Do you fancy making some cash on a hot summer’s day? With a good location and a pedlars license you can turnover £500 in a few hours selling packaged ice creams and chilled drinks. Surely this ice cream bike business on wheels must be more enjoyable that sitting in an office looking at the sunshine?
These ice cream tricycles are fully custom made to each individual customer’s requirements. I can make your tricycle as unique as you require making your business stand out from the crowd as much as possible. The tricycles can display your own livery and logos incorporating matching product prices advertising boards and branded parasols. Alternatively I can supply freezer graphics based on the classic 1940’s and 50’s “Stop Me and Buy One!” tricycles; even in a crowd these trikes are a real eye-catcher due to their parasols. Vintage is back in fashion so its time to make some serious income with these heritage trikes.
My bespoke tricycles are fully road legal with all wheel braking while the frame is based upon the proven Tamar trike chassis’ which is a delight to ride; unlike ice cream tricycles which steer by a pivot between the rider and freezer unit as these always want to fold in half when riding.
Three types of freezer can be fitted on your trike;
240v freezer – Two lockable sliding glass lids. The freezer needs to be plugged in to the mains when vending, although it can keep the contents chilled for short periods, ie during transportation to a wedding venue, etc. Capacity 190 litres
Eutectic plate freezer – Two lockable solid lids. The eutectic plates in this freezer act like high performance freezer packs. The ice cream stock is loaded into the freezer and is frozen down over night with the integral eutectic plates. In the morning the freezer is unplugged from the 240v mains and the eutectic plates keeps the ice cream frozen for up to 8 hours. This is the best option for mobile venders. Capacity 121 litres
12volt battery freezer- This ultimate option keeps powered up throughout the day. The freezer is plugged in to mains power overnight which both chills the freezer and charges the 12v battery. During the day the freezer runs off the battery to give you up to 14 hours of selling, ideal for summer mornings and relaxed late nights. Capacity 136 litres
Alternatively, if you already have a suitable freezer, just send me the dimensions of your freezer and I can fabricate an ice cream tricycle to carry it.
I can make racks to hold stainless steel Napoli ice cream trays for all of the above freezer units.
Exterior grade weather-proof vinyl graphics can be applied to the freezer. The “Traditional Ice Cream” and “Stop me and buy one” designs can be provided in any text colour and background colour to suit your business image. Custom designs can also be provided. These graphics are laminated after printing for extra abrasion resistance. The price of the graphics is included with the freezer
To maximise your turnover throughout the year, the front of the ice cream trike is modular which enables the freezer to be removed and replaced with other vending units. These units are custom made to your requirements depending on what you wish to sell. Units can be supplied for selling tea & coffee, soup & crusty rolls, mulled wine & mince pies or a foldout market stall table. If you have the idea I can usually make it happen !
