Not A Lot Of Dough….

It’s the side of the street food business that the trend-analysts and colour feature writers don’t bother to tell you about — it’s hard work, and not everybody makes it out the other side.

We’re often sent details of ‘thriving’ businesses in search of new owners, but this one felt like it had more potential than most. Piu Pizza was founded in March 2011, but transformed from a trailer and marquee/tent arrangement to a LandRover Defender arrangement in December. The price of £25,000 (ono) covers everything the new owner will need to start trading, including the following:

• Converted 1988 classic Landrover Defender mileage:145,000 incorporating ‘kitchen’, fold out work surface and
• Bernito commercial pizza oven (wood fired only) with full suspension system and built in chimney
• The Landrover has recently undergone extensive chassis welding; wax oil and strip down. In good condition throughout. Daihatsu 2.8l TD engine (upgrade from manufacturers own) Tax until June 2013 and MOT until March 2013
