Food lover Jessi opens Jasper's Catering Wolverhampton
Jasper’s Catering Franchise is celebrating the expansion of its network and first 2017 opening, with Jessi Birring’s new branch in Wolverhampton, serving the city and the Black Country.
Jessi has come to the business from a role in incident management for Skanska and WS Atkins so quite a change…but his love of food and desire to fast track his professional career has propelled him into the world of business ownership with Jasper’s Catering.
Having travelled across the world, with a particular love for Italy and its cuisine, Jessi had a real desire to go into a food business. The high quality of Jasper’s buffet food, prepared to order from fresh ingredients from trusted suppliers and always underpinned by the Jasper’s Guarantee, really appealed to Jessi, who loves to cook from scratch at home for himself and his wife.
Being new to business ownership, Jessi was also attracted by a franchise with strong, tried and tested systems and processes in place for everything from packaging to sales and invoicing. Jessi said:
“I knew I wanted to go into business for myself and looked at lots of opportunities, from post offices to accountancy franchises. Jasper’s really appealed to me as it is a food business and everyone needs to eat! Also the market for corporate buffet catering is outstanding, with repeat, high value orders from business customers.
“I knew there was a lot of risk attached with other food businesses like restaurants and the hours are very unsociable, where as with Jasper’s there is no working evenings or weekends. Jasper’s also guarantees a very good baseline income.”
“I was also very drawn to the franchisors and head office team at Jasper’s. They are the real deal: open and down to earth, and there is no hard sell.
I am really excited about what Jasper’s has to offer, as well as the potential to innovate and develop its products and services. I am also genuinely looking forward to honing a wide variety of business skills - Jasper’s is very versatile compared to other businesses.”
Jasper’s Director and Co-founder Nathan Siekierski said:
“We are delighted to welcome Jessi to the Jasper’s family. We started out here in the West Midlands with our Birmingham branch, so it’s great to extend our reach further into Wolverhampton and the Black Country. Jessi is already made a cracking start and we look forward to helping him realise his business ambitions.”
