Mobile Catering Van or Trailer

by tom

I wish to set up a mobile catering business initially just doing the small festivals and shows 5000 ish and do not know if a catering trailer would be better than a food van?

My budget could buy a catering trailer and then maybe rent a van to start with. I am a bit unsure about buying both together as if the van breaks - my business stops.

Online Food and Hygiene Level 2 Course
by: David

I personally can't comment on using NCASS as I have not used any of their service, but other people have recommended them.

If it's just a food and hygiene certificate level 2 that you are after why not try Food and Hygiene Online

Best of luck

Regards
David

Mobile Catering - Choosing a Catering Trailer
by: David

Hi There,

I recommend that you buy a catering trailer over a van as some places don’t accept a catering van on site. This is because of the combination of both LPG and Petrol/Diesel engines. Also you won’t have to worry about paying road tax and a yearly M.O.T.

So to be on the safe site I advise that you either hire or buy a catering trailer. This will ensure that at the very least you won’t be turned away from any possible catering events.

Best of luck
David
