  1. 1

    Find a prime location for your mobile juice bar. Ain for high visibility and convenient access. Prime locations for a cart or kiosk include shopping centres, offices, hospitals, hotels, colleges, athletic clubs, government buildings, airports, supermarkets and large department stores. You may also set up a juice van outside community centres, tourist attractions, beaches or shopping centres. Write a business plan identifying how much traffic you expect to bring in. Present this to owners and property managers when selling your mobile juice bar idea.

  2. 2

    Create a clever name for your juice bar. Then register your business with your local council (you'll need food safety certificates and a street trading licence) and HM Revenue and Customers. Your van will also need to meet health regulations.

  3. 3

    Familiarise yourself with popular supplements, anti-oxidants and popular fruits and vegetables. Research which combinations of fruits can provide appealing health benefits such as anti-ageing or memory enhancement. Experiment at home making juices and smoothies and get friends and family try them out.

  4. 4

    Buy your van or cart and supplies. Visit local farmers to source organic or all-natural fruits. Buy juicers, blenders, refrigeration, sinks, jugs, branded cups and napkins, a menu board and signage for your cart or van. Get your cash till, receipt paper and accounting tools by signing up for a business account, which will allow you to accept credit and debit cards.

  5. 5

    Advertise your mobile juice bar at health clubs and colleges. Join your local Chamber of Commerce and network with other businesses, such as hotels.
