These containers make it easy for several people to start a small scale business without having to drop a lot of money just to rent a shop. There are several businesses which can do business in shipping containers in 2019, and among them are some of the following:

Coffee Shop: With several business opportunities arising from coffee such as roasting, serving drinks etc., the coffee and tea industry is an ideal starting place for any entrepreneur. Shipping containers are very useful for housing coffee shops because of their easy customization as well as speed to market. Most important, the shipping containers can be moved easily, meaning you can introduce yourself to new markets and cultivate a wide array of customers far easier than from a brick and mortar store.

Specialty Retail: For those that do not know what this entails, it is a kind of shop that focuses mainly on a very specific product category. The employees are knowledgeable, passionate, and focused on providing a more personalized and in-depth experience when compared to larger stores. Occasionally, these shops will be standing free but they usually appear as part of a larger shopping center as a booth, kiosk or pop-up. With a container store, you can move closer to where your target audience may be!

These temporary structures are fantastic for these events that only last a few days, it can all be packed up and moved where you need it! What’s great about these containers is even though they are portable, they’ve super heavy duty and give you a great little safe place to work out of. Shipping containers provide a simple structure that bars need to service various events.

Quick Service Restaurants: Each and every week a restaurant isn’t open, a gross loss of 2% is incurred. Shipping containers allow you to open your new business within a short duration rather than spending months to erect a typical brick and mortar structure. If planned appropriately and built with consideration for safety and codes, everything from a line service QSR to a full-service kitchen can fit in perfectly into a shipping container.

Convenience Store: Convenience stores are there to provide ease and accessibility. The introduction of shipping containers has also added a new line of benefit to these quick-stop-shops. They have lightweight, are movable, and can be used to meet the need of customers wherever they may be.

Pop-Up Shop: Making a pop-up shop stand out may be challenging. In most cases, we come across the old aesthetic, accompanied by the same decrepit tent. However, shipping containers give a nice new appearance off and can be customized. The pop-up game will completely change with the use of mobile container shops.

Mobile Showroom: There are some major changes happening in the retail industry and one of them is the introduction of a ‘showroom’ concept for brands that are no longer interested in maintaining large inventory. Rather, brands are developing interactive, concept stores that allow customers to handle popular merchandise. The use of shipping containers makes the mobile showroom business easy while minimizing the running cost.
