“Our original design goals were to have a simple, clean feel and look with limited seating inside and a pick up window. This was of course during Covid,” said Richmann. “Then we had several requests from customers that wanted a place to sit, either to work or meet up and enjoy our offerings.

Richmann, who bought the business from his brother-in-law in 2009, said it didn’t really evolve from a hobby into an earnest commercial enterprise until about 2015.

Several of those vehicles remain on the road, including an electric cargo trike for the farmers market and occasional weddings; a larger bike-towed box trailer for pop-ups; and a larger box truck for larger events like concerts. The company also assists wholesale customers in developing mobile operations of their own.

“We have found ourselves helping those interested in the mobile cafe business achieve their goals and dreams,” said Richmann. “We’ve helped counsel entrepreneurs on barista training and business strategy and operations, have supplied them with our coffee, and even have done some build-outs for their mobile cafe.”
