We started Make Kit in Hackney 9 months ago, and it almost feels like we've been nurturing it as our little bundle of joy and now it's ready to go out on its own!
From the corner of Haggerston on Fellows Court Estate, we started to grow our idea of a recipe kit business with a difference, one that gave back to the community whilst offering an affordable and exciting way to learn new recipes and how to cook and eat well for less.
Over 9 months we tested our recipes, designed our recipe kits and built our website whilst trying to figure out all the needs and wants of a new business! Where's the parenting handbook for this?
We've built a regular schedule that keeps things moving along and upwards whilst also getting ourselves well-needed rest! A key test for us as new "business-parents" was to make sure we can stick to our personal commitments and continue to run Make Kit successfully. So far so good, I've managed a holiday and got engaged over the last 5 days!
So, what's next for Make Kit?
We're reaching out across Hackney and offering delivery to all Hackey postcodes from next Tuesday/Wednesday.
By keeping our deliveries local we can cut down on packaging and offer more people the benefits of cooking with a recipe kit. We will also be using our London Green Cycle to travel across the borough, keeping our carbon footprint low and deliveries hyper-local meaning fresher food for you!
One of these Cargo bikes, Make Kit style, will be travelling about Hackney soon! Keep your eye out for it!
Check out our delivery windows on our collection & delivery page and remember to tell all your friends, colleagues and neighbours to give us a go!
