About Us

Heinz Ketchup TV add 2014

Conceived in 2011, Sally & Mark created Van Chaud in 2012 as a Coffee & Crepe van.

And it was all done with the help of some very talented individuals. The concept from the start was to use local companies to sympathetically repair, restore and refurbish this 1969 French work horse,
into something the Parisian men and women who originally built her would be proud of, and to have a little fun on the way….

 
 
 
…I think we did it!
 
All our quotes are bespoke to your requirements, so for information on pricing drop us a line. Whether your looking for a vintage Citroen van as a backdrop for your promotion or advert, or want to offer your client or guests refreshments. We regularly serve hot drinks, crepes, galettes, Staffordshire oatcakes, soft drinks, biscuits, and cakes.
We are very flexible, and usually our offerings are made in house.
 
With our camper and trailer we can easily travel nationally,  and having already taken Van Chaud to Paris in June 2017, so Europe is well within our reach!
