stand alone stall then will be different. I dont know how true is it, but better check with the authorities before you move on. Well, I think this a brilliant idea...better act fast so i can buy hot dogs and lunches from your push carts, else you will be buying from me haha...you know what i mean...:P

* juz kidding.

I reckon it's not that bad to operate a franchise of hotdog pushcarts only operational during lunch hours? 8-) 8-) 8-)
Hurry, I want to buy my lunch from these pushcarts!
