  4. I’ve never made a cup of coffee in my life! Can I still buy a Coffee Van?
    Yes you can! Whilst your brand new van is being built, you will be taken through an extensive barista training course. So by the time your vehicle is ready, you will be comfortable and confident behind the coffee machine, making beautiful and consistent coffees every time!

  5. I don’t understand how I will exactly make money other than weekend events. Will I receive support on how to generate sales during the week?
    Your van can make an excellent weekly income by creativing a regular ‘run’, visiting industrial estates and business parks, serving coffee and food to employees. As a client of Custom Coffee Vans, you will receive operating manuals to educate you on how to effectively operate the van. And if you would like some extra training, we can accompany you (for a fee) at the beginning of your ‘run’ to give you personalised support and ‘on the job’ training! This will boost your confidence when you begin your new business, and most importantly, will add more dollars to your profits!

  6. What sort of Insurance will I need if I buy a van?
    Its very simple… Custom Coffee Vans will have our Insurance Broker call you to arrange a tailored ‘Mobile Coffee Van’ business insurance package. Not only will your vehicle be insured (and its contents), but you will also be covered for business insurance as well! In addition, you will receive 10 million dollars in public liability insurance. The costs for this vary state-to-state, but it’s a competitive price. You can also choose to have extras cover.

  7. Once I buy the van, how will I know where to find suppliers for my coffee, cups, lids, etc?
    Not to worry! We will supply you with a complete list of recommended suppliers. However, we will only suggest these suppliers and DO NOT force or demand that you purchase from them. As your own business owner, you are free to choose whomever you like to be your suppliers. We are simply there to offer support and guidance along the way!

  8. I know what I want to call my business, but I have no idea what logo or colours I want to incorporate. Can you help with that?
    Yes we can! At Custom Coffee Vans, we use a great team of designers whom you will be able to work with in order to create your perfect logo and colour scheme.

  9. I’ve shopped around and your business offers (by far!) the cheapest Mobile Coffee Van on the market. Why is this?Simple… we want every single client of Custom Coffee Vans to maximise their earning potential! Think of it this way, it doesn’t matter if you spend $49,000.00 on a van or $130,000.00 on a van, if both vans go to the same event and have the same customers, who do you think will make more money?
    THEY WILL BOTH MAKE THE SAME AMOUNT!! So why would you pay $130,000.00 for a Coffee Van that will bring in the same income as a van costing $49,000.00? If the more expensive van makes 200 coffees a day, so will the cheaper van! And guess what… the cheaper van will run just as well, and look just as stylish!So for dollar for dollar return, Custom Coffee Vans believes that people seeking to enter the Mobile Café market should save on their investment at the BEGINNING, and maximise their profits!! It makes financial sense!

  10. I’ve never owned my own business before and even if I buy a Coffee Van, I don’t know where to start. In terms of  getting an accountant, registering the business, getting insurance and other things, I’m totally lost. What will Custom Coffee Vans do to help me and make the whole experience easier?
    We want you to be a success! Custom Coffee Vans understands that purchasing a new business can be a nervous and stressful time for people. For this reason, we endeavour to make the whole process as smooth as possible. Whilst the van is being built, we can organise your business registration, accounting, insurance (and everything else!) for you if you wish. Some clients prefer to handle these things themselves (which is fine), but if you would like support and assistance, we are glad to help in any way we can.

  11. Do I need any special permits with my local council?
    Once your Coffee Van is finished and ready to go, Custom Coffee Vans will arrange for the van to be inspected by the Food and Health Department of your local council. All of the vans we build are approved to meet all food and health standards, so you do not need to worry about obtaining approval.

  12. How long will it take for my van to be totally ready?
    Generally 4 to 5 weeks. It can be a quicker process, however it depends on how many other vans our trained contractors are building at the time.

  13. I’ve looked at some Franchises and I’ve noticed that there are Territories for drivers. I would like to operate in more than one area, is this possible?
    We don’t believe in territories and we definitely do not want to restrict our clients in any way, shape or form! You are entitled to operate your business in any suburb you wish! Why would we restrict you from working where there is money to be made? You are a free and independent business, and we will support you wherever you choose to operate.

  14. Some of your competitors require their van drivers to purchase products off certain suppliers. Can I choose what I sell and who I source it from?
    Absolutely! You are your own boss, and its your decision! If you like, we can certainly recommend certain suppliers, but it up to you who you purchase from, what you decide to sell, and what your prices are!
