Concession stands are used to sell food and beverages at fairs and carnivals, sporting events and music festivals. There are a variety of options in terms of concession stands, including barbecue stands, vending food trucks and trailers, mobile kitchens and fixed stands. Mobile varieties allow you to move from event to event while a fixed stand can lead to a regular clientele. Renting a concession stand requires taking things like price, rental features, and rental length into consideration.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Research concession stand rentals, such as whether you want to rent a mobile or fixed stand. Mobile stands allow you the freedom to park your stand wherever it is convenient as long as it follows city ordinances. Fixed stands allow customers to know your locations at all times. Cash Cow Concession Trailers is one concession rental option that offers mobile and fixed stands as well as vending trucks and mobile kitchens.

  2. 2

    Make a list of reputable concession stand rentals and call or e-mail each rental for information such as price, length of rental, and rental features. For example, some concession trailer options can include flip or lighted marquee signs.

  3. 3

    Work out a contract with your chosen renter. Be sure to read the contract carefully and ask any pertinent questions before signing.

Tips and warnings

  • Most cities require food vending licenses as well as a business license in order to operate your stand. Sites such as Festivals And offer a list of used concession trailers for sale if you would ultimately like to purchase a trailer or stand.
