Coffee from horseboxes is a new phenomenon of living with lockdown. Given the surge in demand for coffee machines going into horseboxes there is apparently plenty of demand from the public to support these local entrepreneurs that see and seize their opportunity. For those with existing businesses and premises that may be operating at reduced capacity or are currently closed, there is a great opportunity to adapt the offering and increase revenue into the business.
Coffee is a great ‘horsebox’ product because it’s easy to handle, low preparation, attractive margin and customers don’t necessarily need to take a seat or table. For existing businesses with reputation, power, water, refrigeration all close to hand an adaptation of the business model should be reasonably straight forward. Whether it’s moving an existing coffee machine and running it off a pumped water bottle system or putting in a smaller 1 or 2 group machines like the Gaggia Ruby, there are plenty of options that can boost your revenues; who knows it might become a permanent feature of your business once lockdown eases!
It’s worth checking out to see if your business qualifies for an ‘outdoor dining grant’ which is being administered through Failte Ireland to help businesses adjust to the new operating environment.
