Following a recent trip we were advised that the business would probably benefit from appointing a non-executive to give us advise and direction outside of what we know. We are delighted to announce that the first appointment is Finn Foster, Tim’s 2.2 year old son!
Everyone knows we don’t do the norm here at Yummy Pubs and Finn has already had a significant impact on the pubs. He is the reason we have a (b) Bumptastic food range that pregnant ladies can choose with confidence even though when the idea was delivered, he was yet to be.
Now though we can put him to work, giving us inspiration where required and a smaller, simple outlook on life. As such we are introducing a new little peoples menu to the pubs. Sausage will be an obvious feature, but nibbles will be the main change. The most daunting thing as a parent who cares about the environment they are in and the impact your little bundle has in that environment is how to create ‘distraction’ in a number of formats.
We are used to dealing with yummy people who need entertaining, Jason has a very short attention span and you really need to give him new things to play with to keep him interested. Unlike Jason though, Finn and the other ‘littles’ out there are very vocal when they are not being distracted, Jason just sulks.
Finn is currently working on suitable distraction ideas, they are in testing, then we will see if they work on Jason and if a success will roll out to the pubs.
Nibbles will be delivered to the table ahead of the starters or mains for the adults and hopefully begin to fill a small belly and keep interest in the meal. Changing facilities are rather poor at all sites, so this is being addressed this week.
We are looking forward to seeing the impact of having Finn ‘officially’ on the team and driving a new direction in Yummy.
