Sizzling Summer S


ummer…the time when most of us look forward to a break from the challenges of everyday life, and open our arms wide to an enjoyable


stretch of (hopefully) long, sunny days. Many of us, however, also want something to fill the time and to earn a bit of extra cash. The good news is that summer presents many opportunities for budding entrepreneurs. Whether food is your thing or if services are more your style, there is something for everybody. Of course, you’ll need to research your market, count your costs, find your USP (p22), price things right - and then sell, sell, sell (p26). Here are five summer start-up ideas.


SUMMER


TRIED & TESTED IDEAS

FOOD & DRINK


Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh lemonade, the sound of the ice cream van or the taste of a sweet, ripe strawberry? Just about everybody - perhaps bar the veggies among us - also loves the smell of a summer BBQ. At many events around the UK people will be cooking up a sausage storm and serving these on freshly baked rolls to hungry customers. So it’s time to get creative. Will you serve up strawberries dipped in hot chocolate on a windy, wet day or will it be a fresh mint, strawberry and cream smoothie in the sunshine? Maybe you’ll find a new twist on a summer classic and try Bug I-Scream, as Ashton Sheriff suggests on p22. WHERE? At local events in the area, in a local park, at the beach… WHAT? You’ll need stock and relevant equipment. You may need a street trading licence (p23). Be sure to investigate the Health & Safety considerations for selling food to the public.
