Hi! My name is David Hinton, and I’d like to guide you safely through the entire process of starting a mobile catering business while avoiding costly, start-up mistakes. 

Below are my first 2 beloved catering vehicles which were used for trading

I enjoyed great success with these catering vehicles and it’s that real life working knowledge, experience and success that I share with you in my start up pack.

I believe that a lot of your starting-up questions, fears and doubts will be put to rest through solid information and real trading experiences. Furthermore, you won’t be starting this daunting process on your own, but with a trusted friend by your side; more importantly someone who understands and has been through the same process.

Please remember, I’ve been exactly where you are today and can recall all the feelings that start to rise like finding the courage, doubts of the unknown, getting finances and know-how to get going. All I had was an idea, a burning passion to provide great tasting quality food and the need to earn a liveable income to support the family.  

I quickly found out that you’re going to need a lot more than just an idea and passion to succeed. This is why the full start-up process is covered in my easy to read start up-pack. It contains No hype or exaggerated claims that you will earn huge amounts of money easily because it’s not realistic. What you can expect to find is an accurate and honest personal guide of what it takes, how to plan and reach your first day of trading, because....

"Failing to plan is planning to fail.

Also, I don’t waste precious time by giving you pointless facts or information you can’t use.  Everything in this book is designed to gently push you though the whole start up process. You will find all the advice you need and what it takes to start and run a mobile food business.

More importantly you will also discover if this type of business is for you. Don’t just jump in spending £1’000's of pounds before understanding fully the opportunity and what it really involves. I’ve heard too many stories of people doing just that and losing a lot money.

This easy-to-use book will arm you with the full knowledge you need to succeed! You’ll also discover a range of helpful tips and genuine advice answering major mobile catering questions. Rest assured that all this valuable information comes from my personal trading experiences and other trader’s experiences giving you a great overview.
