As the Tap Truck USA family continues to grow strong we like to highlight a branch each month that is crushing the game! For the month of December we would like to recognize and introduce you to Tap Truck Orlando!
Oliver Oetterer is the proud owner of this 1960 Ford F-100, named ‘Big Red’. Big Red is an absolute monster of a Tap Truck, with a 4.8 liter V-8 engine under her hood!
Growing up in arguably the beer capital of the world, Germany. Oliver grew up with a love of the beer culture as a whole. From a young age of five years old, he used to work and serve at beer events! The experience of making people happy by serving amazing beer, and being surrounded by a rich culture and history, Oliver formed a dream to work in the beer and entertainment industry one day!
As life carried on Oliver had begun a career in Sales. For the most part his career was focused in Public Safety, but in more recent times, he found himself working in Emergency Management.When Oliver purchased his first home, his wife gifted him a custom made bar, so of course he had a kegerator built in! Not only did it allow him to have tasty ice-cold beer on tap in his home, but it also resparked back his childhood dream to work in the beer and entertainment industry.
One day when Oliver was speaking to his former boss at his old day job he learned that his boss had recently made a big purchase. His boss had just purchased a Tap Truck, and was about to start a new journey in the mobile bar industry! Oliver was fully inspired, it was just the opportunity he had been waiting for. Having some money stashed away, he figured it would be awesome to invest in a new business and passion, rather than letting his money sit idle.
After doing some research and investigating this new business idea, he discovered that joining the Tap Truck USA family would be the perfect fit for him and his wife. Oliver's wife and himself already loved entertaining friends and family at their house. Combine that with his deep experience in sales, a passion for tasty beer, and you have the recipe for a successful Tap Truck mobile bar business!
Deciding to take the leap and begin their Tap Truck journey, they were introduced to their first truck, Big Red! It was love at first sight. The two of them loved the thrill of driving an old American classic vehicle. They really enjoyed cruising the old vintage Ford around town and all the spontaneous adventures and conversations that came along with it. After a speedy learning curve on some of their beginning events they locked down their system on how to run an outstanding mobile bar service! They thoroughly enjoyed being able to serve and share in on people’s celebrations and big days. Bringing their beauty of a truck to events of all kinds, guests could not get enough of Big Red! Seeing how they were able to elevate clients' events, and all the amazing feedback they received, they knew this Tap Truck adventure was right for them!
