usually, standard size, unless you selling food which needs more than standard stall space. a deposit of 2 to 3 month's rental is required. to consider electricity, gas, water bills. etc.

Hi there,
I would like to know why you want know anyone own a food stall in a food court.:think:
Setting a food stall is not a easy thing to do.
First the food must be nice to eat and cheap,affordable.if not the owner of the food stall will kiss his/her food stall bye bye.

Pricing will depend on location. Places like Haig Road or Geylang can easily cost 1.5k to 2k a month.

Yup. Rental price will depend on location. I ever had a small chat with the owner of a stall selling noodles & rice in Suntec City and he told me that teh rental for his stall cost more than $10K per month. Yes, it's more than $10K per month. :eek: :sweat:

Most food stalls, esp those in foodcourt are very small. Prob 6m*6m? not very sure but prob not much bigger than that. As for rental, as mentioned, prob between 1k-10k or even more. It depends on size (some use 1/2 the stall only), timing (some sell in day and switch owner for nite like morning sell bee hoon, nite sell satay) and location.

some organisations haf a 2 way billing system...

its either a certain amount of rental fee... or 20%(more or less is around this percentage) of ur total income, WHICH EVER IS MORE.

thus, either way they make $$.

the more u make, the happier they are, of cos.

u gotta take into consideration that u'll be spending some 'washing dishes n maintenance fees' which might range from S$200 to maybe S$400 thereabouts. of cos, gas n electricity...


and one more thing to note..

some organisations insist that u sign up for their '1+1 package deal' or something like tat. they will want u to take up at least 2 stalls, made up of, if u're lucky, 2 prime locations OR 1 prime and the other not-so-prime location.




in the past, the MOST EXPENSIVE stalls(for rental) in foodcourts are, surprise surprise, BUGIS JUNCTION. it's around S$20k+- a month. no kidding.



i did not keep up to date the stall rental pricing nowadays as my area of work moved away from foodcourt to restaurants...

Looks like being a hawker is a lucrative business. Too bad it is at the mercy of landlords, so they could have easily earned their way to riches through hard work. Reminds me of taxi drivers and their crippling rents.

you think hawkering itself is a lucrative business?

yes, if you have something good to sell.

i've got a good friend who sells chicken rice, he sell a 120 chickens a day. although rental may not be cheap, its certainly lucrative!

your friend is one out of the thousands who are hawkers. citing one successful case does not make the rest the same. perhaps, you could look at yr friend cost structure and find out how much he makes(net) from each chicken sold.
