Hi Gary and Wendy,


On behalf of the committee, I want to thank you for coming to PAWS yesterday. It really wouldn't be PAWS without your hot food and ice cream. Thanks also for the donation.


We made a healthy profit from the day, - money to be ploughed back into the park and children's events, and everyone had a good time, which is just as important. I 'm just sorry about the wind!


So thanks again, and if you can please keep free the 10th June 2018 which is the proposed date for next year!


Best wishes

Dorothy June 2017


Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for all your help on Saturday! It was a fantastic day and I am sooooo pleased the sun shone all day for us.

I hope you will be pleased to know the fete so far has raised £12,000 and money is still due to come in so we are really hopefully we are going to smash the £14,000 target. Thank you for providing the ice cream stall and for the £150.00 donation.

Once again, thank you for everything you did and hope you are pleased with the result for the Hospice.

I look forward to seeing you at the next event

"We just wanted to thank you for attending our fun dog show again. You have been for several years now, bringing both the hot food and the ice cream vans,and are always prompt and reliable. The quality of the food remains first class, as does the cleanliness of the vans and the friendliness of your staff. A vegetarian friend was delighted you could supply her with a veggie burger - perhaps something you could advertise more. And thanks also for the generous donation you gave us. We hope you are free to attend our event again next year."

If you are free we will book you for our next event and I promise more than 5 days notice this time!! Thanks again"


Phil Curran, Great Dunmow Triathlon - 14th of September 2014


"We cannot recommend Wendy and Gary's One Stop Vans any higher. We were let down the night before our event by a very unprofessional company and spent the evening trawling websites for an emergency replacement. Wendy was the only person to get back to me that night and she selflessly gave her day off up to save my reputation and step in as my caterer. These people go above and beyond the call of duty to supply a friendly, welcoming and tasty service and we will definitely be using them every time in the future. Thank you Wendy and Gary you are true life savers and lovely people."


Toni & Steve Day, Howdens Joinery Brentwood - 10th of September 2014


"Hired a Burger and Icecream van for my 30th Party.....Best idea I had! Went down a ‘treat’ and the feedback I got on the food, caterers and general idea was fantastic! Trying to think of a reason to have another party just to use them again! Thank you!"


Katie Jeffryes - August 2014


"Hello Gary. Just want to say a massive thank you for Sunday.


The event couldn’t have run any better and I am so pleased you were there supporting us.


Please also accept this email as confirmation for the £40.00 donation given to the Hospice. You’re a fantastic company and I really appreciate everything you do.


I look forward to seeing you later in the year for the Triathlon. Kind regards"




"Had One Stop Vans for my daughters 10th birthday party, was well received  by the children and adults alike, made life incredibly easy for us the parents,  nice food, well cooked with very helpful staff and a very high standard of  cleanliness. Would definitely recommend and will be using them again, Wendy was  very accommodating from the first phone call. Thank you."


Kind regards, Gill Billington, Charity Event


"Our school contacted Gary last year to come to one of our school events and we were very impressed at the service Gary and his team provided. They arrived promptly and lots of parents commented on the polite ‘ice cream people’.


We have already booked Gary to come to our school fete and are in the process of arranging 2 more school events and will be hoping Gary can fit the dates in. We would definitely recommend Gary to other schools"


Friends Of Montgomerie School, Benfleet


"Thank you very much for your services. The two ladies who came were very nice and we had a great time. The card was very much appreciated also. You will definitely be recommended by us if we are ever asked."


Mr & Mrs Ahmet


"We booked One Stop Vans for our Festive Fayre in December last year. We had a number of young families visiting the Fayre and Gary was very accommodating when discussing what type of refreshments we would like to offer to our visitors. All the food and drink he provided was first class and good value. We would not hesitate in recommending One Stop Vans to other event organisers."


Wilderness Foundation UK, Chatham Green, Essex


"OneStopVans provided a cheery, smiling presence and great food and ice-creams at our PARAS’10 event in Colchester. They turned out at incredibly short notice, when our booked concession had a vehicle breakdown (at 630am on the Sunday morning of the event). Their attitude was unstintingly positive and can –do and they worked their socks off on a very busy day. We will certainly call them again – next time well in advance!"


Stephen Cooper, Director of Charity, The Parachute Regiment Charity


"One Stop Vans attended Colchester Hospitals Charity’s Santa Fun Run in December 2013 and managed to look after nearly 600 runners plus spectators and volunteers over a period of less than two hours. The hot drinks and bacon rolls were very welcome on a cold day and they generously gave all our volunteers a hot drink which helped the charity to raise even more for the hospital. Thank you!"


Caroline Bates, Fundraising Manager, Colchester Hospital


"The Friends of The Wick Country Park have used One Stop Vans many times now at our event 'Paws in the Park'. The friendly and professional catering team have always provided lots of burgers, hotdogs and ice-cream to the hungry crowds at this fun dog show and they will be there again this year on 8th June 2014. Always excellent service - first class! Thanking you"




"Thank you very much Gary for supporting our Firework Spectacular event. We can always rely on you to arrive on time and be placed where ever you are asked. Everybody enjoys your ice creams.. even in November! and we also love your candy floss, which is bagged so, even if it is raining it can be enjoyed without being spoiled. Thank you also for donating 15% of your takings to our school, we hope you can join us again at our next event!"


Sarah, Chair, Chelmer Valley High School PTA


"This will be the third year we have used One stop Vans at our Essex Heavy Horse and Country Show at Orsett Showground. They are a professional and reliable company providing our show with both a good value hot food outlet and an Ice Cream van, which is very convenient for us as one call books all! Here's to the fourth year!"


Maureen Cheek, Show Committee Member, Essex Heavy Horse and Country Show


"Our primary school used one stop ltd at our inflatable day. They provided the burger van and ice cream van both of which look very presentable. They arrived on time, food was brilliant, service was great and the staff were amazing. Would highly recommend, and we will be using them again. Thank you one stop ltd for helping make our event such a great success."
