The Ultimate Guide on How To Build Coffee Trucks and Espresso Carts

Corporate Slave...

I was working 70 hour work weeks, busting my ass to make someone else rich. No weekends. Always missed evening dinners. I could never make plans because work was always in the way. I was always making excuses to my wife and my life on why I couldn't do something. I just wasn't happy...

Finds Freedom...

Enter the Coffee Truck. I bought a 1974 Vintage Scamp Trailer on Craigslist and began the build out process. I spent 2 months gutting the trailer and rebuilding it to my city's permit specification. In the process, I learned so much about coffee, trailers, restaurants and the food truck industry. But my education was costly. Over $4,000 in mistakes...

Fueling Passion...

My coffee truck journey has been an amazing and rewarding journey. I work part time hours and make a full time salary. I have the weekends that I want off.

Now that I know how to do it, I want to pass it on so you know how to do it too!
