Is casual dining dead? Are branded restaurants a thing of the past? Has our sector failed to see that consumers want new experiences on each outing? How will the pandemic change consumer behaviour in the longer run?
If you have been asking yourself these questions and building a list of potential opportunities for our industry throughout this crisis, this is your chance to show what you can do with a truly great and original brand!
In 10 years, Mamuśka! Polish Kitchen and Bar has grown from a 50-seat cafe in the ‘back street’ of Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, to a 6000 square foot, 250 seat industrial site in South Bank Waterloo. We are the UK’s biggest and most well-known Polish brand and are charging ahead with our mission to introduce Polish food, art, music and culture to the wider world, starting with London and expanding into Europe and North America. Our extremely loyal fan base love to share our brand experience - authentic food and drink, great times and amazing value - and they are ready to be engaged to help you grow our business.
As Sales and Marketing Manager, you will report to and work with our freshly recruited General Manager to grow our business from an amazing number of channels: Lunch, Dinner, The Terrace BBQ and Bar, The Platform Bar, Corporate- and Private-Hire Space, Music Events, Art and Sporting Events, Outside Catering, Tour and Leisure Groups, Home and Office Delivery and even Merchandising.
This business hit just under £1 million revenue in 2019, was on track to hit £1.5 million in 2020 (before the pandemic hit) and will rebound in 2021 to break the £2 million mark. The potential for success and reward for senior manager like you, is truly outstanding.
This is a very hands-on role, and we are ready to welcome an energetic and exciting personality who will get fired-up when selling our private hire space to corporate clients and just as motivated when handing out leaflets in the street with one of the front of house service team members. We are looking for a leader who can the front of house how to 'sell it' on their own so you don't have to do it yourself. You will have at least 3 years’ marketing experience within the restaurant sector, and have a technical skill set (including basic graphics software usage) that enables you to personally implement everything from social media through to merchandising, with minimal outsourcing.
Please ensure you pitch yourself for the role in a way that demonstrates the energy we are seeking. We look forward to hearing from the very best innovators ready to exploit opportunities to grow this brand exponentially.
