Soooooo… the idea of a coffee truck came up one day when I (Richard) was in a rural area and early for an appointment waiting very impatiently. While waiting, I googled coffee shops hoping that something was close to help me kill time. Unbelievably, there was nothing! That evening when I got home, I knew that this was something I had to discuss with my wife Annette. She was excited about the idea as she loves coffee and was looking for a career change from the aviation industry anyway.
Just to add to the story, we were in the final phases of getting ready to build our house, complicating the whole situation even more. After discussing the idea with our two daughters who are in university, they agreed that this was something that needed to happen and gave us the thumbs up to go for it! Over the next couple of days, we began researching for competitors and made the final decision to put the house build on hold and create an interesting future for our family. The rest is a plan in action. We found the vehicle of choice and the fabricators to build our dream coffee truck (Brothers Fabrication) who are an amazing bunch of guys!
