Started in the food industry 10years ago. From waitoring, to restaurant manager, to brand developer and now for the last 6 years owner of a fast food.
From March I branched out on my own and built my own menu concept of food that is wholesome and nutritional at a great price.

Over the years with assistance from experienced operators, I’ve been able to design an program that examines the daily t/o of the business with stock consumption and live GP’s.
