KERB reveals the first taste of Seven Dials Market Line-up
KERB alumni Club Mexicana, Yum Bun and Square Root are amongst the inspiring independent female founders to join.
London's leading street food organisation KERB has announced the first taste of the traders that will be offering their delicious food at Seven Dials Market when it opens in the heart of London's West End this September. The first five to be announced is an all-female founder line-up who have all developed with KERB, including Club Mexicana, Yum Bun, INK, Square Root and Rice Guys, as they all open their first home in central London.
All five businesses are rooted deeply in London street food, with Club Mexicana, Yum Bun and Square Root joining Kerb in the early days, whilst INK and Rice Guys have come through the KERB incubator platform, known as the inKERBator. Each has developed cult followings since their respective launches, with Club Mexicana going onto open London's first vegan pub, The Spread Eagle whilst Square Root Soda was awarded 'Best Drinks Producer' in the BBC Food and Farming Awards. They will now join KERB on a new step forward as it opens its first bricks-and-mortar site in Seven Dials, offering the opportunity for businesses to 'take flight' out of conventional pop-up street food markets and further enhance their reputation in a permanent home.
Growing the street food economy is at the core of KERB's ethos, and Seven Dials Market will be the next step in the development of 26 independent food businesses, providing them with the opportunity to break further into London's competitive restaurant landscape.
The five female food founders follow in the entrepreneurial footsteps of KERB's founder Petra Barran, who whipped up all things chocolate in her Choc Star van at London's weekly street food markets, before setting up the street food markets, before setting up the street food organisation in 2012.
