Moo-Van, LLC – Tony and Tina Borba Tony and Tina chose La Pine as their retirement place. They bought property in La Pine in 1996, but didn’t move here full time until they retired from their jobs in the Portland area. Tony remembers the day well, “It was the day before hunting season started, September 27th, 2002.” Tell us a little about your background. Tony: “I was in car sales for 23 years. For 12 years I was in the top 30-40 sales people in the United States for Audi sales. They took us to Cancun, Hawaii, the factory in Germany, where they build the Audi A-4’s. They really treated us well. I grew up on a Dairy. I milked 2 cows before and after school every day, starting when I was 6 years old. I am definitely not a big city boy, even if I had to live in the city much of my adult life.” How did you happen to start the Moo-Van business? Tony: “It helps that my hobby is cooking. We were at a rodeo and saw a Curly Fries Van. That looked interesting. A friend told us about the Van that we now have. It was sitting for about a year and a half and pretty run down. But we had the vision, bought the van. We spent about 2 months fixing it up to work in cold weather and started our route in La Pine.” What is one of the keys to your success? “We set it up for convenience. When we drive up to a business in La Pine, the employees don’t have to come out to order in the parking lot. Instead, we go in and take their order, then prepare the order and deliver it to them at their work station. Then… Consistent good quality food at affordable prices, convenience and … it’s word-of-mouth.” What is the growth potential of your business? “It has unlimited potential. It could be duplicated and franchised. We could take that van to weekend shows, fairs and other events. There are many possibilities, but right now we just want to take care of La Pine.” What has been one of your greatest challenges? “ Finding out what people really want. We have limited space because we are mobile. We aren’t able to serve salads due to limited refrigeration space.” What are some of the biggest highlights you have experienced? “We meet so many wonderful folks in La Pine! They are glad to see us and are not phony about it. If we have to go out of town for a few days they say, “We are sure glad you are back.” We are known as “Moo-Man... and The Moo-Lady.” That’s fun!” Tell us about your volunteer work. Tony: “I am on the Board of Directors for the La Pine Rodeo. I do whatever needs to be done for the Rodeo, get sponsorships and other volunteers to help out. “ What advice would you give to other Community Leaders? “Keep your mind open. Nobody is better or worse a person than the other. Enjoy the best of what you can afford and live life to the fullest you can! Anything is possible!” What is your slogan? Tina: “Make it a great day! It’s your responsibility!” Moo-Van LLC Espressos – Mochas-Sandwiches-Snacks-Cold Drinks • Mobile – We Come to You! 541-815-8031
