FOR SALE – 2 ready made businesses in one!

It is with great sadness that we have to sell our fantastic Roberto’s Prosecco, Birra and Gelato Van due to personal reasons.

Roberto’s is a fully functioning 2016 Piaggio Ape TM (the bigger version – which are rare! Most Prosecco /Coffee vans you see are the smaller version called the Piaggio Ape 50).

It has been lovingly designed and converted with dual purpose. On one side is a bar with 2 taps to serve refreshing chilled Prosecco or Birra. On the other side 2 top opening freezers to serve handcrafted Italian Gelato.

For the bar side there are 2 taps serving from a keg which enables speed with pouring and eliminates lots of bottle wastage. Each keg serves approx 160 glasses of Prosecco, avoiding those achy wrists with having to open the equivalent of almost 27 bottles.

Fully fitted with a cooling system, there are two taps, allowing you to pour fizz from each with speed or you can opt to pop a beer or cider or even cocktail or alternative wine option on the other tap. We have set this system up so that the cooling system is hidden in a rear compartment as we wanted a Premium look to the serving area. We can show the purchaser exactly how everything works. The back of the serving area has integrated lighting – which looks great when using at night!

For the Gelato side there are 2 freezers which can be individually temperature set. They will each hold 3 different flavours of Gelato / Ice Cream (we can provide details of a local Gelato supplier if needs be).

Please note that this van is a running vehicle with a 218cc petrol 4 speed engine – most Piaggio Apes do not run, this is a 2016 vehicle with low mileage. It has only ever been driven to and from local events (you get some great looks on the road!).

It also comes with a hand built Freestanding bar area and lots of decorative items etc.

Roberto’s has a dedicated Facebook page with over 1,400 followers, Instagram page with over 1,000 followers, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, Add to Events account, and a dedicated email address.

There are two seats in the front and the vehicle is left hand drive despite being manufactured and registered in the UK, this has never been out of the UK. For ease for longer distances, the van can easily be towed as well as driven.

This has been an amazing business and is set up and ready to go for someone who loves being at festivals and events. It is currently in Hull in East Yorkshire but could quite easily be moved elsewhere in the country.

Roberto’s has been incredible for weddings, birthdays, food fairs, festivals, product launches, networking events and has lots more scope. It is perfect for socially distanced events.

There are some booked events already in the calendar for 2021 in so if Roberto’s is staying in the area we can provide details of the bookings.

We will be happy to provide advice on things like licensing, public liability insurance, van insurance, maintenance, marketing materials etc.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact me.
