His aim was to bring good quality, continental style food to Hull.
Initially Herby established the first delicatessen on Newland Avenue which proved to be a very sucessfull and thriving shop serving both the local community and people from the surrounding areas who came in to see all of the continental salamis, cheeses and home cooked meats available.

Before long the business moved to bigger premises within the busy shopping center of Hull onto Ferensway, which also housed a Continental Cafe, In Store Bakery, Sandwich take-Away, Pizza and Ice Cream Parlour, High Class Butchers, Herbys was the only stockist of Twinings Tea and Taylors Coffee in Hull.
Eventually in 1993 another shop opened within the Princes Quay shopping center and then also on Holderness road in Hull.
Througout our 26 Years of trading we have prided ourselves in providing good quality food to the people of Hull hopefully encouraging people to try something new along the way.
