A sandwich bar which prides itself on serving ‘good honest food’ opened this summer on Welby Street, and has proved a hit with customers.
Honest Krust is run by Daniel Charles and partner Helen Kirton, serving sandwiches, wraps and baguettes as well as specials including jacket potatoes and homemade soups.
The key idea behind Honest Krust is using locally sourced produce and making everything in front of the customer, even cutting the bread to the size of their choice.
“All our business has come from repeat custom and word of mouth. There is no greater compliment than people liking your food and coming back,” said Daniel.
Supported by the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Chambers of Commerce as well as the Grantham Retailer’s Association, the business is a new venture for Daniel who previously worked as assistant head of house at Priory Ruskin Academy, and indeed his former pupils often pop in.
Helen who has always worked in customer service said: “I always dreamt of being self-employed, and I like interacting with people here.”
Daniel’s sister Lindsey is also part of the Honest Krust team, and the family business has plans to expand into a small chain with branches in Newark and Lincoln.
