  • I joined owner Simon Luard on a mission to grow and cement the brand of his street food start-up. We have expanded from one to three locations and a founding, trusted reputation in the buzzing London street food scene. Maximising the design and brand of two heavily-decorated Citroen H vans we achieved global recognition, with TV spots via CNN and the Food Network plus regular coverage in UK and international newspapers and magazines. Converting this recognition into an online presence we have built a five-figure following on Twitter and Instagram. Oh, and the food isn't half bad!
