Changes for London Calling
Before you panic, London Calling isn’t going anywhere. Well technically they are, and that’s a good thing. Earlier this month, the Cornish pasty company announced that their double decker bus at the Route 66 Food Truck Park would be closing permanently. We’re sad to see this British icon go, but glad to know that it doesn’t mark a loss of British grub. Neil Gomme, co-owner of London Calling, says that the company is growing in a different direction.
In January 2020 Gomme and co-owner Carrie Mitchell started selling their hand-held British pies for take and bake. Gomme says that this service started off well, but continued to grow throughout the pandemic with increased demand for at-home eats. Now, London Calling delivers take-and-bake pies, sausage rolls and desserts all across 417-land, from Springfield to Branson, Bolivar and beyond. You can still grab the goods fresh, too, from the mobile food truck, which makes stops at farmers markets and throughout local communities, at London Calling’s Battlefield Mall location and seasonally at the London Calling stand inside Price Cutter on South National Avenue.
