What is mobile gastronomy and what is it?

Mobile gastronomy means selling food with the help of various vehicles, including food carts and bicycles. It is a mobile bar that you can place in strategic places of the city. One day you can decide to go to the promenade to offer your products to the stroller. Then you can drive to a large office building where employees are looking for aromatic coffee. Later, an open-air festival is a good solution. The possibilities are endless – just feel what your customers are currently looking for. It is remarkable flexibility, thanks to which you can immediately respond to market needs.

Moreover, your offer may also change. In summer, you can focus on selling ice cream, and in winter, offer hot drinks. As a result, your own catering business will generate income throughout the year. You can also choose seasonality – the advantage of mobile gastronomy is that you can hide the vehicle in the garage at any time and close the business, and then start the next season with it.

The first step is to buy the right vehicle. A gastronomic trolley or a gastronomic bike must meet the restrictive standards of the Sanitary and Epidemiological Station. The right equipment is essential here. For this reason, it is worth betting on vehicles created by professionals. The brand operates dynamically in Poland Foodbikewhich produces personalized catering carts and bicycles with full equipment depending on your offer. Are you planning to sell ice cream, coffee, waffles, or maybe you want to offer hot soups, Asian dishes or something else? Foodbike will create a mobile cart or catering bike tailored to your plans.


Mobile gastronomy requires opening a business. You also need to obtain the necessary sanitary permits, so it is worth making sure that your bike or catering cart meets the standards. In addition, you will need permission from the property owner to set up there with the vehicle. Often they can be obtained completely free of charge, in other cases it generates small costs around one hundred zlotys. This is enough to start taking your first steps in mobile gastronomy.
