In 2013, after multiple trips to New York, Garrett and his wife Emer set out to create London’s ultimate fried chicken sandwich, creating the cult street food sensation, ‘Butchies’.
Ever-growing queues, combined with selling out earlier and earlier each week, made us realise we were doing something special. After being offered a Summer pop-up at Rivington Street’s Red Market in 2014, Garrett packed in the desk job and went full-time Butchies! Since then we have been serving up fried chicken sandwiches at music festivals, events and pop-ups in London and further afield. In 2017 we opened a full bricks and mortar restaurant on Rivington Street in Shoreditch.
