Restaurant Manager

Kelly Fisher

I’ve been in the hospitality trade for over 20 years, working my way up to senior management and taking a little time out to raise my two daughters.

I joined Lussmanns in May 2022 and it is one of the best moves I have made in my career! I feel more valued as an employee, I love the Lussmanns ‘one of a kind’ cuisine and the values they instil into their staff. I feel progression within the company is achievable as everyone is helpful and approachable.

I have been working in the hospitality trade for 15 years after training as a chef at college. I have done all kinds of different kinds of cuisine which is what attracted me to Lussmanns. I like the work ethic along with the sustainability ethos that we provide.

Lussmans gives me the support for me to develop both myself and my team with the hands-on approach we have.

My favourite dish is MSC fish cake with a free range poached egg.
