The kerb is a platform, a stage and a leveller. It is where a business can launch, theatre can happen from all the brilliant cooking and street life and where everyone in the city belongs.
We operate street food markets, put on public events and cater corporate and private events. We also consult, incubate new traders and run workshops.
Yes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Of course – but we also have social goals at the heart of the business that are all about making London a more delicious, independent, inclusive and fun place. (If we wanted to get rich quick we wouldn’t be in this industry ; ) )
