Crawley mobile barbecue formed amid the pandemic and redundancies thrives into growing business
A mobile barbecue restaurant in Crawley, formed amid the backdrop of the pandemic and redundancies, has thrived into a growing business
Wide & Narrow Smokehouse, based at Crawley Rugby Club, was founded last year by pitmaster Colin Marshall, managing director Jermaine Weeden, and operations director Graham McDonnell.
Both Colin and Graham were made redundant during the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, the pair, along with Jermaine, pooled their lifelong love of barbecue food into the creation of the business.
The trio purchased an Airstream trailer, and several barbecue smokers, and hit the road.
Graham said: “We started when two of us were made redundant as a result of the first lockdown.
“Hospitality was hit hard. We saw an opportunity to start something local at first to share our passion for traditional barbecue food.
