BEE SMART CONSULTING
Building the foundations for growth
During my twenty years experience in hospitality I have gained a wealth of knowledge in Restaurants, Nightclubs and Bars, Hotels and as a Food to Go Expert. I was invited on stage at the MCA Food to Go Conference 2019 as an expert panellist. The brands that I have worked for have been both Independent and large PLCs.
Most recently I have successfully launched Warrens Bakery into the Franchise Market. I have established Warrens Bakery as the 61st and 9th (in the food category) brand in the U.K top 100 Franchise List as one of the fastest growing Food to Go brands in the U.K. Warrens Bakery now has 500 potential stores opening in the next five years, both in the U.K and Internationally.
With a strong work ethic, I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, working with great integrity and passion, striving to create a significant outcome for all tasks undertaken.
When you work with me you should expect an honest collaboration with transparency and consistency.
I believe in creating partnerships with a purpose.
