Kicking off in 2019, with the first edition of Startup Grind Southampton we're excited to bring you startup legend Jim Cregan of Jimmy's Iced Coffee !
Many will know how Jim and his sister Suzie started their business but this fireside chat is all about the pitfalls and challenges they faced when scaling up to the national iced coffee empire that sold over 5.5 million drinks last year.
About this event
We're excited to welcome regional startup legend Jim Cregan of Jimmy's Iced Coffee in February and although most local entrepreneurs will already be familiar with how Jim and his sister Suzie started their coffee empire, they might not know about the problems, pitfalls, and challenges they faced while scaling to the national household name we all know and love today.
Scaling to a business capable of producing more than 5.5 million drinks a year from outlets including supermarket giants like Tesco and Waitrose doesn't come without its challenges and that's what we want to explore in more detail in this session.
