Street food vehicle design & conversion

An alternative to the brick-and-mortar presence, being able to get on the road in a street food trailer or vehicle is a great way to increase visibility of your brand or restaurant - all while engaging directly with your customers.

 

Whether you’re future-proofing your brand or restaurant business due to the pandemic or just starting out on your own food business journey, the question is: how can you create a custom branded street food van from scratch?

 

If you’re getting started with mobile street food vehicle design and conversion, it can seem like there's a long list of things to do before you can get on the road. That’s where Raccoon’s street food van conversion services come in.

How We Can Help

At Raccoon, we have all the resources you need to get started with a street food trailer or vehicle. Simply share your vision with us, and we’ll make it a reality - from all the interior metalwork to stand-out brand graphics.

 

We can source, design and convert your food or drinks van to get you up and running as quickly as possible. To avoid delays and transportation costs, all branding, electrical and mechanical work is carried out at our Kent production site.

Our Food Vehicle Design Experience

Our team has over 10 years’ experience in vehicle brand design and conversion. We work with brands, restaurants and independent businesses to create street food trailers and trucks that meet all of the health and safety and venue regulations.

 

If you have a vehicle already, that’s great! Our street food vehicle designers and mechanics can produce concept designs for the van inside and out (including interior metalwork and branded graphics) and can consult on suitability for catering and driving.

 

We can also source vehicles from our extensive network of contacts in the UK and abroad. So, if you’re looking for something a little unusual – let us know!

Enforcing Social Distancing

As the country emerges from Lockdown, we appreciate that a number of safety protocols will need to be in place for brand activity taking place.

 

In order to ensure that your plans are Covid-safe, we can help incorporate branded social distancing signage and floor markings into your stall, stand or pop-up, as well as queue barriers and sanitisation stations.

 

Discuss your ideas with our team today and we’ll advise on how you can incorporate social distancing features into your plan.
