If you tried the burgers at this summer’s Grangetown festival, then you can’t fail to have been impressed. Killin’s Kitchen are back – bringing their tasty wares to Grangetown World Market on 2 December. We spoke to the man in the kitchen, Richard Killin.
Q How long have you had your business?
I have had the business for three years now. I have always been a restaurant manager for large chains but got tired for working for someone else. I’ve trained as a chef previously and food has always been close to my heart so thought I’d jump in and buy myself a food truck.
Q Tell us a bit about yourself and how your business has developed?
Since then I’ve worked at NATO conference at the Celtic Manor, Glastonbury, and numerous private events for big business and individuals. It is not the easiest thing to do, setting up your own business and making it work, but it is definitely the most rewarding decision I’ve ever made.
Q What will you be selling at the market?
I will be selling a range of 100% steak mince burgers, hot dogs and fries.
Q Market goers have told us that Grangetown World Market has made them more likely to shop locally. Is shopping locally or with independents important?
Locally and independent are both important to me as supporting the community is vital but if you can shop independent then even better as you are helping individuals and families rather than big business.
