Head-to-head with Entrepreneur's visit
Mr Free Range; Junior, an 8 Year old boy endured a cracking day...
That's right, you did read "8 Year Old boy" correctly. A budding young entrepreneur, Junior-James Wyatt was our special guest and went head-to-head with our MD at Board Room level.
When Barry Jackson read about Junior, who currently sources his own organic eggs from a farm, and sells them to local residents and small businesses, he contacted our Marketing Team to egg-clusively invite him to a personally guided tour of the operations at the very heart of Bumble Hole Foods.
The response was greeted by Junior and his proud Parents, Georgina and Mike, who were all collected from their home in Tamworth by our Business Development Executive, Dan Jackson and Bryn Davies who works for our Design & Marketing Team, Hotlobster Design.
After a long journey to Bromsgrove, the sheer excitement was a picture on Juniors' face, who was beaming on arrival. His first "surprise" was to be offered a free website by Hotlobster Design, which he gladly accepted.
Junior was greeted by our Managing Director, Barry Jackson, who wasted no time in escorting Junior and his Parents into our Board Room where he was also met by a local newspaper reporter. Junior, who is also a fan of boxing, and trains with his dad found himself going head-to-head with Barry. I must admit he held his own, it's a good job it was just around the Board Room table on this occasion though. Please note, no eggs were broken during their meeting!
After an insight as to how Bumble Hole Foods produce their products on a day-to-day scale, it was time to try on some hi-viz clothing, safety clothing and get kitted out for a guided tour!
After over a 1 hour tour, detailing areas such as The Processing Facility, Packaging areas, Delivery and understanding how all of the machines work and what they do, it was back to The Board Room for some well earned lunch.
Eggs were still high on the agenda of discussion and Junior admitted where he wants to be in the future, within the industry, so watch this space!
There was time for one last gift from our Commercial Director and Owner, Andrew Hewston. As proud sponsors of local football team, Bromsgrove Sporting, Junior was presented with a personalised replica home shirt, "JUNIOR" and No. 9 on the reverse, an early birthday present! "Wow, can I put it on now?", Junior said to his Parents. If Eggs and Football made someone happy, it was captured in that very moment.
So, the big question is, have Bumble Hole Foods just been staring at a new star signing for the future? Only time will tell...
One thing's for sure; whilst Chickens keep laying, we'll keep cracking! (and extracting and boiling!)
Junior has had a very busy interesting day today. He was kindly invited to bumble hole foods today "one of the biggest egg distributors"
We had a guided tour of the egg sorting factory, they picked us up from our home and dropped us back home, they put on a lovely lunch for us, pretty much made us feel right at home. From me and juniors dad we want to say a massive massive thank you guys for all your help and advise too. Also thank you for his new personalised football shirt.
Juniors had a great day.
Also thank you to Hotlobster Design for arranging everything and being so kind to make junior a free website.
All your hard work for making today happen is much appreciated.
