When the wedding day rolled around, Adam and Amanda drove the newly rehabbed trailer to Greenhouse Two Rivers where the wedding and reception would soon unfold. As guests gathered for the reception, the newlyweds unveiled the new business: The Traveling Tin Co. (Springfield, 417-830-8860, thetravelingtinco.com) The mobile bar fits all the bartending needs the couple was searching for back when they were planning their wedding.
The trailer was a huge success, which gave Amanda confidence in the concept. The business has already started to grow. They’ve already received double-digit inquiries from other couples, and Amanda is now in a Facebook group with others who run similar concepts, where they can bounce ideas off each other.
As for the bar service at The Traveling Tin Co., Amanda recommends one bartender for every 75 guests. Beer is served on tap through a kegerator, and a 46-can, 50-bottle refrigerator can house an assortment of extra beverages. The Stowells can also personalize the trailer to fit a particular theme, and if you like a specific type of alcohol, they can create custom cocktails. The only thing the wedding couple needs to provide is the alcohol and mixers.
Since this is something new to Springfield, it serves to be a unique concept at any wedding. That’s what the Stowells are banking on. As the first drinks were served out of the rehabbed bar during the Stowells’ reception, Adam and Amanda raised a glass with their family and friends and toasted a new union and the launch of a new business.
