We’re a generation of entrepreneurs, with a report by the Office for National Statistics showing that self employment in the UK is the highest it’s been in the last 40 years. This incorporates a variety of employments. However, many of you are selling your products at events, festivals, craft fairs, seasonal markets and other opportunities. The kiosk will give you a chance to promote your business. Social media makes it easier to promote your business to a wider audience but, in order to truly sell your product; you need to stand out from the other stalls and products on offer. With first impressions made in as little as 15 seconds you need something spectacular that draws people in.
Setting up shop with the our outdoor kiosk
Our brand new Outdoor Kiosk does just that. The W7.2m x D6.10m Kiosk comes in 12.5m timber panels making assembly and disassembly easy whether setting up at a permanent location or constantly moving around the country – we even give you all the screws, nails and fixings to put it together. You’ve just got to make sure you keep them in a safe place whilst transporting the Kiosk from location to location (I suggest a ziplock bag).
Starting your own business can be expensive with very little profit in the beginning until your business takes off so every penny saved helps. At under £1,000, the purchase of an Outdoor Kiosk is a small investment that allows you to own your own store without having to pay rent, sign any lease commitments or have to find money for any additional costs. This results in less monthly outgoing expenditure giving you money to spend on advertising, plot rental, staff costs and allows you to increase your customer base and make your business even more successful.
A crucial part of running your own business is speed. You need to be able to present your product in the best possible light in the shortest time. Our Outdoor Kiosk consists of 12.5m thick timber panels that are cut to size and secured using bolts, wingnuts and a few screws making assembly, and disassembly, easy. This helps ensure you take advantage of those last minute business opportunities. As your business expands and consumer demand requires you purchase a second, or even third, Kiosk the easy construction means your colleagues will easily be able to build it too making sure your business gets maximum exposure al l year round.
Another important feature of the Kiosk is its overall look as first impressions really do count. We use slow grown Spruce for our Outdoor Kiosk as it is less porous than pine making it less likely to shrink, warp or split over time. It also creates less sap than other cheaper alternatives making the possibility of sap ruining your merchandise less likely. Further to this, we pressure treat all the timber use in our Kiosk protecting it from rot and fungal decay. Throughout the pressure treatment process, we add an additive that gives the timber a polished, rich brown finish rather than the green colour usually associated with pressure treatment. The pressure treatment allows us to give you a ten year guarantee against rot and fungal decay.
The interior of the Kiosk is as important as the exterior as you’ll spend hours of your day inside. The slanted roof of the Outdoor Kiosk gives you plenty of space (6’ 9”) to stand towards the front of the kiosk while talking to customers and closing the sale preventing aching muscles and bones caused by being bent over for hours. The bottom of the slanted Kiosk is spacious enough (5’ 8”) for you to display a variety of stock to sell. Although we do not supply electricity with our Outdoor Kiosk, a simple discussion with your local electrician will have you connected in no time so you can display your products in the best possible light (pun intended). It also means you can take card payments along with cash so will never miss out on a potential sale.
At the end of the day, if you’re not packing up and going home but returning the next day, you want to leave your Kiosk safe and secure. With this in mind we use multiple locks throughout our Kiosk to make sure all entry points remain secure. On the door used for entering and exiting the Kiosk we have two locks. The interior of the Kiosk door has a shoot bolt to fix the door in place while you are inside.
When you leave the Kiosk, and want to secure the entry for the night, simply close the metal latch door hasp and padlock (not provided) it in place to stop unwanted visitors. The hatch uses two slick pin locks to secure the arms in place which double as the locks for the hatch. When you’re finished, you can simply close the latch and slide the slick pins into the two entry points on either side of the hutch door to secure it to the timber frame.
Whether you are just starting out in your business, or an experienced entrepreneur looking for a high quality portable space to show off your product, the Outdoor Kiosk gives you a strong, easily transportable ‘pop up shop’. It ensures you won’t miss a business opportunity again.
