Earlier this year James Kavanagh and partner William Murray opened their very own business together and now James is sharing what’s it really like to work together.
The pair launched the Currabinny food truck back in August to take their passion for food to another level.
Situated in Goldenbridge Industrial Estate, Inchicore, they offer everything from coffee and sandwiches to tasty dinners!
Speaking to Extra.ie, James gave a little insight into how he finds working with his partner saying: “It’s like playing shop.”

“Me and my partner are obsessed with food, every meal is an occasion. As soon as we finish breakfast we’re on to thinking about lunch. We decided to turn our obsession into a brand, we started catering, wrote a cookbook and opened the food truck.”
“We take the head off each other, we argue so much.”
Continuing: “The key is being able to get over an argument quickly and not harbour bad feelings or stew in a bad mood all day. You have to be able to get over an argument and we’re quite good at that.”
So, if you’re considering opening a business with your other-half, James has some simple advice for you: “Make sure you can get over fights quickly and not bring them home.”
James also revealed how filming his show, Takeaway Titans gave him insight into how to run a food business.
“‘I was opening our food truck while filming the show, I used the show as research. I was asking them loads of questions,” he shared.
“It was a very handy time and useful because they’re all established and I was just starting.”
The Currabinny caravan is open every Thursday to Sunday between 10am and 3pm.
