Taking the plunge to establish coffee van and events business


Fiona Horne from Boorowa has been working in the food, hospitality and events industries for over 30 years.

In 2019, she found a cute, vintage coffee van listed for sale on Facebook. She and her husband took the plunge bought the van and relocated it from the South Coast.

Now, the Arnold Vintage Coffee Van is based in Boorowa and offers superb coffee, cakes, pies, toasties, milkshakes, smoothies and other tasty delights.

Arnold is always operational bright and early on weekday mornings on the grounds of the Boorowa Recreational Club and is out and about at various markets and events in the Hilltops Region on the weekends.

He’s available to cater for private and sporting functions, and his vintage look and feel, along with Fiona’s cheery service, are always most welcome.

Lazy Dog Events has been in operation for 12 years, and Fiona, along with her very supportive family, can often be seen at weddings, significant birthdays and wakes busily setting tables, cutting vegetables, hanging fairy lights and elbow deep in washing up water.

Fiona also hires out accessories such as table linen, crockery, cutlery and glassware and the like.
