Five Fantastic Beverage Cart Ideas

Over our 40-year history, we’ve been fortunate to work with many exciting and interesting food vendors. From our humble beginnings as a hot dog cart stand, we’ve always recognized the importance of having tasty beverages to go with a delicious meal. But it’s not always necessary to have food and beverages served together.

Instead, many of our arena, travel center, and concession clients use standalone beverage carts and kiosks to serve drinks right where their customers want them. From branded and custom-designed carts to modular kiosks that match the look and feel of your building, our team can walk you through the design and manufacturing process of our one-of-a-kind Gallery beverage carts.

Today we’re sharing some of our favorite beverage cart ideas – from traditional to trendy, let us know what types of kiosks will quench your thirst!

Beverage Cart Idea #1: Hot Beverages

Over the years, we’ve created many innovative beverage carts and kiosks that serve hot beverages. You can find our carts serving coffee, cocoa, tea and other hot beverages in office buildings, hospitals, and travel centers like the one below located in a high-traffice area of a building serving office  work workers.

Beverage Cart Idea #4: Grab-n-Go

Not every venue requires custom-made or poured beverages, and in these situations, it’s great to have grab-n-go options available. Our Grab-n-Go kiosks can easily be customized for beer, soda, and other beverages. These staples at airports, travel centers, college campuses and hospitals let customers grab what they want quickly and efficiently.

Beverage Cart Idea #5: Shipping Containers

Repurposed shipping containers are one of the most fun design trends we’ve recently seen in food and beverage carts and kiosks. These large-capacity units can be built and designed to serve a plethora of beverage types. Whether it’s wine, beer, coffee, or kombucha, the large footprint of these units makes them a great addition to arenas, stadiums, and other large venues.
