How to rent a kiosk
Kiosks can be found in many locations. (kiosk image by Thomas Röske from

Kiosks are often seen in malls around the country, where little shops are set up selling items like hats, sunglasses, movies or other specific items. Starting a kiosk business can get a small business up and running without the high expenses of other options. For a small retail business, a kiosk can be the best way to get the business started and making profits. Renting a kiosk is often the best way to start a business with the least expense possible.


  1. 1

    Research the kiosks available in the area, especially in malls. Find out the number of kiosk vendors that are selling the same type of products to avoid finding out that the mall or location will not allow the new kiosk due to the products. Kiosks in malls are extremely varied to bring in as many customers as possible, so find a location where there is not much competition for the product being sold.

  2. 2

    Find the best locations for a kiosk. Locations where customers will see the kiosk can ensure that profits are made while locations far from customers or with few customers will result in low profits.

  3. 3

    Obtain business licensing and set up state tax for the small business. Each state has slightly different requirements for licensing and taxes, but most require some paperwork that should be filled out before setting up the business. Even a small business like a kiosk needs to fill out this paperwork for tax purposes. The kiosk cannot be rented without proof of a business license and proper tax paperwork.

  4. 4

    Get insured. Kiosk businesses should be insured like any other business. The insured items should be the items being sold or similar items.

  5. 5

    Rent a kiosk. Kiosks can be rented directly from a mall by calling the mall management, expressing an interest, telling them which products will be sold and filling out their necessary paperwork, or they can be rented through other management locations, depending on the where the kiosk is set up. All mall kiosks should be rented from the mall management while kiosks set in other locations should be rented from whichever service is renting them.
