Popular Cork Food Trailer, Toast, Offers Chefs And Budding Entrepreneurs The Chance To Win Entire Business On Raffall For €12

Talented Cork-based Actor & Artist, Sebastian Thommen, is giving chefs and budding entrepreneurs the chance to win a food business of their own for just €12 by listing his food trailer, Toast Pantry & Coffee Bar, on popular raffle platform, Raffall.

Sebastian, who launched Toast in May 2020 and mostly traded in the city’s Ballinlough Park serving gourmet grilled cheese toasties and specialty coffee, has made the decision to list his entire business due to the popularity of his other passion - watercolour art commissions - in recent months. These are available to purchase via his website, www.sebastian thommen.com. Having studied Theatre Performance in Cork in 2004, Sebastian has also gone on to become a seasoned Actor and is well known for starring as Michael Collins in RTÉ's five-part TV drama, ‘Rebellion', which aired in 2016.

In purchasing a €12 ticket via www.raffall.com (search ‘Win Food and Coffee Trailer’) for the prize draw, entrants will be in with a chance of winning Toast’s professionally restored 1960’s Rice horsebox trailer. It is powered by super quiet generators worth €3,000 and comes fully equipped with a coffee machine (valued at €6k) and a fully HACCP approved kitchen. This consists of catering grade stainless steel countertops and sink, all electrics, gas and plumbing, two fridges, a gas griddle, water heater, soup kettle, an iPad, SumUp card payment terminal, till, and printer, plus a quantity of 100% compostable coffee cups - the majority of the fixtures, fittings and commodities you will need to get your own mobile food business off the ground.

And, if all of that hasn’t already turned your head, Sebastian is happy to also add in ownership of Toast’s website, www.toastcork.com, and the associated Instagram and Facebook social media accounts related to the business, if the lucky winner so chooses.

Commenting on the Raffall prize listing, Toast’s Owner, Sebastian Thommen, said: “Running ‘Toast’ has been such a positive experience for me. I’ve made many new friends and it has boosted my art career to the extent that I’m thankfully now able to pursue that full-time. It’s time to pass the torch on to someone else and hopefully help them achieve their dreams and ambitions. By Raffling the food trailer it’s exciting to know that someone who may not have been able to afford it under normal circumstances is now able to.”

In listing the entire business on Raffall, Sebastian hopes to reclaim the majority of the money he has invested while also giving someone who may not have the start-up capital required to purchase their own food trailer the opportunity to flourish and build a business of their own. 5% of the total monies generated will be donated to Sebastian's chosen charity, Pieta.

Sebastian has made 5,000 tickets available for the raffle. If all of those €12 tickets sell then one lucky winner will be selected at random via Raffall and the business will be signed over to them, including free delivery of the food trailer to anywhere in Ireland or the UK. 

In the event that the target of 5,000 tickets isn’t met, those individuals that have entered will be in with a chance of winning a cash prize equivalent to the ticket sales that have been generated by the closing date of Friday 30th September 2022. Should that be the case, the food trailer will remain under Sebastian’s ownership. Either way, it’s a win-win for entrants!
