    Why Chrissy Started A Sausage Factory

    Why Chrissy Started A Sausage Factory

    Chrissy Flanagan spent a large portion of her young adult life searching for a purpose. 

    She tried what seems like every hobby imaginable, knitting, flamenco, did some travelling, practised the ukulele and just nothing stuck. 

    Until Chrissy found sausage making. 

    As Chrissy got better and better at making sausages she realised there was a gap in the market for quality snags made from good cuts of meat. So she launched Chrissy’s Cuts, opened a restaurant called the sausage factory and started brewing beer to accompany her quality snags.

    Soon enough Chrissy became known as Sydney's Sausage Queen. 

    So how does one go about building multiple businesses in an industry you have next to no experience in and why did Chrissy ultimately leave her day job after being a self-proclaimed side hustler for so many years?

    THE END BITS 

    You can keep up with Chrissy and all her sausage pursuits on Instagram @sausagequeenbrewing and @thesausagefactory___ and online at www.sausagequeen.group
