Creating a Mall Kiosk Business Plan

Share This Post

Do you find yourself asking questions such as how do I start a kiosk business, how much does it cost to own or rent a mall kiosk, where can I obtain funding, or what type of merchandise should I stock my cart with, maybe, it’s time to take control of your future and start your own retail kiosk business. If so, you will need to create a business plan, mapping out why this new business endeavor will be profitable. If you have already researched owning a kiosk cart than you know the benefits. The most popular benefit being that you can try out various products with minimal risks. Learn about the many benefits of owning a kiosk cart in detail here:

 Financial: Estimate your profit and compare against your monthly expenses to get an idea of your ROI and then decide if you will need an investor. If you need financing, who will provide your financial backing? An individual investor or a bank? Remember, if you must borrow money or get an independent investor, that money is an added expense.

  Product: Decide on merchandise that is trending and not offered at a current kiosk at your chosen location. What makes your product different? How will it bring in more customers? You may want to offer a variety of products at one location in the beginning to get some idea of what and who you are marketing to in a given area. Then decide if your kiosk will specialize in one product or offer more choices to your customers.

Target Market: Detail your target market. Men, women, young or old. Who will enjoy the product you have to offer? The larger the target audience the more potential sales you will have. You will want to also decide on the size of your kiosk and location. High-traffic areas in the mall will be great for business but may also have a higher fee.

Acting on your dreams and staying focused on your goals will help you succeed. Once you have created your business plan and researched local areas that are ideal for your kiosk, you will need to contact your investors (if you have any) and let them know your plans and be sure they agree with the actions moving forward. If you haven’t contacted the owner of the rental space, you will need to do that rather quickly as well. Sales space can be limited and many times there is stiff competition for the best traffic areas to set up businesses.

Once you are to this point the hard part is over. Now you just need to provide your new customers with an exceptional experience. Just remember, “A satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all.” – Miceal LeBoeuf

“To Whom It May Concern,

Let me take a moment,out of my very busy day to review my experience of Sebastian Chaviano.
Sebastian is a dream customer service/technical support person. He’s extremely professional and nano-second responsive in every interaction. We’ve even worked on a chronic issue where I learned that his perseverance and patience are also outstanding. Over my 33 years of working in Silicon Valley, I’ve rarely met someone as easy with which to work as Sebastian.

That said, over the past 3 months of getting to know Nova POS, for the first time, I’ve also worked with Frank, Jeffrey, Jose, & Tomer – all provide the immediate service and answers I’ve required. You have a great team at Nova POS. Keep up the good work.”


My name is Mert Firat, and I am the proud owner of multiple flourishing retail chains in a rapidly expanding big city. Since 2008, Nova has been a cornerstone of our ability to operate in a such a fast-paced urban environment. The top-notch customer support team at Nova has consistently exceeded my expectations, ensuring any and all concerns are promptly addressed. The live-support feature has been a lifesaver on several occasions, with expert assistance just a click away. The user-interface of the software is incredibly easy to learn, operate, and teach new employees. This hassle-free experience is imperative for the entire company,  from the CEO to every newly hired employee. What has truly set our experience apart are our account manager and technical support manager, who have been a game-changer in streamlining the process and finding creative solutions. We could not be happier with Nova, and would not be here today without the outstanding experience we’ve continuously been having for the past 16 years.

Kind Regards,
