The Versatility of the Kiosk


Kiosks, coffee carts, catering trolleys, whatever you want to call them, they are as versatile in name as they are in use. Designed to be used in a stationary or semi-stationary position, a kiosk is a cost-effective option for a variety of business uses in a range of locations.

Typically used for coffee and tea, kiosks can offer a whole host of food and beverage options. With refrigeration added, cold drinks and milkshakes could be added to the menu. A benchtop warmer could see the service of pies, sausage rolls, quiches, and other bakery items. Conversely, a chilled display cabinet could include sandwiches, cakes, slices and more. Packaged food such as chips and confectionary are also options.

Designed to be fit for purpose, a kiosk can be built to specification for any promotional purpose. Information can be broadcast on a screen, with digital devices, or via brochures and leaflets that can be taken away by the customer. Products can be displayed, interacted with, demonstrated, and showcased. As we’ve discussed in a previous blog, allowing customers to touch and feel a product to see how it can solve a problem is a powerful influence in the decision making process.

Kiosks are a great option for food manufacturers or retailers to offer samples of their products in supermarkets and shopping centres. A small set up that doesn’t take up much space but that is easy to relocate as needed brings the sight, smell, and taste of a product straight to the consumer in a setting they can purchase right away.

Kiosks can be used in a whole host of locations and situations – in shopping centres, supermarkets, trade shows, parks and other outdoor spaces, in a hotel lobby, an office block lobby, a function centre, church, education facilities such as universities, private colleges or TAFEs, at sporting facilities, in airport lounges and so many more. This compact, easily moveable unit can fit in anywhere and designed to suit its surroundings.

Kiosks are lockable so when not open for business, offer safety and security for the stock and equipment that is inside. This avoids having to pack down after every day of trade and relocate items. Simply pack them up, close and lock the doors, and head home.

They can also be built in all shapes and sizes, have outer panels branded, incorporate custom fixtures like light fittings to create a particular look and feel. The sky really is the limit when it comes to these versatile units, all they need is the vision and imagination of their owner. A custom-built kiosk is fit for purpose and cost effective for a variety of business uses.
