Let us introduce the Retail Kiosk
When considering opening a shop, usually the first option that springs to mind is to rent a brick and mortar unit or go online with an e-commerce site. There is, however, a third option that can be used, either in conjunction with the other two or as a standalone business plan: the use of a retail kiosk.

Why a Retail Kiosk could be the option for you
There are many reasons why using a retail kiosk is an attractive option. Here are just three of them.
Ready Made Customers
If you've spend some time researching various available sites or locations for a retail kiosk or portable shop , you could find yourself right in the middle of a high traffic area where your customers are ready and waiting for you. For example, positioning a retail kiosk in a shopping mall, town centre, theme park or stadium will put you right in the heart of all the buying action. Your potential customers will already on hand and there’s no need to try and increase the footfall as the hard work has been done for you.
Start a Business on a Small Investment
The start-up costs of a retail kiosk are extremely low, in comparison to, for example, brick and mortar stores in high traffic town centre locations. You can get up and running for far less than a traditional store. The overheads are lower, the costs relating to fitting out your store are reduced and the associated costs, such as heating, electric or advertising are considerably less too.
Raise Profits Quickly
As the start-up and overhead costs are low, it will be easier and quicker to see a great return in profits. Do your research into pricing, pick the right location (or locations) for your retail kiosk and you could begin making money from day one. With ready-made customers, often paying in cash, all you need to do is provide them with a range of desirable products and the sales should follow quickly. And, with a reduction in expenses, this means more money for your accounts.
