The Beet Box

Once we’d decided to take the big step of making our dream a reality and started looking for a wagon (with no prior food truck experience) we were totally overwhelmed – where do you start? Trailer, van, conversion, convert it ourselves? There wasn’t much close by and we even looked as far afield as York, but then we found our little lorry, just up the road in London :)

Already kitted out with a full oven and griddle, fridge and freezers, it was just what we were looking for… slightly bigger than we first imagined, but Perfect Pasta was perfect for us.

With a design plan already in my mind, along with my favourite designer Jennie Lewis of Sunside Studio we hatched a plan. It was a painstakingly slow process of hand peeling all the old vinyl off the van before we then had to sand the whole thing down and paint it our favourite shade of green ‘leprachaun laugh'. Then it was time for the graphics – one of my favourites “everyday we’re brusseling”. 

My brother Josh, owner of The Plank Company Events helped us out with the wooden panelling and we are nearly there… just the cab and we’ll be complete.

Welcome to BeetBox

Hi! We are Matt & Tiff founders of BeetBox in Croyde, North Devon.

Welcome to our blog – we’ll try not to ramble on too much….

I’m Devonian and Matt’s Cornish (some might say a dangerous combination) but I love eating and Matt loves cooking, so together we make a good match!

Our food is vegetarian/vegan but instead of being labelled alternative – we believe healthy eating is the only way to eat – and we want to share with people how delicious healthy can be.

We also love to travel and use our trips as inspiration for the menu – which will change daily according to:
1. What’s in season
2. What we fancy
3. The British weather

Some of my favourite food experiences have been in Asia, and we do like a good curry, but we also like adding some extra magic to them (thats down to Matt) so they’ll always be vegalicious, we love a Malaysian Jackfruit Rendang.

We will always offer Vegan and Gluten Free options from Brekky to burgers and of course scrumptious cakes and drinks.

Based in my hometown Croyde, we’ll be up at Freshwell campsite for most of the summe.
