A Bit about Us
- 2010 -
Founder Christopher Gowans graduated from Sheffield Hallam University, wanting to start his own street food business.
After applying to and winning the university “Enterprise Challenge” £5k prize, Let’s Go Street Food began it’s journey.
- 2011 -
We set out serving Mexican street food, with the aim to serve the most authentic and freshest street food possible.
Over the next few years we built up a steady events list and contacts as our business grew, learning many lessons along the way and perfected our recipes.
- 2014 -
Whilst on our travels we surmised that it was rare to find high quality Fish and Chips. By way of a coincidental chat with a customer at a beer festival, we ended up purchasing our beloved blue 1979 Renault Estafette van.
Soon to become the Fish and Chip Van!
- 2016 -
We served at a friends wedding, and they provided their own burgers which included beef and boar. The produce was utterly incredible and we thought “We need to get this out there!”
After trialling at more and more weddings and events, the results were in and ‘Beef or Boar’ was a hit.
And so we had another string to our bow.
- 2018 -
After trading with ‘Beef or Boar’ in Trinity Kitchen in Leeds for six weeks, an opportunity arose for us to continue trading for a further two months. Itching for a new and different product we met with our butchers. Specialising in high quality Longhorn bred cattle, we ordered samples which resulted in some highly approving taste tests. Especially when the steaks were twinned with our now-popular toasted brioche buns and crispy lettuce.
Here, ‘The Longhorn Steak Co’ was born.
- 2019 -
Let's Go Street Food continued to evolve with a number of full time employees joining the business. Dan successfully managed the list of festivals we successfully work at, leaving Chris able to build our corporate and private events arm of the business. In this we supplied food for PWC, Budweiser, Corona, Amazon, British Sugar, Yorkshire Tea, Mercedes and Greencore, serving up to 2000 meals a day.
- 2020 -
Introduced 2 new stalls: Let's Go Dogs and Let's Go Chicken Burgers.
Let's Go Dogs was born from our love for Christmas, offering bacon wrapped, giant bratwurst and an abundance of toppings, creating our "Christmas Dog".
Let's Go Chicken Burgers is another addition to our burger offering tradition and once we'd experimented with the corn flake batter, we knew this would be a winner.
