Starting a mobile Gelato business and any suggestions or advise would be great
rI am starting a mobile Gelato business and originally was going to buy a food truck but with the floor height just over 30" I had to switch to a trailer to get the Gelato case low enough to have the customers be able to view the presentation of the case.
I used to own a very successful sports bar in California and wanted to try something out again but don't want a brick and motar building.
I have a 16ft trailer being built from Wells Cargo and just looking for ideas or suggestions.
I have a 4,500 watt remote start Yamaha generator that Wells Cargo will build a ventilated box in the rear of the trailer. I may use a 3k AIMS 24v inverter that has a charger and transfer switch built into it. Will either use a bank of AGM or 6v golf cart batteries (then I'd need to find where to mount them outside) I was gong to run the AC off the generator and also charge the batteries so when the AC is not on I will have some quiet time with no motor running for a few hours. Everything else will run off the batteries.
I plan in using a a tankless water heater.
I don't want the standard concession type windows, I want the open concept look and the windows will be frameless so from several feet away it will just look like two big 6ft windows.
I also will have a 14ft electric full cassette awning that will extend 11ft and maybe if I'm at a place for a few hours put out a few lightweight bistro tables and chairs.
I may also do a conversion on the generator so it can run on propane.
The Gelato is being shipped in from California and they serve the Four Seasons hotels, Google headquarters and a bunch of other big name companies so it will be very good Gelato. I do not want to do any cooking so I may to morning pre-made Panini sandwiches but the Panini press takes 1,000 watts and that cuts into my electricity quite a bit.
Coke is supplying a True Solid glass door fridge and a bunch of POS so the trailer should be decorated pretty good.
Anyways, if anyone has any suggestions or ideas please let me know.
I took a picture of a Humara TV commercial and that was the look I wanted. Picture is below.
