Meet Caroline – the front of house hands-on boss and also known as ‘the one with the pink hair!’ Caroline will never cut corners and will always tell it as it is. She likes to laugh a lot and sings for most of the day (which is unfortunate for the rest of the team).
Caroline, who previously worked in corporate hospitality and also managed a hospitality recruitment company threw herself in at the deep end launching Taste Hospitality during the recession of 2008 with everything against her. She was not able to work with clients from 4 or 5 Star hotels or any restaurants with AA Rosettes or Michelin Stars for the first six months due to loyalty to her previous company. It was her hospitality relationships and a sheer determination to succeed that won through.
‘My older brother and I grew up in North Manchester. My mum was a part-time secretary. We didn’t have much money but we had a lot of love. I had a dog called Bilbo Baggins and a cat called Tom. I was the one making mud pies and would come home filthy with one sock up and one sock down. Holidays were at Pontins in Middleton Towers in Morecombe, family time with my grandma in tow.’
