Coming Back Stronger is a special edition podcast series focusing on the way food and drinks businesses are bouncing back as the world slowly starts to re-open from COVID-19.

We will especially share great stories on how progressive leaders are bouncing back from the pandemic by utilising the power of technology and delivery. 

By tuning into these conversations in the coming period you will be able to pick up great stories, insights and facts as well as best practices from industry experts, independent operators to national chains who all are setting a new standard for how to operate in the new normal.

Vita Mojo and Hospitality Mavericks joined forces on this project due to we have shared beliefs on how tech plays a massive role in building companies that are good for people, communities and the planet.

In this episode, Michael talks with Yazz Abdulla CEO and Founder of Urban Hospitality. A consultancy business that has been focusing on delivering dark kitchen projects over the last couple of years. 

Yazz and I talk about the rise of dark kitchen and delivery and their impact on the restaurant industry pre and post-pandemic. We also talk about in detail how you set up and build an outstanding dark kitchen brand and operations, and how the market will move the next 12-18 months.

    Michael Tingsager

    I love to develop and grow hospitality and restaurant leaders to unleash their own and their organisations true potential by reframing thinking by putting people first.

    I believe and live by building hospitality and restaurants businesses from the inside out. When your employees love your company, your customers will love you — brand nirvana.

    I was born into the industry and learned the ropes on the frontline by working in the front of the house and heart the operation in my Mum and Dad's restaurants. Since then I've branched out. Over the years I've had different roles within operations and people - running and managing my own restaurants to being multi-unit operations and people director (+24 units/+250 employees) and working with global brands like McDonald’s for +11 years.

    At Hospitality Mavericks we are on a mission to inspire leaders and entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry to create profitable and heart-centred businesses from the inside out; the kind that both employees and customers love and support. Here you will find conversations with industry Mavericks who take a value-based approach to run their businesses whilst displaying a fierce passion for our industry. They Dare to be Different.
