Hi, my husband and I have wanted to start a mobile coffee van business for some years now and finally took the plunge in 2017 but due to a lengthy local council approval process, its taken nearly a year to get approval for a specific site licence. We just received notification yesterday we've got it and it will all start in April now the fun really begins. We're no real experience just realised the specific site has great potential as its in a local village in Co Down with great tourism etc. and hopefully an untapped market for mobile coffee/teas (or so we hope lol). Anyway, I'm looking any advice about set up now that we've got the location set, particularly around coffee machines that won't cost a fortune for our first year to see if its going to work or not and also good wholesalers to buy coffee beans. Any advice/tips will be gratefully accepted thanks in advance.
Hello all, I'm currently looking to start up a mobile coffee cart and I'm doing a quick and dirty P+L before I commit myself to anything. I've read through the forums and I know a few of you are operating these, and I must say that style wise they'd be my preference! So, I was wondering what your operating costs roughly per month are, for things like fuel, gas and maintenance. And I've read more about many people towing their apes to their pitch but, as my desired location would be about a mile on flat ground from my parking locker would it be feasible to drive that distance with a full tank of water or is it pushing it? And finally, how well do the Apes start in wet/cold weather? Are there any major downsides to these opposed to some of the larger coffee van conversions? Many thanks!
