I grew up in Johannesburg and attended Jeppe Boys High School. I have been in the hospitality industry for the past 17 years. Meeting the ever-changing challenges of day-to-day operations and interacting with the most unbelievable people is what I enjoy most about being in hospitality.

 A Day in the Life of a Restaurant Manager…

I have 40 staff members and four managers reporting to me. Most of the daily routine includes prepping and planning for the day and week ahead. Communicating with the staff and paying attention to every detail is extremely important to keep things going smoothly. A great positive attitude and respect for each other is what makes a successful restaurant team.
