Cod of Duty

Sector Hospitality, Accommodation and Food Service Activities
Programme Start Up Loans

Matthew Martin and his wife, Corina Martin, launched Cod of Duty, a mobile Fish and Chips food truck, in December 2020 using two £17,000 Start Up Loans.

Having both worked in hospitality and been made redundant the previous month, they decided to make their dream of owning a food business together a reality. After dedicated a lot of time to naming the business, the name they landed on sprang to mind while playing video games!

The demand for the business offering was immediate, with product selling out within 30 minutes on their first day of opening. Now, with three spots secured to park the food truck and several street markets booked in, Matthew is keen to keep expanding the business’ portfolio and obtain bookings for weddings, parties and corporate events.
