Street food trends for 2019
As a street food vendor, you need to keep one eye on the latest trends, ensuring you stay ahead of the game.
We’ve picked a couple of the latest trends that many of you have probably jumped on and implemented in your business already, but if you haven’t, certainly worth giving them some thought…
- Eco-friendly containers & packaging
This is certainly a trend here to stay. The UK produces in excess of 170M tonnes of waste a year, and dramatically reducing this is everyone’s business. People are choosing who to buy from based on packaging & environmental implications – so make sure your food containers, cups, straws and other packaging is sustainable. Not only will this help you keep your regular customers, you’ll also attract new ones.
- Street food is evolving
Gone are the days of just burgers, hot dogs and cheesy chips. People are looking for mouth watering delicacy’s from around the world. Concentrate on authenticity & quality and you can’t go far wrong. The more unique the better.
Veganism is becoming big business and is having a big effect on the street food industry. You don’t have to concentrate purely on vegan food, but certainly worth offering some vegan options.
Until next time… Happy trading…
