It has all gone a bit quiet online throughout the summer. We apologise for that! hopefully you are keeping up to date on social media which is slightly easier to keep on top of.
What a summer it has been. Coming third in our British street food awards heat, receiving fantastic feedback from Jane Devonshire the masterchef champ herself! and of course trading at some of the most spectacular national trust areas that you can find. The business is growing in the right direction which is fantastic and hearing people speak so highly of the food is the most satisfying part of it all. To round off the summer we have managed to have three sell out weekends in a row! The BBC good food show, Kirstie Allsopp's handmade fair and the fantastic british food festival at Polesden Lacey were all really great festivals.
This summer we have really tried to do anything and everything that is out there to see what is the right thing to focus on for next year. Whether it is a heavy rock festival down in Bristol or a small wake boarding festival near thorpe park. To be honest we would probably do them all again and more, It has been a lot of fun being able to travel to all these places and get involved with the festivals. A massive thank you to all those who have helped out so far! It has got us excited for next summer already.
Now it is time to make a plan for the coming christmas months and beyond. As footfall starts to slow down due to the cold weather we are looking to expand the business elsewhere. Soon i hope to set up an online shop so all of you can get your RaviOllie fix from the comfort of your own home. Once we are up and running with that we hope we can start to tempt some local Deli's into supplying the ravioli too. Its all happening at once and we are buzzing to see what the next few months holds.
The festival's are not completely over however. We are excited to be doing the Real food market's new market in King's Cross Canopy on the last weekend of October. We are also in talks to do another BBC good food show at Olympia in November as well, and a foodies festivals at the Truman brewery in early November, so there is still lots to come. Hope to see as many of you down there as possible. Keep up to date on social media for more news and where we are (and i will try to get better at writing these more regularly).
