Street food and winter is hardly a match made in heaven; unpredictable weather, the bitter cold, and generally eating outside is not a recipe for a good night out. However, this is the time of the year when festive markets flourish, and consumers brave the elements to enjoy festive street food and drink. Whether it’s flavoured coffee, roasted chestnuts or more exotic luxurious sweet and savoury delights, there really is something out there for everyone.
So, as a consumer wandering around these festive markets, how do you select your street food vendor of choice? It could be the tempting smells wafting from their stand, something truly unique in their catering or perhaps it’s the presence that their pitch presents…
Let’s focus on that last point in a little more detail. As a street food vendor, I want to create a truly unforgettable experience. While the food and drink that I serve is my highest priority, I want the vehicle that I sell it from to have the maximum impact, draw customers in and create an experience for all involved.
The Piaggio Ape (often referred to as a ‘Tuk-Tuk’) is iconic, a truly unique vehicle that is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. With its retro styling and recognisable bodywork, the van evokes memories of a particularly memorable era in Italy. These vehicles are proving to be incredibly popular with a wide range of businesses. The Big Coffee are the UK’s only authorised commercial importer of Piaggio vehicles. By working closely with Piaggio we’re able to offer an official Piaggio warranty along with the very latest stock and range of vehicles.
That said, your choice of vehicle isn’t restricted to just the Piaggio range. Our team of experts at The Big Coffee convert a wide range of vehicles in order to serve street food and drinks. From the popular VW transporter, through to Mini’s, SmartCars and other makes and models of vans and vehicles. We are on-hand to create a bespoke conversion that satisfies everyone’s needs.
