KERB is a business that powers other businesses
We started with one lunch market and a vision to make it normal to enjoy good food on the streets of London.
Today our business has grown to focus on 4 areas: membership, business incubator, food hall operator and event caterer. We are a food-obsessed and people-first company who believes that everyone with a bit of spark should have the opportunity to ignite it.
Our mission is to create opportunity and joy through great food, from the kerb up.
We started life on the streets when Petra Barran began talent spotting and organising fellow traders from her choc-mobile, Choc Star, in 2009. The idea for KERB was basically incubated in an ice cream van! While scooping and shaking her wares, 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 kerbs of London and grow this dynamic but previously unorganised industry into something greater than the sum of its parts.
