Going ape for ice cream: fwip’s a hit at German events & parties

Event-Ape Johnny, a popular mobile bar

Carolin and Patrick Wohlschläger run Germany’s most unique mobile bar – the memorably-named Event-Ape Johnny. Built around a three-wheeled, achingly retro, Piaggio Ape Classic, this small yet perfectly-formed van/retro bar has been doing the rounds to great success since it was built in 2020. 

The striking mobile coffee and ice-cream bar is a very popular guest at events

Catering to private parties, corporate events, and rocking up at carefully-selected leisure events, Event-Ape Johnny specialises in two main products: coffee and luxury ice-cream.  

When Portobello met Johnny

Like his premium ice-cream provider, Event-Ape Johnny was built with versatility in mind. And his owners use two main setups: an espresso bar and a dessert selection including, (you guessed it) fwip!

With the classic retro styling of the Portobello ice cream machine, the mutual love of Italy and Johnny’s preference for low energy consumption (using his own battery), they’re a picture-perfect match.

Why choose fwip?

Not only is the  distinct styling a hit with customers, fwip’s ready-to-go ice-cream makes mobile use hassle-free. As Carolin and Patrick point out,

fwip is not complicated and very easy to use. Customers pick their favourite flavour and we serve it with the push of a single button. Thanks to the pre-portioned sizes, we avoid any food waste.

fwip products also helped the business during the challenges of the pandemic, especially in terms of hygiene.

As each delicious fwip is sealed inside a capsule, the product is completely COVID compliant – the perfect concept for leisure events.

Plus its small-but-mighty size, combined with plug and play functionality, make handling and setting up the machine for their mobile business simple.  

The Portobello’s low energy consumption feature also makes it compatible with the couple’s drive for more sustainable mobile catering options. 

So what do their customers actually think?

fwip is certainly proving popular, and Patrick and Carolin recall one event in particular,

The demand for fwip was so high that we needed more ice cream after just 30 minutes!
