Hi, we are Christeen and Franco and we would like to introduce you to Miss Bee-Ella! Miss Bee-Ella is a 1991 Ape 50 we shipped over from Italy and lovingly transformed into our Bee-Ella Fizz sparkling beverage cart!
Growing up in Italy, Franco has fond memories of these little scooters buzzing about throughout town. Designed for use in the small streets and hillside farms that are so iconic to Italy, The name, Ape (pronounced “Ah-Pay”) means “Little Bee” in Italian. Since seeing these in Europe it was always in my mind that “We need one of these in USA".
Our little cart spent her life in a small town in the foothills of the Alps (in the village of Biella) where her one owner used to load huge jugs of wine as well as other materials for the family farm up and down the steep and narrow roads carved into the hillsides. She might be small, but she is mighty!
After shipping her here, we painstakingly transformed her into the beauty you see today. We hope you enjoy are little Miss Bee-Ella and that she can make your event extra special with her presence!
I worked in the event and wedding industry for 15 years and love making lasting memories at these events. When I see the beautiful decorations, themes and planning I knew something like this would be the perfect addition for so many events!
