23 Mobile Business Ideas

From Mobile Florist Services to Mobile Mattress Showrooms

— February 1, 2016 — Marketing
In addition to saving on the costly rent fees associated with a fixed location, mobile businesses have the option of following the crowd and meeting their users where they are instead of asking them to come to you.

The Uprooted Flower Truck is a New York City-based mobile florist that makes access to high-quality floral arrangements an on-demand service. The truck was founded on the idea that by not having a permanent location, the business was avoiding the daunting reality of high New York City rents in the interest of passing on those savings to consumers.

Meanwhile, Tell a Story is a roaming bookstore that takes its impressive library with it on the road. The vibrant blue and white vehicle is a tourism project in Portugal that aims to make Portuguese literature more accessible to tourists.
