Mobile Catering - Park up at the A1 somewhere ? Wait for Police to Arrest Me
Hello there mate, it’s a really nice story, and I’ve been looking into this for a few days now. I’ve moved up from London and staying in the north east where work is harder and I’ve heard that you can make a reasonable living with the burger van.
I really don't mind spending the cash to buy a nice van, maybe about £5.000.
However I don't know what to do or where to start. Do I just turn up at a B&Q and wait till they kick me off, or park up at the A1 somewhere and wait for police to arrest me.
I understand all about the certificate, but it’s the pitch thing I don’t understand.
If I find a nice spot drive around say 2-3 mile radius and see that no one else is trading. Say I start trading would I get fined or would the police get involved.
I mean if you can stop anywhere you like and trade why can’t people just park up near or pretty much at town centres where you would probably serve hundreds of customers.
I’ve asked this question to other burger van people all they say is you can’t stop there.
Because it’s too close to a built up place, anyhow i hope you can shed some light on to this for me thank you very much.
