Where you go we go!
We understand its not always practical to ‘down tools’, leave your work area to seek out much-needed sustenance. That’s why ‘where possible’ we aim to come to you!
AAFCANS strategy is to ‘follow our customer’ and ‘where you go, we go!’
Our fleet of mobile amenities vehicles work across a number of military bases and are packed with a range of onboard goodies. They visit strategic points around base (twice daily) with the menu options varying from morning to lunch. Listen for the horn, and our driver will greet you with hot meals and snacks, cold treats, fresh wraps, sandwiches, healthy snacks, cold drinks, energy drinks and more.
In 2018 we commenced a fleet investment program which will extend to 2023. We plan to invest $2.6 million into refreshment and improvements to mobile amenities capability on base and on exercise! The first few of the new style custom-built mobile amenities vehicles have hit the bitumen on Queensland bases and customers are thrilled with the new equipment. The newly built 4WD all-terrain design allows AAFCANS to retail freshly prepared meals, snacks and barista-made coffee on-the-move and is mobilized to support our troops on exercise.
Please contact your local AAFCANS Base Manager for more information about your local mobile van’s route… If you have visiting troops and need a little additional support, please contact us and we’ll do our best to assist.
