Vintage vehicle coffee conversions
In a time when you need to stand out and give your brand a point of difference, don’t look any further than a vintage food truck. The joy of serving inside when the weather is chilly and the flexibility to simply close the hatch and drive away, fully self contained at the end of each day make it ideal for the corporate event market or street vending.
