A NEW street food business started by a Kidderminster chef has gone down a storm.

Todd Turner has opened Bigmouths Kitchen Halesowen after his catering firm was hit hard by the pandemic.

His new business is up and running at the cricket club at Halesowen Cricket Club, Seth Somers Park, Grange Road, serving mouthwatering food including burgers, hot dogs, mac n' cheese, nachos and loaded fries.

It offers eat in, delivery, click and collect or takeaway and has been a huge hit.

Todd said: "It's been amazing - it's been really busy - we didn't expect it to be this busy!"

The 27-year-old, who is a trained chef, decided to go self employed to focus on private dining and wedding catering and started Bigmouths Catering last February.

However when covid hit only four out of fifty events he had booked up were able to go ahead and he had to rethink his business.

He started Bigmouths Kitchen bringing street food to people's doors from a trailer in his hometown of Kidderminster.

After looking for a permanent base Todd found Halesowen Cricket Club, which he said is an ideal venue for Bigmouths Kitchen Halesowen.

Todd said: "We use the club's kitchen - people can turn up and buy food or there is a delivery service."

He is still running his catering company alongside the street food business - and also does street food pop-ups at various venues.

Last Friday and Saturday he was staging a pop-up at the Green Duck Beer Co. in Stourbridge.

Todd hopes to open expand and open a speakeasy-style restaurant in the future.

He said: "We have got big plans."
