A Swindon chef has launched his “unique” brunch and breakfast takeaway business from the comfort of his own home.

Jordan Dwyer, who has worked as a chef for 14 years, noticed a gap in the food delivery market during lockdown when he realised there were limited options for ordering breakfast and brunch foods in Swindon.

The 30-year-old has always wanted his own cooking business so he set about converting the outbuilding at the bottom of his garden near the County Ground into a swanky kitchen.

Jordan has the statistics to back up his ideas as he conducted market research to find out what the people of Swindon were craving before launching Jordy’s Kitchen.

Swindon Advertiser:

“We got 500 responses which was great and the most common responses were from people who didn’t want anything posh or greasy or expensive,” he said.

“They just wanted good quality home-cooked fresh food that could be delivered to them in their homes.

“Cooking has always been a passion of mine and I want to cook my own food rather than doing it for someone else.

“I decided to do a business plan and just go for it and chase my dream.

"Where else can you get a breakfast delivery from after 11am?"

Swindon Advertiser:

The dad-of-one, who was head chef at a bistro in Calne and who has worked at a Marco Pierre White restaurant, says he was inspired to cook because of his childhood experiences with food. 

“My mum didn’t have a lot of money growing up so I lived off a lot of tinned food and very basic foods.

Swindon Advertiser:

“But my grandad was a chef in the RAF so when I went there he cooked an absolute storm of food. I would sit there as a little kid thinking the flavours were absolutely amazing.”

When he was in Year 9, Jordan discovered he could learn to cook at school and says he was “blown away”.

Swindon Advertiser:

Jordan has created a menu which includes a mixture of his unique dishes and the more standard breakfast meals like the Full English. 

Some of his inventions include the sausage, chorizo and bean melt in a bun, the breakfast burrito and pesto flavoured eggy bread.

He has already had success with his business model and sold out of stock on his opening weekend. 

Swindon Advertiser:

"Sunday is definitely hangover day in Swindon!” he said.

Jordy’s Kitchen is open 7am to 3pm from Thursday to Sunday and covers most areas of Swindon. Delivery is available through JustEat and Deliveroo while collection is from Shrivenham Road.
