If you have a candy enamel and desired touch of something to finish off tea this night, then there’s a little appropriate news. The self-proclaimed ‘King of Desserts,’ Mr. Tee, is in Patchway.
His van has pitched up at Coniston Road vehicle park, Mr. Tee’s colorful van doesn’t just serve high-quality ice cream but some of the most attractive, mouthwatering cakes money can purchase. Mr. Tee, real call Tee Smith, is a social media sensation serving his ice cream creations to hundreds. Speaking to the Liverpool Echo final year, Mr. Tee talked thru how he came up with the idea to create his now-famous dessert trucks.
He said: “I owned a pizza and kebab takeaway for 10 years, and a person approached me to shop for this commercial enterprise, so I determined it was time for a change. “I’m continually thinking out of doors the field, always been very creative, so I bought my first ice cream van approximately three years ago. “About two years ago, I started out doing Easter egg shells with ice cream. People just went mad for them, then I started arising with this kind of thoughts, and Mr. Tee King of Desserts was born. “As nicely as ice-cream desserts, Tee additionally serves up hot waffles, cakes, and cookies. Tee is married to Sam, who works on the trucks with him.
When Mr. Tee is on the town, there are always long queues; however, fans of the ice cream innovator say it is nicely well worth the wait. He commonly stays around until 10.30 pm, so there is lots of time to get there and get your fill of ice cream and waffles. Besides all the criteria in the decision matrix above, one should also consider the advertising and marketing value of being a “green company” when it comes to customer and client perception because if you have a hybrid, it speaks volumes about your business and beliefs, thus, it could very well add a business to your book. In addition, most US citizens and, therefore, most of your customers care about the environment or have bought into the whole environmental movement.
If they see your company as one with their beliefs, you win, and you have a better chance over the competition if your delivery or service vehicles are hybrid. Still, it’s getting rather hard these days to find a superb choice for a hybrid van, even though there are several available if you do some checking around. Still, there are fewer choices than there once were, even at a time when fuel prices are once again near an all-time high. According to CNN Money Online News (March 1, 2012), there was an article titled; “Hybrid maker Bright Automotive goes bust,” by James O’Toole, which stated; “Hybrid vehicle maker Bright Automotive has announced plans to close, blasting the Department of Energy for failing to finalize a loan that the firm says would have kept it afloat.”
Apparently, the CEO of the company stated that “they were withdrawing their application for a $314 million loan and winding down their operations, as they had been strung along for the past few years as the government insisted on increasingly stringent loan requirements. “The actions — or better said ‘lack of action’ — by your team means hundreds of great manufacturing and technical jobs... and thousands of indirect jobs in Indiana and Michigan will not see the light of day,” the letter said.” This is quite problematic because these are awesome little vans, and if you go to their website, you will see just how state-of-the-art these vans really are. As a former franchisor of automotive service businesses, I would have seriously looked into these vans for our company if I were still running today. They would save on fuel, look cool, and are hybrids and green-friendly, meaning it would attract more business. It’s therefore unfortunate that they will not be available in the future or that the company is cutting production presently. Indeed, I hope you will be able to find a choice for a company work truck or van in your automotive service business and that you will consider some of what I’ve noted here today. Please think about it.
