    Setting up my own Mobile food van round 13th Feb 09 at 5:32 PM
    Good evening all,

    My first ever post so please be kind. Hopefully its in the right section.

    I have been thinking of starting up my own mobile sandwich/snack van round. You may recognise the types - small van with a silver box on the back and a real jazzy horn, Goes around industrial estates and offices selling sandwiches, sausage rolls, crisps, sweets etc etc.

    I am not sure of how to go about it and in what order. I understand that i will need to buy one of these vehicles, get insurance (vehicle and public liability??) Some sort of cash and carry (how do i become a member) to get the stock etc etc.

    What sort of money should i expect to pay for a clean van? Do i need to get permission to go to certain places?

    Would anyone be kind enough to offer their valuable advice to me.

    Many thanks in advance.
