“We live in a world where there’s inequality in every industry, hospitality is no different. Discrimination is gonna pop up, but how do we deal with it?”

KERB Alumni, Zan Kaufman of Bleecker Burger talks equality in the hospitality industry with #teambleecker and why everyone – men and women – should be a feminist­čĺ¬

Zan Kaufman started her career as a corporate lawyer, practising litigation in New York City for five years. In 2012, she moved to London and founded┬á Bleecker St. Burger which started as a food truck with KERB. Zan then grew the business from the ground up, building a London fan base and earning a reputation for delivering no-nonsense, proper American burgers. In 2015, responding to changing market conditions she transitioned the street food brand to a brick-and-mortar business – returning to the kerb for specials and events!

Here they are in action – Zan’s all-female crew trading at KERB King’s Cross yesterday for an #Internationalwomensday special:

“From the moment Zan rocked up in her massive black van (having only just learned how to drive stick), we knew this woman meant business. What a great example of someone making her idea real with such unflinching vision” – Petra Barran
