Now over 2,000 separate businesses
Street food on a larger scale has been with us for around ten years now, going from a curiosity to a sector with “a total value of £1.2bn in 2018”, according to a recent article on the BQ (Business Quarter) website.
The report refers to a Catering.com survey which revealed that 24% of British consumers are now purchasing from a street food stall at least once a month.
Once of the conclusions drawn is that the appeal of such outlets is apparently not only cost-driven.
“Half of consumers (48%) say they now prioritise ‘authentic experiences’ when they dine out, and when it comes to the perceived authenticity of the cuisine, street food reigns supreme.”
Why hand washing facilities are vital to any street food business
“A separate hand washing facility must be provided. It must have hot and cold (or appropriately mixed running water). Alcohol gels are not acceptable on their own but can be used in addition to a hand washing system.”
