The Street Food takeover
There’s no denying it, street food is big business; not just in London but throughout the whole of the UK, with regular street food events popping up everywhere from Cornwall to Aberdeen. Here at NCASS, we’re committed to helping independent caterers establish new and exciting businesses, street food or otherwise - and we’re not the only ones.
KERB: bringing Londoners together since 2012
Since its first market back in 2012, KERB has grown to 70 of the best traders serving over a million lunches in London’s most iconic locations including the Gherkin, Kings Cross and Camden Market. KERB founder and independent caterer/event organiser/bonified super woman Petra Barran established KERB in an endeavour to weave street food in to the fabric of London, giving Londoners a sacred space whereby they could eat communally; indeed the magic of street food lies in its ability to bring traders and customers together; an ‘agglomeration’ (poignantly, Petra’s favourite word) of people passionate about food and community.
Not surprisingly, people are flocking to join the industry, and thus, competition can be fierce. Subsequently, workshops such as those delivered by KERB, which give fledgling caterers the chance to garner advice from people who’ve been there and done it are invaluable.
KERB’s next workshop will focus on how to establish a sustainable, scalable and successful street food and will be held on Tuesday 18th September from 18:30-21:30 (BST) with tickets available here.
