Kiosks and carts are becoming quite popular and incredibly profitable for many small business owners here in Africa and across the globe. Once considered an option for only low-end markets, these small and mobile storefront options are now frequently seen in upscale shopping malls and streets as well.

The appeal of kiosks and carts is that they are relatively easy to set up, low maintenance, highly accessible to a very targeted buying audience and are less expensive than opening up a retail duka. They are also mobile so one can transfer their location at will or when needed.

If you are thinking of starting a kiosk business of your own, consider some of the most common and successful ideas and product options available (Internet, Instagram, Pinterest etc.). Peruse through your local fabricator’s previous designs, whether executed or not. In many cases, a good fabricator may not be the best designer and vice versa. One can bring those two entities to work together

Be open minded, be budget conscious while not being unrealistic, allow your designer to express themselves and most of all, Stay positive.
