Mobiles businesses are on a roll around Boston

These local businesses are making moves around our city. We’re rounding up some wheel-y cool ones.

Mobile businesses are driving the market. A mobile business is a flexible, location-independent company — usually on wheels. Think: food trucks, mobile pet grooming services, etc.

We’ve noticed mobile businesses on a roll around Boston, so here are a few that we find wheel-y cool.

Tin Can Flower Company
Business is blooming for this traveling flower truck. Book the 1985 Dodge for your next event or stop by an upcoming market to grab a bouquet from the tin cans full of fresh flowers. Bonus: Stay stocked up with fresh flowers with a three or six-month subscription.

Third Alarm Pizza
This isn’t your average food truck — Kevin and his team of local firefighters have revamped a 1968 Mack Firetruck with a wood oven in the back. Bring the heat for your next event with fresh pizza, salads, and antipasto platters. City Editor Jess can confirm the pepperoni is as tasty as it looks.

This mobile business is owned and operated by a local firefighter.

Blue Bird Mobile Dessert Bar
This dessert and espresso bar is a unique and delicious addition to any event. Sip locally brewed lattes, cold brews, and tea options + snack on signature sweets like brownies, crumble bars, or biscotti.

More than Words Mobile Bookshop
The truck has been outfitted to hold up to 2,000 books and will travel to schools, parades, and other community events. The cozy interior can accommodate four adult shoppers, with a maximum of eight at one time. Interested in bringing this pop-up bookshop to your neighborhood? The shop is booking festivals, private parties, and corporate events now.
