FOR SALE Business for sale:- Pop Top Kitchen

Discussion in 'Non Late Bay Classifieds' started by 67westy, Aug 5, 2014.

  1. It's with great sadness that we are putting up for sale the Pop Top Kitchen. The business has been established for just over a year now but a change of circumstances means we can no longer continue running it. The business has gone from strength to strength in the past 12 months and we have established an excellent reputation amongst our clientele at the VW shows we have attended. The quality of the food we offer and the uniqueness of the catering Puck means that bookings our easily gained and we are regularly approached to attend events. We also attend a series of Triathlon events which any new owner could continue with should they wish.

    The puck is a 1976 model that has been converted into a catering van. The interior has been clad in aluminium sheet, stainless steel work surfaces have been installed and the pop top canvas has been replaced with detachable fly screen and PVC for easy cleaning. Also Fixed in the van are 2 sinks, running hot and cold water, a 600mm LPG griddle and LED lighting. The van has been inspected and received the top hygiene rating of 5. The gas safety certificate was issued at the end of July and valid for 12 months from that date. A large amount of equipment, which is everything you need to continue the business, is also included and listed below.

    I am happy to discuss the finances with interested parties, the van has returned a healthy profit at all the events we have attended and offers excellent potential for expansion into other areas such as Weddings, country shows etc. We currently have 3 more events to attend this year and would welcome anyone to visit us at these to see the setup in action. The next event is SkegVegas on the 15th-17th August at Revesby Lincolnshire.

    Pictures of the setup at a recent event are below along with pictures of the food we serve.

    Good luck with the sale, think I was one of your first customers at Skegvegas last year, although it was a free breakfast I won in your prize promotional giveaway :). Very nice it was too.

    All the equipment was bought new with the exception of the hob and sink, these are from the original puck. The Burco was bought in April this year and has been used 3 times so far, the rest of the equipment has only had 7 or 8 uses so is as good as new.
     
  10. We are at SkegVegas this weekend so it's the perfect opportunity to see the setup in action! If you are interested and want the grand tour then just say hello :D
     
  11. Well I can finally post about our reasons for selling the business now. Hannah and I are expecting our first child so wont have the time to dedicate to the business next year. Still sad to be selling it, especially after having an excellent weekend at SkegVegas!
