The Season

Tis’ the season to be jolly. Any winter wonderland would not be complete without a crepe van. Although good all year round, crepe vans are an integral part of any winter market, across the UK and throughout Europe too! Germany, France, Spain; the list goes on. Many countries love to experience crepes in their Christmas markets as a winter tradition.


The Taste

Perhaps the most important reason of all is why crepes are so popular in winter – their taste. If they weren’t so tasty they would not be so popular, it is that simple. Loved by both adults and children, their amazing taste is the reason they are so popular.

Crepes without doubt are extremely popular with visitors and locals, whatever city or town you are in. Experiment with flavours and tastes to give the people something different. Leaving a lasting impression on customers is important, especially when you are a mobile catering business. Something to remember you by is what gets you repeat business and booked for private events. Set yourself apart from the other crepes vans and stalls out there.


Crepe Vans Are Highly Mobile

With not much needed to set up your mobile crepe van, you are easily transportable from place to place throughout the winter months. A crepe van is self-sufficient, you’ll have all the basics you need to succeed.


Include Vegan and Gluten Free Options

It is important for catering businesses today, to cater for all dietary requirements. Make sure you have vegan and gluten-free options on your menu. All crepes can be made with gluten-free flour so it could be a good idea to use this to cater for everyone.


What Works Well Alongside Crepes?

The beauty about crepes is they are pretty quick and simple to make. Once you have your perfect recipe down, you won’t require a range of complicated or expensive equipment or lots of space required to make your crepes. This means that you have the opportunity to branch out your business should you wish to.

Churros, for example, work brilliantly alongside crepes. If you wanted to sell another product with your crepes, this would be a good way to go.
