Two business owners have been left heartbroken after their converted horsebox was stolen, just weeks after their company was launched.
The vehicle was set to house Pretty Little Tea Co. and was taken from a driveway in Hextable last week.
Sophie Dean and her business partner, Sarah Moroney, have spent seven years working together, with the dream of opening their own afternoon tea company.
After purchasing their horsebox, Rosie, last summer, it has taken around six months to convert the vintage vehicle into a mobile catering service.
The original 1980s Sinclair trailer was fitted with bespoke worktops, an up-cycled dresser and extending prosecco bar.
The pair have worked tirelessly alongside husbands Sean and Steve to turn their dream of owning their own company into a reality.
Sophie, 28, from Darenth, said: "We are just heartbroken.
"After it was stolen, Sarah rang me in tears, and we went out looking for it.
"We are just trying our hardest to find it, and hoping that even if we don't find it at the moment, we might find it if it's sold."
The project, which was finished on Friday, April 20 was set to help provide for both Sophie, Sarah and their families.
Sophie, who recently had a baby, is currently on maternity leave, and Sarah began working part-time to allow her to start the business.
If the horsebox isn't returned, they will face the difficulty of attempting to convince insurers of its increased value after the conversion.
The theft took place from the driveway of Sarah's home in Main Road, Hextable on Thursday, April 26.
It happened at around 11.45am, and the vehicle was seen travelling further down the road at 11.47am on CCTV.
The horsebox was being pulled by a silver Vauxhall estate car.
