“That the company be wound up voluntarily, and that Patrick O’Brien of BPO Insolvency, Swansea, be appointed liquidator of the company for the purposes of the winding-up.”

A spokesperson from BPO confirmed to Catering Insight that the insolvency specialist is currently managing the case and investigating why these steps needed to be taken.

Manchester-based Cheshire Catering Pods was incorporated on 24 May 2018, with Companies House listing the directors as Martin and Helen Welby.

The company built and sold bespoke lightweight catering trailers aimed at street food market traders.

With a showroom located 5 minutes from Manchester’s Trafford Centre, the firm supplied two different pod types: galvanised and fibreglass.

The galvanised trucks featured a single axle chassis with A frame and pod body, constructed from galvanised steel with a car paint finish. The 3metre pods included stainless work surfaces, ventilation, made to measure gas boxes and all electrics and lighting fitted.

While the fibreglass types also comprised a single axle chassis and A frame galvanised steel, with the pod body being made from fibreglass and reinforced plastic. This type was available in four sizes from 2.4 to 3metres.

Cheshire Catering Pods has not, as yet, responded to a request for comment. Its website has been taken offline but a Twitter account remains live.
