I’m Wondering How Much the Bigger Events Charge - Mobile Catering

by Stu

Hi, I’m wondering how much the bigger events charge? Like the motor racing or air shows things like that.

I have got a five 14 foot mobile catering trailer and the main food we do is, fries, burgers, hotdogs, and cold/hot drinks.

I have only had it 6 months and do the local market 5 times, but the rent for the day is £350 and after overheads I was only making £150 best.
I have 2 other people that will work with me at larger events 1 cooking and 2
serving?

Thanks for your time

Pitch Prices For Larger Mobile Catering Events
by: David

Hi Stu,

Rent for the bigger shows can be a lot more money but then you can also make much more income.

Prices can vary from £100?s to £1000s for a few days of trading depending on how big and popular the events are. Also it?s worth trying to negotiate your rent and get it cheaper ? which can?t hurt.

I knew some who was catering in Glastonbury and the rent was in the thousands for a few days of trading, he seemed to do well out of it but would not tell me exactly how much money he made.

Some more info here:

Glastonbury Traders Info

Try calling up some event organisers and getting some prices from them to give you a more accurate pitch price.

Also look in the www.eventsbook.co.uk which list events from all around the country and included contact phone numbers.

Best of luck
David
