Krave has the recipe for success

AS INGENIOUS as it is delicious, Krave is a local business that delivers nutritious and tasty lunches to workplaces in the Killarney and Tralee areas.

Krave was established in July of this year to offer busy working people the convenience of having a healthy and delicious lunch delivered straight to their desk.

The owner of Krave, Kate Leen, said: “I remember being at work in my previous role and as a busy manager I rarely took a full lunch break. Some days i would be organised enough to pack my lunch other days not so. Also having two small children to get out the door, I came to realise we often neglect our own wellbeing! I remember thinking one day if someone could hand me my lunch and a healthy one at that it might make lunch time a bit easier.”

Kate’s husband David Leen already ran a business providing salads made fresh daily with no additives or preservatives to shops, delis and butchers.

After much research Kate undertook a food programme. “This helped me greatly understand the food business and helped us with the development of Krave,” she added.

“We also worked closely with local chef Mark Doe over a number of months to create nutritious and delicious lunches, with healthy proteins and slow-release carbs to keep you fuller for longer and avoid that mid afternoon slump.”

All Krave dishes are available through delivery and are not available to shops. “We have also introduced vegetable curries and rustic soups to our winter menu to warm your toes in the winter months!” said Kate.

Krave, along with its sister business the long-established Con Leen Salads, is located in The Kerry Food Hub in Firies village. “We offer deliveries in Tralee on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and in Killarney on Wednesdays and Fridays with a view to adding additional delivery days,” said Kate.

The coveted KY-1 plate has been allocated to Adams of Tralee for the second year in a row.

The county’s Hyundai dealership secured the coveted plate as a result of the Hyundai Tucson topping the individual model sales charts for 2021.

Available in diesel, petrol and pug-in hybrid, the Tucson offers something for every motorists.

With the switch to full electric not far away, Adams of Tralee’s general manager Marcus O’Shea believes that hybrid offers the perfect transition from fossil fuelled-cars to electric.

“It is a steeping-stone towards full electric,” he told the Killarney Advertiser. “It reduces the range anxiety for those not ready for full electric and it gets people used to new ways – plugging in the car at night at home will become normal and hybrid is the first step.”

The Tucson range has a model to suit all tastes and budgets. As well as being available in petrol, diesel or hybrid, each power variant is also available as in entry-level, mid or high specification formats.

Nicole Coffey of Nicole’s Hair Salon on St Anne’s was inspired to run a fundraiser for a women’s refuge after hearing distressing stories from some of her clients.

On Saturday last she offered a wash and blow-dry to clients and rather than charging them for the her services her customers made a donation to Adapt Women’s Refuge in Tralee.

Nicole was inspired to run the charity day because a lot of her regular clients opened up to her while they were getting their hair done.

The timing of her charity day was poignant as it came just days after Ashling Murphy was murdered while out for a run in her own town of Tullamore.

“People open up while I do their hair, many of them would not know that there is a refuge in Kerry,” she told the Killarney Advertiser. “I have experience with clients who are struggling. I had this idea to create more awareness for Adapt.”

She raised €2,000 for Adapt and the cheque was handed over to the Tralee-based charity on Thursday night this week.

Such was the success of her charity day Nicole worked from 7am to 7pm and as well as cash donations customers also donated vouchers and care packs to the charity.
