Vintage British Milk Float / Mobile Pizza Business For Sale

Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, UK
Asking Price:
£50K - £100K
Net Profit:
Under £50K

Hi. We are selling our 'Pizza Belle' mobile pizza unit, built around a vintage 1964 Elektruk milk float that forms the unit's frontage. The float houses an imported Italian Zanolli stone-deck pizza oven, and is branded up as the 'Pizza Belle', inspired by the famous 1950s bomber, the Memphis Belle, with its iconic styling.

Included in the sale is:

Vintage 1964 milk float (hard to value, but I've seen vintage floats alone on eBay going for £15k)
Transporter trailer
Zanolli Citizen 6 pizza oven (runs off LPG) (worth £3k+VAT new)
2 x branded 3 metre gazebos with all walls and tarpaulin flooring
Steel prep table
Portable steel double sink unit with running hot & cold water (requires mains power, approx. 800W)
Gas and Electric safety certificates
Full set of catering equipment: pizza paddle, ingredients pots, pizza cutters, knives, temperature probe, chopping board, spoons, fire extinguishers, etc.
Full set of risk assessments, Food Safety Management plan etc. all the paperwork you will need to get going and be fully compliant.

This is a ready to go business. You could be trading tomorrow, the only thing you need to buy is your stock!

Because of its unique look, this unit has been invited to trade in the arenas and VIP areas of many of the UK's largest festivals including Download, Wireless, Community, Neighbourhood, Parklife, Rewind, Y Not, Creamfields - too many to remember them all! It is also popular for weddings and corporate events. Event organisers LOVE this unit, and it has opened many doors for us, but we have now moved onto larger units and so we're looking for a new home for the Belle.

One thing to note: this unit has had some use since some of these photos were taken, and the paintwork could do with touching up. We can get this done prior to sale, or agree a discount, whatever works. If you are interested in the float without the catering equipment, we will consider a sensible offer. The float has no batteries and does not run at present, we take it to events on the trailer (included) and simply winch it on and off the trailer. If you want a working float, we have had a quote for new batteries and a full mechanical refurb, so that is an option.

For a beginner to the mobile catering business, we can offer training, advice and help if needed, and contacts for festivals to get you going. This vintage milk float sells itself, and you will find that, as it did for us, it will open doors to the very best events. There is also the to build a great weddings or corporate events business with it.

The Zanolli oven cooks a great pizza, baking a crispy base every time, and because it runs on LPG it is much cheaper to run than an electric pizza oven. And it cooks fast - we have done events with this unit where we have taken more than the asking price in a single weekend! We are happy to show you records, after a viewing, as part of the sale process.
