Small Mobile Snack Van - How To Get Started

by c.neil
(scotland)

Hi in U.K and wish to set up a vegetarian snack van/bar something i can tow.I dont know anything about this but have great cooking skills ..most of what I would like to sell would be made the day before,but i imagine i will cook on site also.

I would also provide hot food and drinks.
What do i need to make this happen apart from snack van?

Are there health and safety certificates,catering certificates to get and what about insurance.

I hope you can use your expertise to shed some light on this.

Many thanks

Colin neil

Basics To Get Started In Mobile Catering
by: David

Hi Colin,

The first thing you will need to do is to find a pitch to trade from, get your food and hygiene certificate(take a course), catering liability and trailer/van insurance. From here you can purchase stock and set your menu and your prices.

This is it in a nutshell; it will take a lot of work and commitment to get your business up and running, but no more so than any other start up business.
Best of luck
