London street food concept KERB has launched its ‘inKERBator Tuesdays’ initiative, designed to “discover and grow emerging street food talent.”

Taking place every Tuesday, the West India Quay venue will provide food and drink start-ups with a three-month trial space “to sell their products and test menus with consumers.” Each brand will also be mentored by KERB owner, Landsec and Schroders (SREF), to offer consumer feedback and business consultancy throughout their residency.

Hoping to “bring new dining concepts to mass audiences by nurturing enterprising food brands to become multi-site operators,” Landsec has previously worked with food businesses and street food traders, including Pizza Pilgrims.

Head of KERB community and talent, Ollie Hunter, said: “Launching the inKERBator scheme at West India Quay has given traders an invaluable platform to grow and hopefully turn into a business that will take on permanent restaurant spaces.

“We’re looking forward to seeing our newest fleet test their creative food concepts every Tuesday at West India Quay, and we’ll be helping them along the way to gather feedback to improve, innovate and grow their businesses.”
