Ladram Bay Holiday Park: The benefits renting a mobile catering, mobile bar or coffee unit
With the focus on outside space there is a real focus on siting pop up retail units to serve people outside and attract passing trade. This is of great importance to holiday resorts and holiday parks, where outside retail units such as Citroen HY Vans, Horseboxes and kiosks are becoming very popular.
Generally these units are very expensive to purchase, and have long lead times associated with conversion and build. Being able to flexibly hire a unit to serve beer, coffee, food and ice-cream is of major benefit as they can be hired for a busy weekend or even the whole summer season.
By hiring a mobile unit from someone like Vantage Point who have over 8 vehicles in their fleet, clients can have the van set up as they wish and don’t incur the cost of having to purchase their own with the van possibly lying idle during the Autumn and Winter periods.
Generally costs start from £45 per day to hire such units. The Citroen HY Vans in particular prove to be a real focal point and attract customers by just the way they look! Recently Ladram Bay Holiday Park in Devon have hired a 1977 Citroen HY Van from Vantage Point (Vantagepoint.wales) who have had it set up to serve take-away coffee, draught beer, snacks and soft drinks. They have hired the retro vehicle for 12 weeks and have made it the focal point of their expansive outside area near the beach!
