Put any business on wheels and you’ve got our attention. When one think’s of a typical mobile business, usually a food truck comes to mind. While we love our food truck scene here in WNY, what you may not know, is there are a bunch of other hidden gem mobile businesses offering super cool services outside of food.
These business owners have taken everything from flower shops and photo booths to bar drinks and bar games on the road. You can find all of these mobile businesses at markets and festivals across WNY, and if you’re really trying to impress a crowd, some of them can even be rented for your own private events!
Here’s 10 of the most unique mobile businesses in WNY:
