A Market Stall Makes The Perfect Pit-Stop For Hungry Workers

They say an army marches on its stomach, but no doubt your workforce has a pretty hearty appetite too.

As many of us spend more time at work, we are often faced with the prospect of grabbing lunch or an afternoon snack on the move or whenever we get 10 minutes to spare.

Yet, with many food outlets and restaurants closed due to COVID-19 regulations, finding somewhere to take a well-earned break and grab a bite to eat is becoming harder and harder.

So have you considered providing your own market stall or becoming a market stall trader for hungry workers to refuel before hitting the road or maybe even taking a well-earned pit stop in during a busy day? Some days, it may seem as though an office is extremely busy, yet, creating an eye-catching street food stall to stand out from the crowd will certainly entice and attract customers.

Whether this is an indoor and outdoor experience, or you decide to just stick to one of them – possibly thinking about the weather on these occasions should decide your placement. Here at Big Kahuna, it is our mission to help create sustainable businesses using food stalls, market stalls, kiosks, etc. Continue reading to see how you can help hungry workers!


Encourage Healthy Eating

As well as being quick and convenient, sometimes, the lure of a fast food outlet or roadside cafe can be difficult to avoid for workers who spend a lot of time on the move.

Yet, have you ever thought about the long-term health impact this might have on your workforce if this is a daily occurrence?

By offering your own food options, not only will you be providing a convenient, friendly and welcoming environment for all your workers – but you’ll also be able to offer a healthy and well-balanced menu for them to choose from. Therefore, becoming a market stall holder will not only be an advantage for your business, but you will see a vast improvement in food choices being made.

Providing high-quality healthy alternatives will give a reason for customers to come back, or even recommend this food to their friends and family. Consequently, putting a large quantity of time into running a market stall can reap some lucrative advantages in the long run.

Create a Sociable Environment

Socialising is becoming more and more difficult due to COVID-19 restrictions and the traditional workplace canteen has become something of a distant memory for most employees. Small businesses, of course, will need social media to promote their stalls in the local area (the most important way to get themselves out there). However, disregarding the local city centre and getting out there to try and make a name for yourself should not go a miss.

Not only does the canteen provide meals for hungry workers, but it’s also a great place for colleagues to mingle, chat and catch up – encouraging a friendly and more sociable workforce.

By opening your own market stall or outdoor food business, you’ll be adhering to all the latest safety protocols, as well as providing your workers with a safe and friendly place to relax and unwind. Not only that but if you’re handing out business cards to the local community (if the local council consents to your wants and needs) – you will be able to hand out free samples if need be to build a loyal fan base.

This ties in perfectly with unbeatable customer service. If you’re making people’s day via your food stall and your lovely team members, there will be room for lots of growth as more people learn about your project.


Increase Productivity

Many people will skip breakfast or lunch because of time constraints at work and will then feel sluggish later in the day as a result.

Ultimately this can harm productivity and could even be dangerous if your workforce is out on the road for long periods of time and feeling sluggish behind the wheel.

Providing somewhere where your workers can enjoy a balanced, nourishing meal at any time of the day is not just good for team morale, but you will likely see the benefits when it comes to productivity in the long term.
