Hi! We’re Chris and Matt.
Matt just graduated from Warwick in Economics and Chris from Oxford in Economics and Management. Over the next few years we’re going to be starting a business that brings some of the best soups from around the world to the High Street. This blog will be the warts-and-all story of that business.
After growing up through school together, our paths diverged slightly over the last few years as we went to study at different universities. Chris gathered experience in accountancy whilst Matt dipped his toes into the world of banking. It wasn’t that we didn’t like our time in the world of big corporations, but being young, ambitious and full of energy (after 8:30am at least) the prospect of starting a company was really appealing.
The idea of specialising in soup was one that we both became attached to quite quickly. People are starting to really care about what they eat, but we think that High Street chains have been slow to respond – especially when it comes to soup. Soup is something that’s being stocked and served hot in a growing number of shops, but it’s an afterthought. It’s a way to use old veg. It’s another bloody leek and potato. We’re going to to correct this. We’ve scoured the culinary world for a truly exciting, vibrant and global menu: after all, almost every country in the world has a delicious and unique soup.
Anyway, enough about us! If you have any advice, ideas or feedback, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you enjoy following our adventure!
