Let's take a look at some custom-fabricating ideas that may bring your vision to fruition.
From Mobile Retail to Catering, here are 5 Out of the Box Uses for Custom Vehicles
Let's face it, brick and mortar storefronts are extremely expensive - and risky- startups. Many food truck builders only understand and speak the food industry lingo. However, APEX is different than some of the other builders. We are a design-build firm that specializes in mobile food trucks and trailers but have the capabilities and in-house resources to complete the other specialty projects, including mobile broadcasting studio, sampling, catering, clothing boutique, and sports merchandising. Let's take a look at 5 Out of the Box Uses for Custom Vehicles...
#1: Mobile Boutique
Retail space is expensive; combined with all of the other brick mortar expenses. APEX has built several mobile boutique trucks for higher-end boutique retailers. The ability to travel TO your customers and your prime audience is a huge advantage of the mobile boutique. APEX has an in-house design and engineering team onsite to provide you with renderings and a floor plan to suit your needs.
#2: Sports Apparel/Merchandise
Many major league sporting teams are turning to mobile retail and merchandising trucks to bring the product to the fans. The ability to have your truck fully-branded with your team logo and full of sporting apparel is a great way to increase revenue stream before the big game. This avenue of sales has a lesser overhead cost than retail space, and can be reconfigured for special promotions and events that the athletic team is engaging in.
#3: Mobile Catering
From weddings to corporate events, mobile catering trucks are gaining popularity. The ability to have an industrial-grade kitchen within a custom-branded step van, increases productivity, sales, and overall visibility.
#4: Mobile Healthcare Services
From a mobile mammography truck to a dialysis-mobile, the need to bring healthcare to patients is increasing. As our population continues to age, it's a viable option of equipping a custom truck with all of the necessary medical equipment and traveling around to reach your area.
#5: Product Sampling
Market research can be expensive; so many brands have found the value in building a custom product sampling vehicle to bring the product into the lives of your consumers. Whether you're introducing a new product line, or an entirely new brand, utilizing a mobile vehicle enables you to customize the user experience.
