Meet the Food Truck: Greedy and Co

Sarah Kirkpatrick and Renee Lakomy met through their partners, who are fraternal twins. They discovered a shared love of food and coffee, and found their Pukerua Bay community was crying out for a space to connect with no local cafes. The idea to start a coffee caravan was born. In July 2020, Greedy and Co opened.

Kirkpatrick and Lakomy’s food ethos is all about making goods from scratch, and providing nourishment. Greedy and Co specialises in homemade pies, making their own pastry and baking such as muffins, cakes and focaccia. 

The lovely Pukerua Bay community serves as inspiration. Locals often share fruit and vegetables from their gardens and recipes from their homes, reflected in Greedy and Co’s style of lovingly homemade food, made for locals by locals.

“At the end of the day, we do this for our family, friends and wider community.”

Right now, Greedy and Co has a permanent spot in Pukerua Bay. The caravan sits on a large field opposite the local school making it the perfect place for kids to run around, and has plenty of space for parking. 

“You can grab a coffee and relax.”

Originally working from Renee’s home kitchen, the pair found it hard to separate work and home life. As the business has grown, they have been able to move into a separate premise, keeping work life independent. 

In the future, the Greedy and Co owners would love a cafe space that serves as a community hub, displaying local artwork, showcasing producers, and hosting events. 

The Greedy and Co caravan is situated at 98 Rawhiti Road, Pukerua Bay.
