The Pizza Trolley Is for Sale
I was recently contacted by Michael about The Pizza Trolley.
Michael purchased the trolley and retrofitted it to sell pizza. And it turned out beautiful!
Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, he needs to sell it…And once I saw this baby, I had a lot of questions myself….
Albert: Where did you purchase your mobile pizza oven?
Michael: We purchased the Trolley thru a trolley broker located in Colorado. The Trolley was used in a park in Arkansas for transporting their visitors. We had it shipped to us in FL. We are in construction, so we did the complete retrofit. I have attached an information sheet on all the work we have performed. Also, this link is to our drop box with photos of inside and out.
Albert: What type of oven do you have?
Michael: We have a Mugnaini 120 purchased directly from them.
Albert: What is your asking price for your mobile pizza oven?
Michael: Asking $129,000, but will listen to reasonable offers. We have actual cost of slightly over $130,000 into it with all the work, equipment, etc.
Albert: You want me to put the word out that your pizza business is for sale?
Michael: Certainly I would welcome that. We have not been in business long enough to establish strong Good Will for a business sale, but the reception we received in the short time we were in service is truly a great sign. We were very proud that we offered personal sized, made to order pizzas of very high quality. With the speed with which the oven bakes, we were well ahead of any other food truck at truck festivals and events because we could service our customers much quicker. We use a 3 ½ oz ball, makes 7” pizza. Use 00 flour, San Marzano tomatoes, imported olive oil. We had not yet gotten to point of making our own mozzarella and burata but it was in our sights to do so.
Albert: Would you be willing to train the new owner?
Michael: I would be happy to do so. And, I think a smart buyer would want that, unless they were to go to one of the very noted Masters of Pizza for training.
Albert: I also have a few tried and true suggestions, if you want to hear them…
Michael: Absolutely I would be interested in hearing them. Trolley is way too costly to leave parked in garage. I need to find a happy owner.
Albert: Michael, one of the best ways to promote anything is through video.
I was so excited about the Pizza Trolley, I had to make a video.
