Regional meets international.
Many years of experience and entrepreneurial spirit.
An unknown route.
A bright blue 508 D in Bristol – here comes Murray May's.
A large part of their time was spent on the planning: "Ewan has a lot of experience as a chef in a small kitchen," says Thecla. "When he started thinking about how we would work, this experience was a major help in planning the interior." Every corner and every detail was measured, documented and included in the plans in order to make the equipment fit as precisely as possible during the installation work. But before that could take place, the van which the pair lovingly called "Nessie" was to receive a fresh lick of paint. "Choosing the colour was unimaginably difficult. We changed our minds on several occasions," explains Thecla with a laugh. "We had it painted by a team of very talented people at a paintshop in Yate. They really put their heart into their work. We were amazed by the result."
A resounding success.
"We wanted a vehicle with character, which would suit both us and our food."
Pleased with their creation.
Going new ways.
Thecla and Ewan dared to make the next step – self-employment.
Delicacies from the truck.
Edged with copper, the front bar is a truly attractive feature of the food truck and makes for a great counter.
A new lick of paint for the 508 D.
They found their Mercedes-Benz 508 D, a former vehicle from the Dutch army, on eBay.
What a difference a colour can make.
