From April 1st, 2017, the MINI Convertible can be fitted with the new John Cooker Works package and turned into a mobile street vendor.
The solid-oak food sales and preparation surface features an induction cooker with integrated fume hood. The vehicle’s 160-215 litres of luggage space stores the required cooling technology, whilst a high-voltage Natural Food Nanotechnology (NFN) battery ensures power supply and is charged by the car’s standard brake energy regeneration system while driving. Food waste is further utilised by the NFN battery system to sustainably power the unique vehicle.
The solid-wood surface, made from sustainably grown oak in Cornwall, folds to fit the contours of the interior when the roof is down and serves as a stable storage for food and beverages in spite of the lightweight construction technology used. The package meets all food regulation requirements and can be used for hot and cold dishes alike.
Customers selecting this new package benefit from a highly flexible food sales vehicle, with a menu of applications which include selling sushi, ice cream or fresh juices.
Only the driver’s seat needs to be folded down in order to install the MINI John Cooker Works package. This creates an amazing amount of space under the solid-oak surface which can be used for storing ingredients and cooking utensils. Should the weather suddenly turn, the convertible roof can be closed in only 18 seconds with the food surface in place.
Potential customers could include start-ups looking to prepare their culinary masterpieces directly in front of their customers, or kiosk operators who need a spacious food presentation area. The MINI Convertible with John Cooker Works Package offers countless opportunities for street food businesses.
