Real Wrap Co. - Jason & Phillippe Jason & Phillippe

Meet The Team

Their mums were best friends, and even lived together for a short spell…inevitably the boys became best friends themselves!

When they weren’t creating havoc at the Grandparent’s or building their own football goals from old pipes!

Jason’s Grandad produced his own Bacon and his Gran baked her own Bread. After lot’s of thought they realised this was the perfect first business venture, clearing £20 a day and going back to school minted!

Oddjobs started out as cleaning cars in the local village. They worked out that if they worked quickly they could clean 4 cars an hour, £5 a car is £20 an hour. Business took off and before long they were house sitting, painting houses, walking dogs and cutting grass. Obviously, they had all the health and safety training first…

Jason gets a driving license and the boys begin selling peoples unwanted goods at car boot sales, a first version of Ebay if you will. The 4am Sunday morning wake ups were made easier by blaring out Run DMC all the way there, they learnt all the words to ‘Tricky’.

Brick laying/ Plumbing/ Carpentry – which turns out very useful when building sandwich factories.

The boys went their separate ways for the first time….but not for long!

After experiencing the poor diet of a student but realises it’s too much money so scales his ambitions down. He gets granted a pitch in the centre of Bristol for a small coffee trailer. Meanwhile Phil is renovating and living in his first house.

They begin work serving the discerning people of Bristol healthy fast food wraps, made fresh to order.

The boys get a call from University West of England saying they’ve been hearing the students talk about Real Wrap and ask for a pre-packed version. They come up with a café concept and launch which a bang. Within 2 weeks it was rolled out to all sites. Later that summer they get on the road and visit universities in the West Country and Wales, every one of them wanted Real Wrap.

They start a small production kitchen. It was just the 2 of them, making sandwiches, delivering them, getting new business etc. but the boys knew they needed money to build. They met Raynor Foods, a family run sandwich company with 28 years of experience. In a Dragons Den style pitch they agree to invest money for a percentage stake in Real Wrap. On the back, they produce Real Wraps and sell them into the London market.

Certifying our factory to the highest possible standard!

Time to start growing the factory and team!

The products are now international!

A definite end to a happy era of the Real Wrap history, but the boys shake hands with their old pals at Raynor Foods, and go out by themselves!

Allowing us to supply all hospitals in Wales with our yummy retail and patient sandwiches!
