80 Imaginative Pop-Ups

From Temporary Coffee Shops to Portable Diners

— April 23, 2012 — Business
Temporary establishments have become a go-to framework for fashion labels, restaurants and product innovators, as seen with these imaginative pop-ups. The concept of transitory vending has caught on, allowing companies to set up shop for short periods of time with minimal construction requirements. These stores are for the most part ecologically sound, leaving little trace of a remarkably brief existence period. These imaginative pop-ups are ushering in an exciting consumer revolution, providing high-end goods for the purpose of fast-paced enjoyment.

These pop-up shops have been continuously preferred by a hefty selection of businesses for practical reasons. Investing in permanent flagship establishments is costly and risky, often resulting in all-out bankruptcy. These ad-hoc models avoid a handful of troublesome liabilities, making them sound methods of operation.
