Two vintage North Augustan trucks grow into a thriving business

AUGUSTA NORD, SC (WJBF) – New pop-up company that runs CSRA gets people talking.

“It is ‘Tap Truck2State‘there is actually a bigger parent company called’ Tap Truck USA ‘. They’re from San Diego, but we’re the 60th car in the fleet. This is a 1930s Chevy delivery truck sedan. We have completely restored it from nut to bolt, to bumper to bumper. We bought it from a vintage car dealership in Indiana and then drilled four holes in the side, ”co-owner Mike Heaton said.

“Tap Truck 2 State” can serve just about anything, from beer and wine to hot chocolate and soda.
Owners Mike Heaton and Brad Pond initially wanted to open a brick and mortar business, but after doing some research they realized what their next business was to be.

“I ran into the pop-up truck, kinda beer-like, and we started poking it into the ground, running it through a few different business models, and it made sense and we So here is with a delivery Chevy Sedan 1930, one of five that still stand and went ahead and drilled four holes and put it to good use, ”Pond said.

Although this is a new business, it is already a great success.

“We started in October, open for business, and I think we’ve done about 15 gigs since. We’ve got a lot more gigs on the books, a lot of weddings we’re doing, booked until next year, next summer 2022, ”Heaton said.

And there are still big plans for the future.

“It certainly won’t be our last car. We are already considering other cars to be added to the fleet. We hope to have three or four by next year. The next truck will be a panel style from the 1960s, so it will be able to accommodate more faucets and be a bit more functional when it comes to that.
