The Fat Hippo Fleet is growing!

Okay, so you may have already spotted our cryptic statuses and spotted a sneak peek but we’ve got an exciting announcement to make: The Fat Hippo Fleet is growing!

Since launching our Burger Bar back in 2013, our fleet has grown into highly successful outdoor catering. Whether it’s hitting up the latest food festivals, private events or wedding catering, we’ve been bringing the Fat Hippo burgers to you.

Naturally as the demand for our gourmet bangin’ burgers grew, so did the Fat Hippo Fleet. Having already added an impressive 10ft steel Shipping Container to our family last year, when it came to finding a new vehicle we decided to return to our roots a little. American food and indulgent burgers is what we do best, so why not look to the USA for a little inspiration? Which is when we found this guy!

Our heavy duty 1985 Chevy Kurbmaster isn’t any old burger van. This is a proper food truck made to serve up proper get it all over your face burgers. Having been adopted by Fat Hippo and transported over the pond, our Chevy has been hidden away at Fat Hippo HQ while we restored it to its former glory and kitted it out with a state of the art grill and kitchen ready to serve up all kinds of gluttony.

After putting some of our Burger Bar boys through their paces (and an extra driving test), we were excited to unveil the latest member of the fleet at Wylam Brewery’s grand opening at the Palace of Art’s this May Day Bank Holiday. We can’t wait to get out and start showing it off!

Catch our Chevy popping up at events this summer by keeping up to date with our social media channels Twitter and Facebook, or if you’re interested in hiring us out, contact Jake at
