Spotted outside Plaza Singapura, I came across the #GrabDurian Roadshow where various types of durians were being dehusked for tasting plates.
Having loved durian since I was a kid, it piqued my interest so I approached the #GrabDurian Van.
The friendly staff were very informative as they elaborated the differences between each type of durian to the interested passersby. They also explained that you can use the Grab app to purchase the voucher to redeem onsite.
These durians are harvested and delivered fresh daily to ensure that you are consuming the freshest King of the King of Fruits.
Grab is currently offering a taste of the top-grade durians at the roadshow with the customised #GrabDurian Events Caravan!
How can you do this?
Simply purchase an e-voucher for their tasting plates or GrabDurian boxes via the Grab app and redeem your share at the roadshow.
Can’t make it down?
You can have Grade ‘A’ Mao Shan Wang durian with FREE delivery to your home. Use the FARM2DOOR promo code via the GrabFood app from 3-9pm, valid only with minimum purchase of 2 bundles.
I had seen the caravan around Singapore at other roadshows and food stalls so I was curious to find out where they came from and how they are customised for the event. I found out that the super cute caravan are provided by Scoopy’s & Cream who provide vintage car and Kombi VW Van Rentals in Singapore. The company has more than 12 different types of kombis, in a variety of colours and models for all sorts of events. From multiple purposes of coffee stands, food trucks, to photo booths, to ice cream and of course, durian.
The events caravan provided to #GrabDurian is a converted retro “Airstream” model. This highly mobile pop-up store can be customised to your brand and to serve the purpose of that particular event, and you’d be amazed at the space it can provide inside. There was an air cooler inside to ensure the durians and the staff are kept cool and fresh, and allowing the staff to freely move around to prepare the durian for the customers. The design of the caravan allows for the convenience of having a pop-up store than has a flip up roof and yet provide a fashionable experience for the staff and customers. They even have a retractable patio area and internal power sockets! The staff definitely seemed like they were having fun while working inside the van. When we asked for photos, they even prepared their own branded signs!
If you are looking for a unique touch to your mini stall set up for either a temporary pop-up event, or even a permanent shop set up, Super Ice-Cream Truck has many selections to choose from. They can even be used for corporate events, photoshoots or your wedding day! The selection ranges from not only kombi vans, but also vespas, minis, beetles, and London taxis. The branding done on the Caravan for #GrabDurian was excellent quality which could withstand being outdoors for a long period of time, and it was definitely a stand-out for passersby who flocked to the van as soon as they saw it.
Thumbs Up from the logistics and events crew for ease of setup and teardown, saves alot of time and resources with this highly mobile pop up store Events Caravan.
