London coronavirus: Why South London street food chef isn’t giving up despite losing £50k of business during lockdown

A street food business duo from South London lost £50,000 worth of business in lockdown, but managed to transform their business into a fast-selling restaurant.

James Timmins from Croydon, and Julia Jefferis from Wimbledon, both 26, met while working as a chef and manager in the competitors and players restaurants at Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

“We became best mates,” James said, “and we always used to talk about how we’d love to do it on our own.”

They came up with the concept for ‘Utter Waffle’ while travelling South America, inspired by the Colombian savoury crêpe culture.
