Join two Victoria, BC restauranteurs as they share the secrets of the industry.
Bread & Butter is a peer-driven collective aimed at providing resources and tools for improved levels of performance, peer accountability, learning & growth, political advocacy along with guidelines for operating businesses and managing lifestyles that are meaningful and lasting.
We believe that the hospitality industry has not been working for all stakeholders for a long time and that the cracks have been blown wide open by the COVID-19 crises leaving most business owners struggling to survive and concerned about the future.
Bread and Butter also believes that we can work together to develop a better way forward with the creation of a progressive community committed to holistic improvement as our foundation.
