We’re vegan company who support some amazing charities whilst producing delicious healthy fast food. Our newest experiment is to change the way business is done and to run our restaurants on Gift Economy. Challenging how people interact with money and the competition and scarcity / excess that commonly comes with it. In essence we take the demand of payment away from the customer and turn the transaction into a gift. As a kinder way to do business, this means we are able to connect on a more personal level to the customers, and the customers choose to support us. We are looking for a team member who is interested in developing an understanding of Gift Economy and shaping each customer’s experience through kindness. We're looking for staff who get excited by experiments like this and like the idea of serving rather than selling.
