A gazebo is great for a number of reasons – one of the key benefits being that a gazebo has a roof, perfect for those days when the rain decides to pour, which can potentially be any day across the year in the UK.

If you are thinking about a catering gazebo for your business then you have come to the right place. We have everything you need to know about what size gazebo to get for your needs and your business.

In this blog post today we will be discussing gazebo sizes including which size you will need and which one will best cater for your needs.

Gazebos for the Mobile Catering Industry

Gazebos have many different uses, and are perfect for all different kinds of events including mobile catering. As you travel around with your catering business you will discover that a gazebo is a great option for a type of mobile food vendor to transport.

Easy to erect and dismantle, lightweight, and compact, it is no wonder this is a popular choice for many mobile food caterers.

Gazebos are totally versatile. They can be kitted out with whatever you need in order to make your business succeed. Gazebos can also be adapted and can continue to adapt as your business begins to evolve, change or grow.

Renting a Gazebo

Renting is always a fantastic option and a great solution if you don’t want to commit to the full purchase of your own equipment.

Renting is also perfect if you only plan on selling your products from your catering business seasonally, such as in the summer or winter months when music festivals or the Christmas wintertime markets are on.


How Big Is a Gazebo?

One of the most popular sized gazebos runs at 3m tall by 3m wide. This size is pretty standard and a versatile size that many opt for, especially when just starting out.

The size you need will of course depend on what you need it for and also what kind of food and/or drink products you intend on creating and selling from your gazebo.

If you go for the standard and favoured 3m x 3m sized gazebo, this will be big enough for a catering business that is small to medium-sized. It will have plenty of room if you are just beginning your mobile catering journey too.

A Gazebo Capacity Guide

If you want a guide on the capacity, including how many people your gazebo can hold. This may help you decide and be sure which sized gazebo will be the right one for your business.

  • 3m x 3m holds roughly 6-10 people standing
  • 4.5m x 3m holds roughly 15-18 people standing
  • 6m x 3m holds roughly 12-20 people standing

Of course, if you are selling food and drink from your gazebo, it will not be full of people but in fact your products, equipment and staff or others that you have working with you.

The estimate of people will help you gauge how big the gazebo will be once it is erected and if it will house all of the equipment and stock that you need and will have with you.

Hopefully, this capacity guide gives you a clearer idea of the size of the gazebo and what it can hold. If you are still unsure, contact us at Big Kahuna and we will be happy to have a chat with you to understand your needs and to advise you from there.

We can help you factor in the equipment you will have with you and whether or not the size of the gazebo you are thinking of will be the appropriate size for you.


Firstly we have the popular size with many caterers, the 3m Pop Up Gazebo. As talked about previously in this blog, the 3m x 3m is perfect for a whole range of uses if you are a modest-sized mobile catering company. Easy to set up, sturdy, quality and versatile, all with enough space for your business.



Next, we have the 4.5m Pop Up Gazebo. If you think the 3m gazebo will be a bit of a squeeze or are ready for that next upgrade, then why not go for this 4.5m option?



Finally, we have the largest of our gazebos you can hire from us at Big Kahuna. This 6m Pop Up Gazebo is large enough to hold up to 20 people standing so we are sure you will be able to fit everything underneath if you are a larger company.

All of our gazebos to hire can be hired with or without sidewalls and they can be set up on grass or hard ground such as concrete.
