The exciting business opportunity was developed by our client in 2020 who identified there was a gap in the market for good quality Gluten free, Vegetarian and Vegan foods. The business is now being made available for sale due to our client’s decision to concentrate on family.

The unique trailer is one of the few catering vans in the country of this beautiful style, whether it be a muddy field for a festival, a bespoke wedding this is the perfect trailer for the occasion.

As well as the established pitches, our client has been requested to attend festivals and events this year, including Yeovil Air festival, Dorchester Car meet, Taunton Food market and Weston-S-Mare, as well as attending SheppyFest.
