It was growing demand from markets, festivals and events, and a need for flexibility that led Queensland mobile coffee specialists Flinders Coffee to Bella Manufacturing when they decided to invest in a new mobile coffee van.
But it was the exceptional service and design quality they got from Bella Manufacturing that brought this growing business back a second and third time.
As an educated customer the Flinders team arrived at the Bella studio armed with a range of specific design ideas. It took the expertise of the Bella Manufacturing design team to turn these great looking designs into practical and health and safety compliant mobile coffee vans.
The project brought some unique challenges including the need for all fully custom designed equipment, and a refrigeration unit above the cabin. At the same time two of the mobile catering vehicles needed to be identical so staff could use either without compromising the quality of their service.
The Flinders fleet of two gas-powered Hyundai Hi Loads and a gas-powered Toyota Hilux were each fitted out with a Fracino coffee machine, the only LPG certified coffee machine in Australia and New Zealand.
A gas-powered Bella Manufacturing mobile catering vehicle is supported by a battery pack and inverter system and is a clean, noiseless, standalone alternative to a generator or mains power option. With less impact on the environment, a gas-powered alternative is also cheaper to run.
For Flinders it opened up greater opportunities for when and where they could run their business, giving them the flexibility that was a core part of their brief.
Bella Manufacturing supplied Flinders with a practical versatile fleet that met all of their design and delivery requirements, and they were delighted with the exceptional quality and finish.
