It’s awesome when you come across a little business that you think is a great idea, but even better when it has a brilliant story behind it.
Trucked Up is a venture which sees three friends hiring indoor and outdoor bars to events up and down the country. And they’re doing their bit for charity in the process!
This is another business I came across in Lockdown, when I saw that there were cocktail deliveries happening around the Midlands. Trucked Up had put together an excellent menu and were offering to drop their drinks on doorsteps around Hereford. Distanced Daiquiri or Pornstar Quarantini, anyone?!
They were also at local venues with their van selling hot drinks too - I think I speak for us all when I say god bless the pop-up coffee shops which gave us our caffeine hit during this difficult time.
Trucked Up have three different services that they offer:
Firstly there is the indoor bar; a lovely unit with a rustic feel which can be decorated and adapted to fit right in at your venue.
Secondly there is the mobile bar unit, AKA the Neighh Bar Hood; a cleverly converted horse box which is now home to cocktail shakers, spirit measures and plenty of pint glasses! Another modern yet wonderfully characterful option for your events. And finally there is the Coffee Traveller; a van with a very retro feel that serves up good quality hot drinks and supports the best brands.

You see, the guys from Trucked Up are all veterans. And having served in the military, they are keen to support brands and charities which offer help to other servicemen and women. The beans they serve are veteran-owned brands such as Warrior and Tactical coffee, and a percentage of every sale from the Coffee Traveller is donated to All Call Signs - a charity that supports those with PTSD and creates a community amongst veterans which offers constant online support. We are here for this!
So whether you need some fizz at your reception, a fully-manned cocktail bar, or a quirky coffee pop-up, get in touch! You can find them on Facebook, Instagram and at their website.
