The food truck owners invested heavily into the new take-away food stand. The stand, housed in an eye-catching 10.2ft high Giant Can, now dressed in the typical Bavarian colors, will feature authentic German cuisine in the heart of London.

Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, UK – Stefan Schenkelberg may be devastated by the recent loss of his brother and uncle but he is moving forward with plans to open a unique take-away food business on East Street Market, just off Elephant & Castle train station, one of the oldest and largest street markets London has to offer.

Named after Schenkelberg’s brother Rainer, it will be called Rainer’s Bavarian Grill and feature authentic German cuisine. Rainer died a few months ago at age 54 after suffering through a life of paralysis caused by cerebral palsy. In the past year, Schenkelberg has also lost an uncle.

‘Rainer loved our homemade German curry sauce the most and he was very excited about the prospects of our opening our food stand in London,” recalls Schenkelberg. “So we are using his memory as motivation for our new business.”

Rainer’s Bavarian Grill, set to open on Friday the 11th of December with a bang. Dignities of the UK Government and food tasting experts are invited as well as the local press followed by a small Christmas-at-the-Can event the very next day on Saturday the 12th and the official Christmas-at-the-Can festival event on Saturday the 19th of December.

Just ready to announce their arrival East Street the ‘Weekender,’ in their coming edition of Friday the 11th of December, will publish an advertisement:

‘We’re going to serve great food and I think people will really notice us. It’s going to stand out, even on a crowded market street,’ says Schenkelberg, who will run the business with his wife, Regina. “Where else can you get authentic Bavarian cooking to take out?”

The company is to team up with Just Eat, so people will find it easy to order their lunch from the convenience of their offices.

In addition, the food stand will use air fryers instead of deep-fat fryers and offer wholesome, low-fat alternatives for those who are focused on healthy diets.

“There will be something for everyone and every season, served from the Gourmet Express outlet at a reasonable price,” Schenkelberg says and he points to the ever more famous Christmas Stollen, home-baked by Regina Schenkelberg. “We’re targeting business people and expect it to be a very popular spot.”

The business plan has been developed, the menu has been set and food distributors have been lined up. The cooking equipment is ready to go.

what next

Gourmet Express Mobile Catering, the popular Giant Can (for many known as ‘German food wagon with the Bavarian style marquee’) spot in Aylesbury, is temporarily closed for “restructuring and retooling” and will reopen in a few days time.

“We are re-engineering the menu, and looking at the whole structure of the business,” said owner Stefan Schenkelberg in a phone interview on Tuesday. Schenkelberg disputed rumors — heard around town and posted on a local message board — that the food stall was shutting its doors for good.

Schenkelberg said he decided to take advantage of the Winter lull in street food markets to make some changes, and the ‘restaurant’ will reopen in a few days time.

He said there will be some “new management and procedures” in place; the ‘can crew’ will remain the same for now.

When asked if any renovations were taking place, Schenkelberg said “nothing major. I don’t want people expecting a makeover.”

Schenkelberg said this time of year was slow for the ‘restaurant,’ as it is for many of our fellow street restaurant and food cart owners. Also, when there are adverse weather conditions such as freezing temperatures and snow, the ‘can’ sees a dip in business. “If there’s no brick and mortal restaurant, it’s out of sight, out of mind,” he said.
