A Gloucestershire youngster in their early 20s has set up their own pizza business to give the community a taste of their cooking creativity.

Based in Hartpury, 22-year-old Harvey Mercer has converted a trailer into his very own pizza van. Providing freshly crafted pizzas on wheels, the business is called Pizza 2 You where the aim is to bring pizza "wherever the party takes us."

Helped out by his brother Olly Mercer, 19, and friend Callum Darke, 25, Harvey has done a few dummy runs but now the official launch is underway.

Having studied business and finance at Cardiff Metropolitan University, this is always something Harvey wanted to do.

Harvey said: "I'm really looking forward to what the future holds. Whilst at uni I did a module on takeaways and why the pizza industry has done well, especially the idea behind more pizza trailers. I found that actually it is quite a profitable business but a start up that can be quite difficult."

With maintenance help from dad and a few months converting the old horse box, now Pizza 2 You is ready to go. "Throughout the summer we'll have continuous events and we want to getting custom from the community such as Hartpury University and Staunton."
