Inverness teenager Hannah Munro has launched a business expansion – going from a trike to a truck.
The 18-year-old, who is an admirer of the local food scene, started her business The Treat Trike about a year ago.
It consisted of a three-wheeled bicycle with a counter and umbrella, and sold a selection of pancakes and waffles to hungry customers.
But over the past six months, the entrepreneur has expanded the business by replacing his popular trike with a street food trailer, now known as The Treat Truck.
From tricycle to truck
The Treat Trike was undeniably popular among the local community.
Hannah said: “With the success of The Treat Trike, I decided to expand my street food business.
“And I recently had the good fortune to be able to purchase a silver airstream-style trailer.”
This trailer – 12.5ft x 7.2ft x 8ft – allowed Hannah to serve a wider variety of dishes and gave her the flexibility to attend many different events.
The Treat Truck opened its hatch at the Highland Food and Drink Trail, on Ness Walk in Inverness, for the first time last weekend.
Alongside her role as head of The Treat Truck, Hannah has also worked for a small local bakery which has been producing a wide variety of cakes for local cafes since she left school.
She runs her own home baking business in which she also produces party cakes and cupcakes.
Haggis and Pepper Baked Potatoes
The trailer was purchased new and only needed fitting out.
Next, it was time for Hannah to whip up a mouth-watering menu.
Baked potatoes stuffed with chili, tuna and sweetcorn or chicken and bacon – served with salad and coleslaw – are among the savory options, along with original and loaded nachos.
The original nachos contain jalapenos, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, and queso sauce, while the loaded nachos contain chili, queso sauce, and sour cream.
As for the sweet tooth, pancake toppings include everything from marshmallows, whipped cream, cookie crumbs and banana slices to milk chocolate sauce, cinnamon sugar, Biscoff sauce and sugar cane. lemon.
Hannah said: ‘If you are a tourist in the area I would recommend a baked tattie with haggis and peppercorn sauce as it is a very Scottish dish.
“My loaded nachos are also proving very popular.
“If you fancy something sweet, our Biscoff pancakes are very delicious.
She added: ‘I have already applied for my street trader’s license and will be appearing in many places in and around Inverness very soon.
Hannah currently only trades a few weekends per month. For all updates, visit The Treat Truck on Facebook.
