Tips on Setting-up a Burger Stand

1. Location

– If you can’t afford rent space, you can sell in front of your house. Just make sure you won’t be bothering the neighbors and you obtain necessary permits from your barangay.

– Find a space that has significant traffics.

– Best time to sell is in the afternoon until early morning. People still look for after midnight snacks that aren’t as filling as a rice meal.

– A 4×20 food cart with designs costs around P6,000 – P7,000. Price varies depending on the size, materials and structure.

– It’s also important that your stand has its own name and a signage.
