Why train with 4Lunch?

As the founder of 4Lunch, I have been through the process of starting my own UK-based food business from scratch, and from my home kitchen.

After more than 5 years being involved with street food, catering, cookery courses, pop-up restaurants and cafe management, I created this course to share what I’ve learned.

I am deeply passionate about helping others realise their potential and supporting those who want to give entrepreneurship a go. Even if you think you have no business knowledge, don’t worry – this course will guide you along the way, step by step, with all you need to know in one handy place.

Best of luck,
