Posted at 18:16h in #StartedAsATrader
Greg Small founded Rummanco in 2005 with the aim of sharing the speciality dishes of Jamaica, his ancestral homeland, with hungry Londoners.
With help from Shepherds Markets startup brand “Startisans’ the young chef uses traditional Caribbean recipes as a starting point to create his own unique, creative touches that have become a selection of popular artisan products, including Jamaican patties and gluten free rum cakes, that have the London street food scene by storm.
Since starting up on a market stall, Greg has established a successful online shop but loves maintaining the direct face to face relationship with the customer that food markets can cultivate.
His advice for startup entrepreneurs: ‘Have resilience. Not everyday is filled with sunshine and you will have your down days but keep focusing on where you want to get to and enjoy the journey!”
