Pop­pet’s Pantry ex­pands its reach

Cockburn Gazette - - BUSINESS -

STEVE and Jane Hitch­ings’ baby food to go was so pop­u­lar with par­ents they re­peat­edly re­ceived re­quests for fam­ily­sized serv­ings.

The chefs from Swan­bourne then ex­panded their range and Pop­pet’s Pantry was born.

The four-year-old North Fre­man­tle busi­ness has ex­panded to of­fer cater­ing and their de­liv­ery ser­vice has re­cently been boosted from two to four zones to take in north­ern and east­ern sub­urbs, along that the meals were preser­va­tive and sugar free, and they catered for gluten and dairy free clients.

The cou­ple, who now have two chil­dren, met when Mr Hitch­ings was a chef on one of Richard Branson’s pri­vate is­lands and his fu­ture wife was cook­ing on the is­land next door.

The name came from a nick­name Mrs Hitch­ing was given by her niece.

“I was called Janey Pop­pet by my niece,” she said.
