I want to start a stand on my college campus. Small with the basic drinks done real well. and a few fresh baked goods daily. How much start up would one need to do this? I'm thinking Cart, La Marz. machine, register, and operating costs for 6 months would be around 30G.
I'm looking into a cart also. Your projection could be close if you keep it to the basics. You might check out craigslist.com for used equipment. For new, try coffeecartbiz.com; they are very helpful and have beautiful custom carts that are health dept. approved. I'm thinking of a pretty loaded cart and it looks to be more around $40K and that's not factoring in operating costs. Good luck...let us know how it goes.
