OUR STORY…

Our founder Robert started Humdingers with a simple vision of bringing unpretentious but delicious food to as many people as possible.

Having cut his teeth in some of the best restaurants in London, including L’Escargot and the River Café, he broke out on his own with a cake stall in Stoke Newington, selling homemade cakes to hungry locals. Within six months he had moved to a larger kitchen to start a sandwich and salad delivery service for the local NHS walk-in centres.

A year later, Robert had the opportunity to transform a-thousand-square-foot space within Rosemary Works in Hoxton, into a fully equipped kitchen and office space; and this is where Humdingers Catering began.

Five years on, its thriving success meant that Humdingers Catering needed a bigger and better HQ, and so in 2011 it moved into its new home on Hoxton Street.

Humdingers Catering has since flourished into a popular catering company, catering for weddings, events, location shoots, fashion houses, studios and corporate companies all across London.
