Hoagies

I am a streetfood trader. Cooking out of a vintage 1972 Chevy Stepvan. The food I serve is American smokehouse BBQ with some asian twists. My experience ranges from working in Michelin starred restaurants, 5 star hotels all over Europe as well as owning and running a bistro in Sweden and a café just outside London and my passion for cooking has taken a new direction with streetfood where I can create and cook in new places everyday and meet new customers. Passion, respect and hard work is what drives me. New and old technics, low and slow getting the best out of the ingredients and letting the quality of produce I buy speak for itself. Hoagies is a streetfood trader with a relaxed vibe. In Philadelphia a large sub roll is known as a hoagie this is where we took our name from because we are serving hoagies with delicious fillings as well as flatbreads, salads and the traditional all American hotdog.

What event planners say about our suppliers


Excellent all round service. Had to have a last minute change of staff due to train strikes but was really happy with the service received - I'd definitely use them again!


Usually events with a large number of guests often compromise on quality, but not with Grape and Grain Catering Co. Everyone on my table at the dinner thoroughly enjoyed all three courses, the ham hock and the coconut panncotta were especially delicious. Thanks.


The bars and fridges were brilliant, tables and chairs too. My friends were so impressed with the set up it was so professional looking. Will absolutely hire equipment again. Thanks so much. Gail
