Markets and street trading

City centre trading stalls for young people and new enterprises

Coventry Markets and Street Trading Services, part of Coventry City Council, are about to launch a range of flexible and supported opportunities for young people, local craft people and people wishing to go into business for the first time.

The opportunities are well thought out, structured enterprises that come with the wealth of experience from a Markets team eager to encourage, back and mentor people wishing to take the first steps in becoming sole traders.

Initial discussions are particularly invited from young people who may be eligible for start-up grants from the likes of the Princess Trust or Back to Work schemes, individuals wanting to get back into work or follow a change of career and Craftspeople looking to turn their hobby into a small business. The opportunities provide an easy to understand business platform allowing new traders to concentrate on making a go of their exciting venture.

The bright colourful and interesting units have been specifically sourced to provide an eye-catching basis to run your business from. These vintage units refurbished to a very high standard ensure your enterprise really stands out from the crowd and offers the flexibility and versatility of street trading with a secure location for stock storage and overnight security for the food units. 

Street food and general retailing

With the opportunity to trade for 6 days 8am to 4.30pm at a fixed yearly rent of £8000 (including VAT) the pedalstall units work out over the year at just £26 per day including secure overnight storage and stock cage. ( Business Rates not included, but currently rates are subject to 100% relief on your first small business). A £500 deposit is required on the Pedalstall.

We are looking for sole traders wishing to trade in one product units such as high quality hotdogs, gourmet burgers, candy floss, ice-cream tubs, handmade pastries, locally sourced pies, pizza slices, coffee, fruit juices, confectionery and interesting general retail

For more information pop into the market office for a friendly chat. We will explain all about how to take the first steps in successful business, with realistic expectations and an idea of the commitment and the rewards available.
