Assistant Manager

As I had 4 small children I found I was spending too much time in work and not enough time with my family. I asked to become assistant manager so that I could still have input into the running of the restaurant but had time to help with my family. Now that they are older I am looking for a new challenge.

Business Manager

In May 2011 we had to let the Business Manager at the Newtown store go as he was starting to underperform and with the economic climate they way it was decided that it would be better if I took over running that store again.

Licensee Supervisor

As Licensee Supervisor I was responsible for the running of several restaurants. I was in charge of a team of 170 people. I had to help the Franchisee put together he annual business plan and to work with the teams in each restaurant to ensure that those plans and targets were achieved.

During my time as Licensee Supervisor the company saw double digit sales growth and were granted a licensee to operate 24 hours in one of the restaurants.

I helped drive profitability by introducing a bonus scheme based on beating targets from the business plan that ensured everyone stayed motivated on the key performance indicators.

I held regular activities in both restaurants to help grow the Brand within the local communities.
