Entrepreneurship runs through the veins of Andrew Munday, co-founder of Local Kitchens, a micro food hall that collects small and independent restaurants under one roof. He’s also been involved in six other startups, including delivery giant DoorDash, and is now on a mission to help existing restaurants grow and partner with operators and chefs to create new concepts.
Local Kitchens’ most recent collaboration is with Andy Ricker, chef-founder of Pok Pok in Portland, Ore., who is recognized worldwide as an expert in Northern Thai cuisine. Ricker and Munday conceptualized and launched Tam Sang in Local Kitchens’ California locations. The menu reflects Thailand’s vibrant street food scene, and guests can order up signatures like Red Curry with Sweet Potato, Crispy Wings and more—for takeout, delivery or dining in.
Listen as Andrew shares the details about Tam Sang, how he plans to grow Local Kitchens from its current 11 locations, and what type of future culinary collaborations may be in the works.
