Brad Hanson from Littlehampton and Sam Hughes from Bognor Regis, also known online as ‘The Bald Builders’, have launched their own food truck, aptly named The Bald Kitchen.

The comedy duo, who have racked up millions of online views of their videos, started the truck to put Littlehampton’s food scene on the map.

Brad said: “Before starting The Bald Builders, I was a full-time builder, and over the years I’ve eaten in many cafes while working out on site.

“Some have been great, and others not so good.

“Sam and I both believe in supporting our local community, and we’re always trying to give something back.

“Littlehampton and Bognor have so much going for them, but we thought it lacked a good quality food truck that serves amazing food, so we launched The Bald Kitchen.”

The menu includes items such as The Bald XL Burger, The Bald Chicken Burger and the Bald French Stick, with produce sourced from a local butcher. Staffed with members of their families, it is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 3pm, Friday nights 5pm to 10pm and closed at weekends ‘for family time’, they said.

The location changes each day between Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, with updates shared on social media daily. They also have a car delivery service, run by their friend Matt, available for customers who can’t visit in person.

Sam said: “The opening day was terrific. We had so many local people come along to buy some food. Some of our followers even travelled from outside the county to show their support. Fantastic! We’ve spent a lot of time sourcing local quality produce. My favourite has got to be The Bald XL Burger. It’s pukka.”
