A great mobile cafe service for your event involves the seamless integration of four core components: planning, staffing, equipment, and beverage ingredients. Below is an overview of how we help with each of these components to deliver great service, and tasty cafe beverages and food for your guests!

Detailed Barista Service Planning

A great event starts with great planning! Before committing to our traveling barista services we use a consultative approach to better understand your event vision, objectives, budget, theme, guest count, date and time, location, and any other important requirements. We then work collaboratively with you to build a bespoke pop up cafe or delivery service proposal to align to your needs.

Once your service proposal is confirmed we conduct detailed planning to further tailor our services to your requirements with the aim to support the overall successful execution of your event.

Detailed planning includes:

  • Identifying stakeholders and defining their roles and responsibilities.
  • Defining tasks, schedule, and communication preferences.
  • Building a personalized cafe or delivery menu.
  • Aligning the mobile barista cart service with the order of events / run of show.
  • Selecting the portable barista staff dress for your event coffee shop.
  • Venue floor plans, parking, access, load-in/ out, and requirements for water and electrical.
  • Assessing, identifying, and managing risks (e.g. weather, variance in the number of attendees etc).

Excellent Equipment

Great quality barista rental equipment designed for events is a prerequisite for the best mobile cafe shop. We help to ensure that the type of equipment aligns with your vision and type of the service.

For example:

  • If you have a more formal cafe service where guests are sticking around in the same location than using glassware may be more appropriate than disposable cups.
  • If you want to promote a brand or personalize your service we offer branded options such as: barista food trucks, portable barista carts, and disposable cups.
  • If you have a large number of guests to serve rapidly pre-brewed coffee or tea may be a better solution a la carte cafe beverages.
  • If you have a lower budget we offer a self serve coffee, tea, or hot chocolate station.

The equipment we carry is field tested ensuring high performance and quality to execute a professional barista service.. This helps to make us the premier mobile cafe service in Toronto and Ontario!
