Our Story

A Lockdown Success Story

"JB Kitchen was set up in the first lockdown of 2020, with the initial intention of helping out the local community in Thurcaston.  We had both been furloughed from the hospitality industry and having been used to working 55+ hour weeks and being on our feet every day, we soon became bored and wanted to do something to help.  We put a post on our Spotted: Thurcaston Facebook page offering help with food supplies and the cooking and from there set up our own Facebook page, JB Kitchen Thurcaston.  The support and encouragement we received was so strong that when it was time to go back to work, we both made the decision to become self-employed and make JB Kitchen our full-time jobs!

Our proudest achievements to date have to be serving 100 x 3-course meals from our home kitchen to the members of Leicestershire charity, Arthritis Support Leicestershire, receiving our 5* Environmental Health Rating, being recommended by The Great Food Club and collecting over 300 Easter Eggs for WeCareUK who donated them to those in need, such as to women's refuges and children's homes. 

A big THANK YOU goes to not only all of those who have supported, encouraged, ordered from us and followed our journey but also to our family members who have given their time and energy to help with deliveries and beyond. 

The future is exciting!"
