When looking to hire a pizza van, there are many things to take into consideration when it comes to the pricing. From travel to expertise there is more that meets the eye than just a pretty van serving one of a kind pizza! 

COST PER PIZZA

First on the list you have the price per pizza. The pricing of this varies from business to business, however with all businesses, this cost will cover everything from dough to tomato sauce through to toppings. Here at The Pizza Post, our iconic tomato sauce is homemade and made fresh for your event; this means that pricing also covers the cost of ingredients & labour for this famous sauce.   

TRAVEL 

Secondly you have travel. At The Pizza Post, being mobile and covering the majority of the south of England, means we come to you. Built into your final price is the cost of the van to travel from Sussex to your event. This includes time, petrol and additions such as toll fees and Ulez charges. Dependant on the size of your event, 2 vans may be needed and so the cost would also cover this. 

THE VAN 

Next is the cost of the van itself and the equipment within it from multiple fridges to an authentic stone oven and more. On top of this, along with delectable pizza you receive an aesthetic van, meaning part of your final cost includes lighting and decoration making your event that bit more show stopping for your guests. More than this, you have the choice of 4 pizzas from our unique menu of 10! 

CHEFS

Just as important as our pizzas, if not more so, is our chefs! When you book any food van for your event, a big part of the price you are paying is for the chefs and their wages but also their expertise, training and experience. 

ADDED EXTRAS

Along with pizzas you have the option of starters and desserts. These range from our delicious orzo pasta salad to our Naples carpese salad and from our famous tiramisu to our eton mess. Adding these to your order will be added in to your final price and trust us when we say your guests will be thankful!

EXAMPLE OF PRICING

Let’s say you had an event and wanted us to cater for 50 people, what would the pricing work out to be? Let’s have a look: 

Price per pizza: £11 

This works out as 50 pizzas X £11 = £550 

Next we add the price of hiring the pizza van =£295

This means the cost of hiring the van for 50 people works out as £550 + £295 = £845

Overall, per person, this works out to be £16.90, which is far cheaper than if you were to book a restaurant, not to mention the experience that you are providing for your guests is far more unique and memorable. 

Ending off, it goes without saying that when booking a food van there is more to take into consideration than is first noticeable. What is a given is that by hiring a pizza van, you are guaranteed to experience an event unlike one you have had before and this often means you are leaving your guests talking about it for weeks on end!
