A butcher by trade, Darren Lusted from Worcester was inspired to launch street food concept, Roly Poly Ltd in 2011.
“I’d had some event catering experience at a few shows and weddings but when Great Taste approached me about doing their events at Gloucester Quays, I spotted an opportunity and it spurred me on to leave my job and set up my street food venture, Roly Poly Ltd.
“My relationship with Great Taste went from strength to strength and I was soon catering at all the major events at Gloucester Quays such as the Enchanted Festival, Spring Festival and the Victorian Market. I’ve built up a loyal customer base, which is still growing today. I now also attend major regional events all over the UK.
“Business has grown well and I have had to invest heavily to keep up with ever changing trends. I will always be grateful to Great Taste and the Gloucester Quays team for the start they gave me and very much hope to work alongside them for many years to come.”
