“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?”
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 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!
