A young entrepreneur who turned an old livestock trailer into a food bar is celebrating two years in business.
Charlotte Warren,29, bought an old cattle trailer, and with the help of her partner Harry Sheppard, transformed the trailer into The Warren – an eye-catching food hut, which is based at the revamped Five Valleys Shopping Centre.
“I was the first trader in the market,” revealed Charlotte. “Unfortunately due Covid, we didn’t get a chance to celebrate our first year. So I’m proud to still be here and not only to have completed two years in business, but to have survived the pandemic. All of our customers have kept us going and we are forever grateful.”
Charlotte boasts a down-to-earth mantra when it comes to welcoming people to The Warren, she said: “The idea is to create affordable food for the salt of the earth people. I pride myself on providing great quality food and drink at a price that makes you a regular.
“I have chosen sustainable suppliers which run in line with my ethical views. We are well known for our great coffee which is from Clifton Coffee who pay their farmers well and maintain great relationships with them.”
Charlotte’s success has also seen her staff grow to five.
With indoor service returned, Charlotte is bringing back her popular quiches.
She added: “We now have some seating back and look forward to bringing back our quiches this summer. The rest of the menu is packed with yummy lunches.”
