Join Kerb

Street Food Starter Pack

KERB exists because we want to make London taste better : on its streets and between its buildings. To make this happen we use the best traders in the business – both the already established and the new kids – bringing them together to create a big, pulsating hotbed of talent. The higher the standards, the better it all gets.

All new KERB members first go through our inKERBator scheme, a three month trial at our markets. We recruit a fresh batch of inKERBators every three months (next batch is in February 2018) and bring them up to full KERB standards . This gives early stage businesses with raw talent but little experience the chance to accelerate their growth, whilst giving Londoners a regular injection of new street food to enjoy.

If you’d like to inKERBate with us , take a look below for how to apply. If you don’t think you’re ready yet , download the Street Food Starter Pack and come back to us at a later stage. If you want to get some help from us, check out our workshops and consultancy.

APPLY TO inKERBate?

​Have a look at the list of our criteria and see if you fit the bill:
​DO YOU HAVE A CLEAR VISION​ ​AND​ HAVE YOU STARTED​​ TRADING​?
Yes! I have an original, unshakeable idea, big goals for it and a strong, clear aesthetic.​ I've already tested it, but want to come to KERB to pit it against some of London's best traders.​
DO YOU BELIEVE IN CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT?
Of course. W​hen someone tells me that something could be better I don't take it personally, I step back and consider their opinion (even if I disagree with it)​.​
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT SERVICE IS EVERYTHING?
Big time. I'm professional, reliable and straight-up - and I know how to make people feel good. My attention to the human details ​are​ built in and I consider everyone to be my customer.
ARE YOU OBSESSED BY THE FLAVOUR?
It's all I think about. I know where my food comes from, how to make it pack a punch and how to keep it consistent. I know who my competition is and ​know I ​can hold my own against it.
WILL YOU BE ALRIGHT IF YOU DON'T GET INTO KERB AFTER 3 MONTHS?
I want to be in KERB sure, but it's not the be all and end all of my business, I'm going to make it happen anyway. If after 3 months you don't pick up what I'm putting down, that's fine.

It sounds like you’re our kind of trader!
