Dear customers & friends
After almost 13 years, I wanted to share the news that I have sold The Burger Joint today.
It’s been the most incredible journey with some massive highs and lows. I am immensely proud of having built the business from scratch – from our humble beginnings on Cotham Hill to the two outstanding restaurants we have today, which have become Bristol institutions. At the end of what has proved to be one of our most successful years ever – despite the challenges of Covid – I feel the time is right for me to hand over the reins.
We will introduce the new owners to you on our socials over the next few weeks; I am confident I am leaving the Burger Joint in good hands and that the business will continue to go from strength to strength. They are inheriting the most wonderful team who are committed to ensuring the restaurants continue to provide you with epic burgers and excellent service.
There are so many people to thank for everything they have done to help and support me – I won’t bore you with listing them all, though I must single out all the staff who have worked for me over the years. I have been lucky to have had so many amazing people work with me all of whom have have contributed to The Burger Joint’s success.
Most importantly I would like to thank all of our customers: a restaurant is nothing without you.
I’m so thankful and proud that The Burger Joint has proven to be such a popular concept and has stood the test of time. I have no doubt we will be here for many years to come.
I will be remaining in the business for the next few months to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible, so come in for a burger so I can get to say goodbye to as many of you as possible.
Beyond the next few months, I will be stepping back from the day to day and working alongside the new owners on a strategic basis to ensure we keep doing what we do best and helping with their exciting growth plans.
Big love to everyone
