We are a membership organisation dedicated to the incubation and acceleration of London’s most innovative street food businesses.
We believe that the food on our streets should be filled with incredible, diverse, slap-you-round-the-face-it’s-so-good flavour, and that the talented traders behind it should have the best chance possible to do what they love, develop their businesses and, ultimately, succeed from the kerb up.
Our platform is strong and continues to expand because is has been built on some simple yet powerful founding principles: Amazing food Talented people Professional practices Transforming city spaces
We're also shaking things up in the catering world – taking our street food prowess, raw talent and deliciousness off the kerb and into London’s biggest, most iconic and unique venues.
Our experienced team works all year round, indoors and out, in London and beyond, for 50 up to thousands of guests at award ceremonies, experiential events, conferences, Christmas parties, festivals, private dinners, weddings & product launches. HISTORY
We were founded by Petra Barran who began talent spotting and organising traders from her choc-mobile, Choc Star, in 2010.
The idea for KERB was basically incubated in an ice cream van! While scooping and shaking, rolling and pouring all chocolate everything, Petra spotted an opportunity to do something with all the talent and flavour she saw in her fellow traders.
The idea was to cluster – to seek out the most exciting street food talent, bring them together on the streets of London and progress this dynamic but previously unorganised industry.
We have been at the helm of the London street food scene since launching in 2012 at King’s Cross.
We have improved the quality of food served on the capital’s streets, legitimised the industry through professionalising its practices, given Londoners something tasty to sink their teeth into and grown a community of entrepreneurs who are driving real change across the city.
