Food Entrepreneurs Panel


In June 2015, the Young AICC held its fourth event for the year on "entrepreneurship and 'cult brands' in the food industry".  This event sold out in a record-breaking three days.


Panelists Tim McDonald (Fonda Mexican), Declan Lee (Gelato Messina) and Sal Malatesta (St Ali Coffee) covered topics ranging from their own respective entrepreneurial journeys; their different perspectives on creating and maintaining a cult brand; and what it is that excites them personally about the future.
