Meet the female entrepreneurs of the restaurant industry

Curated by

 

Continuing on a theme The Guardian newspaper recently collected responses from 12 of the top female entrepreneurs working in the UK restaurant industry, from CEOs to head chefs and creative directors. Interviewees included, chefs Angela Hartnett (and proprietor at Murano), Skye Gyngell (Chef and Proprietor at Spring Restaurant at Somerset House) and Zoe Paskin the co-owner of The Palomar and Sophie Bathgate, director of Sophie’s Steakhouse. However, Hartnett, as well as the majoirty of other entrepreneurs picked up on the less publicised rewards and the sense of personal satisfaction the industry had afforded them.

 

 

  • Whether CEO, director or head chef most of the women mirrored sentiments on the tenacity required to work in the restaurant industry.
  • Business women, Catherine Salway, CEO recounted the moment she was offered funding by entrepreneur and businessman Richard Branson as a pivotal point in her career as he believed in the future success of the business.
  • From the symbolic moment of a guy painting the name on the exterior of a first restaurant, to presenting infront of a class of students and having it dawn on you for the first time what you have achieved since you were in their very shoes, to having an industry expert enjoy your food.
