About Us

Who started Kraken Crumpets?
We are Hamish & Amy, a kiwi couple with a passion for cooking and eating great food. After time spent travelling and living in Asia and Turkey we returned to New Zealand keen to put our creativity and cooking to the test.

Why Crumpets?
Apart from the fact that crumpets are awesome! One weekend we made crumpets and the results were too good to keep to ourselves. So we quit our jobs to start Kraken Crumpets and share the taste of fresh handmade crumpets with everyone.

Did you Make the Cart?
Yes! Everything is designed and built by us – with help from lots of great people.

Hamish is an industrial designer, he came up with the design and we built it from the ground up. The trailer started life as just 4 tubes of metal and two wheels, with help from Amy’s Dad Phil we welded it into a frame. We then clad and fitted it out to get the final Kraken Crumpet Cart. For those interested the curved roof is formed with FlexyPly while the rest of the trailer is sustainably grown H3.1 NZ Radiata Pine.

Can you design and make me a cart?
We wont rule anything out give us an email hello@krakencrumpets.com and we can talk about this further.
