Mall kiosks and carts

Mall kiosks and carts can be excellent testing grounds for products and for generating interest in a product or service.

The appeal of kiosks and carts is that they are relatively easy to set up, low maintenance, highly accessible to a very targeted buying audience, and are less expensive than opening up a retail storefront.  The possibilities are endless, but here are some mall kiosk ideas: 

Fast Food and Edible Products

The most popular products for these types of kiosks and carts are familiar staples: popcorn, peanuts, ice cream, hot dogs, pretzels, and gourmet donuts or coffee. With the fresh aroma of the tasty treats wafting through high-traffic areas, customers have a hard time walking past your kiosk without stopping for a treat. 

Accessories and Apparel

The beauty of these kiosks is that customers can browse a catchy collection of jewelry, scarves, handbags or even customized orders that involve silk screening or airbrushing on T-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, and just about every other kind of clothing.

Gift Items

If you have a unique type of gift, handicraft, or specialty item, a kiosk is a great way to present these items by themselves, instead of having customers miss them as part of a larger, in-store display.


Sunglasses and other types of ornamental eyewear are almost universally-loved products that do well in a kiosk or cart.


Cell phones, phone accessories, and other types of electronics are right at home displayed in a high-traffic area.
