Paul & Lisa
We would never suggest that catering was ‘in our blood’ , but customer service always has been .
Paul has owned and run his own carpentry business for over 30 years and Lisa has had several different careers, including cabin crew, teaching assistant and emergency call handler, before joining Paul in the expanding carpentry firm.
After a serious accident the summer of 2014 , Paul spent months in the garden recuperating and whilst twiddling his thumbs had a eureka moment. He didn’t quite know what it was that he wanted to do with his life, but he knew he didn’t want to work the same way any more .
After getting Lisa on board, various options were considered and whilst fitting out the new OATOPIA kitchen and warehouse, a seed was sown. We approached Tam & Pete about taking on a franchise for small to medium events.
Having always enjoyed either participating or supporting sports events , we were hooked by the company profile and the enthusiasm for their product. The opportunity to extend this to alternative events made the whole idea of running our own trailer very enticing. After what initially seemed like a whirlwind few weeks, we were up and running. The rest, as they say, is history .
The biggest step of any journey, is the first one.
