Mighty Oaks Grow

Oak House Kitchen has recently undergone a bit of a transformation, rebranding simply to OHK in 2023 and taking on a new look and feel.

Founded in 2017 by Preston Walker and James Ball, to provide catering consultancy and training in the healthcare sector. Meeting in 2013, James and Preston collaborated on a number of projects to develop the quality food and training within health and social care. James joined Preston and the team at Oak House Residential Home in 2015. Since then, the working relationship has really taken off.

Working closely together every day, Preston and James continually test, develop and refine ideas with all concepts developed within the context of an operational care home. Oak House Residential Home closed in XXX yet this was just the start of their story.

Word of mouth has brought many businesses, organisations and healthcare professionals to Preston and James looking for advice, support and training. Premier Foods, Nutricia, Care UK and Quantum Care are among some of the businesses. The Hospital Caterers Association, National Association of Care Caterers, Greenwich CCG, Hampshire County Council, Barnet and Southgate College and Hospitality House among some of the organisations.

The name Oak House Kitchen pays homage to their origins, reflecting their commitment to continually questioning industry standards and seeking innovative solutions to improve the quality of life for all. To stay true to these roots, the rebrand didn’t stray too far, with OHK as the new company name taken forward – and you’ll notice the logo still includes a legacy reference to the famous Oak tree from which the company name was first born.
