Jawbone Scotch Egg Co.
I run Jawbone Scotch Egg Co, my own Scotch egg business where I make fresh scotch eggs every Saturday morning in a converted shipping container. It has a gas fryer, an oven and stainless work surfaces and is 5* hygiene rated. I restarted the business in March 2020 in the middle of the first lockdown when I had spare time at home. It had previously been closed down as it wasn’t making a profit. I have a range of 11 flavours but just make 2 flavours each week, an original one and a guest flavour. Flavours include: Cumberland, Spicy Tomato, Punjabi Curry, Black Pudding and Full English. The next one I am going to try is a full English. Through social media and word of mouth the business has grown and become well known in the local area. I now supply 4 locals cafes & delis as well as selling from the shipping container. I also have a website where customers can pre-order. They cost £2.80 or £2 trade. I sell 100-150 each Saturday morning. I want to build the business by making improvements to the appearance of the outside of the container and also add a seating area. If demand does increase, I will also want to invest in developing new flavours, additional fryers and staff. Costs include pork, eggs, panko, oil, gas, packaging, wages and cleaning equipment.
