This new program provides a platform for the next generation in the hospitality industry ranging from street food traders, small restaurant companies to the best up and coming bar tenders and all in-between.

The members of Generation Next may be looking for help to secure investment for further expansion, guidance on business plans, advice on branding or securing their first bricks and mortar premises. All of the circa 100 members of Generation Next have the same goal, to progress in the competitive Hospitality sector with likeminded people at the same early stages of their journey in this fast paced, fun, exciting and at times daunting sector.

With the national restaurant market suffering at present and landlords looking for smaller, independent and more interesting brands, this is the ideal time that puts Generation Next in a strong position to take advantage and progress. In previous years the opportunities were far more challenging and exceptionally costly, but as landlords try and create a point of difference, this is the time to flourish for this new exciting sub-sector in the hospitality industry, which is benefiting all involved, especially the customers who are fully engaged with this new wave of operators and wider more interesting choice.

Distrkt are in the proud position to help and advise the Generation Next with other industry specialists supporting the program. Distrkt are going to be involved with many events, panel talks and workshops over the coming years with these incredible operators.

So watch this space for the Generation Next becoming the hot young stars in the sector working with Distrkt to progress and thrive on their Hospitality journey.
