An ambitious couple have converted a tuk-tuk into a mobile coffee shop in Greenwich.

Transport for London (TfL) has been giving small businesses the opportunity to trade at different bus and train stations across London.

Café Bueno is situated at North Greenwich bus station and run by Sean O’Riordan and Patricia Arnone.

The two set up their business using the money they had saved for their first property to buy a tuk-tuk and convert it into a travelling coffee shop.

Sean said: “We love selling our coffee at North Greenwich and meeting new customers; Londoners like to support the small guys.

"When we started our business, we just worked at weekend events, but our coffee was becoming so popular that I gave up my day job and used StreetDots to start selling it in the week.”

The project launched by TfL enables customers to buy street food and coffee and will later offer them the opportunity to purchase gifts, flowers, and grab-and-go fresh produce from mobile retailers.

Pitches or ‘dots’ are open at several locations, including North Greenwich and Hammersmith and the partnership aims to liberate traders from the hassle involved in finding a pitch, while introducing customers to new brands.

Traders use a smartphone app to choose a ‘dot’ for a few hours at a time. For example, a coffee truck might book a morning slot outside of a Tube station during peak commuting hours.

In turn, customers passing the same ‘dot’ regularly get the chance to discover new businesses and products each day.

Graeme Craig, Director of Commercial Development at TfL, said: “More than 90 per cent of our tenants are small or independent businesses. Working with StreetDots, we will be giving more people the opportunity to try out their new business ideas in a simple and cost-effective way at locations across London.

"It is another great example of how we are supporting small businesses alongside generating vital revenue to reinvest in the transport network.”
