Google the word ‘cook’ and you may be surprised to find an independent food retailer from Kent at the top of the search rankings.
The company in question is COOK, the innovative manufacturer and retailer of luxury ready-meals, whose co-founder Edward Perry has just been announced as a keynote speaker at this year’s Kent 2020 Vision LIVE on Wednesday 14th May.
From a faltering start in 1997, the COOK chain has gone on to reinvent the frozen ready meals market and helped to create one of the fastest-growing niches in the food retail sector. Passion, creativity and a hunger for doing things differently have been at the heart of the COOK success story, which now has over 70 shops across the UK, employs 550 people and generates annual sales of £40m from a rapidly-expanding customer base of discerning food fans – while still remaining family- owned.
In a special lunchtime keynote, co-founder Edward Perry explains how the company’s strong culture of innovation has fuelled its growth: from new product development and the proud cooks in its Sittingbourne kitchen, to digital marketing and the cultivation of a distinctive, high-quality brand.
Make you sure you hear Edward’s fascinating account of starting and building a fast-growing business, by reserving your place now to join us on Wednesday 14th May at the Kent Event Centre.
