Conceived in 2011, Sally & Mark, the previous owners, created Van Chaud in 2012.
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 workhorse, into something the Parisian men and women who originally built her would be proud of, and to have a little fun on the way…
…and they did it!
Today Van Chaud is now getting itself ready in North Yorkshire with her new owners, Jen, Andy, Issy and Lucy for new adventures in 2021. We are taking bookings for corporate events and private events for late spring/Summer for 2021 and hopefully will be up and running more locally as soon as Boris Permits!
All our quotes are bespoke to your requirements, so for information on pricing drop us a line. Whether you’re 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, a small selection of alcohol , crepes, soft drinks, biscuits, and cakes. We are very flexible, and usually, our offerings are made in house or very local.
With our camper and trailer, we can easily travel nationally and internationally as Van Chaud has been to Paris in June 2017!
For your peace of mind (and ours!), Van Chaud will have a 5* Food hygiene rating, complies fully with LPG, Mains Electrical and PAT legislation for trading. Our Fracino coffee machine is serviced annually by Fracino, and you are covered by our full Public & Products Liability insurance (£5m). We regularly review our fire safety and risk assessment plans for each event. We carry copies of all of these documents in Van Chaud for inspection by you, your clients and all UK authorities.
