Since starting our conversion business well over a decade ago, The Big Coffee has seen so many changes to the mobile catering industry, as well as a real boom in café and coffee culture. We’ve been helping our customers to take their businesses mobile for many years now, none more so than this past year, when the entire catering industry (and indeed the world) was turned on its head. 2020 threw its fair share of challenges at our customers, and thankfully we were able to provide solutions.
We are experts in designing and building mobile catering and coffee conversions, and we are also industry leaders in all things mobile retail. We constantly keep up to date with what’s in demand, stocking the latest mobile catering product offerings so that we are guaranteed to have an option to suit your business goals, your brand mission and your budget.
Our Piaggio Ape vans have for many years been the quirky go-to model for mobile coffee carts and beer and prosecco vans, which can be seen zooming around the streets of the UK, Europe and across the globe! To add to this Classic offering, our newest and one of our most adaptable products is our Big Coffee ‘Pod’ which can be used as a mobile coffee or catering trailer or any other mobile business. Our Pods can also be adapted to sit as a stand-alone kiosk, which you can read about (link HERE). The simple, chic Pod design can be re-painted any colour of the rainbow, or you can choose to have a full graphics wrap to show off your unique branding – it’s a totally blank canvas for your brand personality to really pop!
To say that the catering and hospitality industry has been thrown a curve ball in the last 12 months would, of course, be an understatement! The way businesses are able to trade has shifted almost beyond recognition, and maintaining social distance, finding new ways of socialising, exercising and enjoying a meal have become second nature to the general public. The Big Coffee ‘Pod’ is an internal vend trailer, meaning that you and your team can stand inside and remain safe and socially distanced from customers, as well as sheltered from the great British outdoors (although we do ship worldwide, so technically you can shelter anywhere your heart desires)!
In 2021, new start-up and existing businesses alike will need to pivot and adapt in order to thrive. We have been incredibly inspired by the bar and pub businesses we’ve worked with recently, using their unique and quirky ideas to go mobile. Last year we were also happy to have helped several established cafés switch to mobile coffee vans so that they were able to access anywhere and pitch up where needed.
Your Pod will be compact and easy to transport, and can be towed by most family cars – good things come in small packages after all! It’s amazing what you can fit inside to make your business plan a reality. Be it Barista quality coffee, homemade cupcake cafe, traditional sweet shop, Pizza parlour, craft shop or a boutique fashion shop – you can transform one of our pods into any mobile business.
Whatever you want to achieve with your business, we’ve got something to make it happen. Give us a call on 01482 655020 for more information.
