We will advise you on finding suitable events and locations at which to operate and our franchise package means once you have acquired the essential business assets i.e. the truck, you can begin trading immediately.
*All territories have equal business opportunities, the variation will depend on factors including how many hours you work and the size of vehicle you choose to operate.
Our Business Models
- Roaming trade locations refers to festivals, community events, sports events and private functions. These are predominantly weekend based operations, however they can extend into the week day (depending on the event). We have established links with many events organisers around the UK over the years, but are aware of there being a myriad of events around the UK that we have not explored.
- Permanent trade locations are typically week day operations based at a permanent pitch such as a train station that has high commuter footfall and passing trade. Special events could extend operation to weekends.
- Crossover between the roaming and permanent trade models.
The Event Sector
Food and drink has become a highly considered component to events. As festivals and events have become a regular component of peoples expenditure, the sector has continually grown, maturing and diversifying and in turn creating a plethora of new catering opportunities. Event organisers are seeking alternative catering providers such as Oatopia to satisfy the demands of their customers and make their event stand out.
Oatopia has established a nationwide network of contacts within the events sector, building a reputation for providing excellent food and service. As an Oatopia franchisee you benefit with the option to tap into this network, and the ability to apply for events under a well reputed brand name, thus increasing your chance of securing new trade pitches and opportunities.
