You may have noticed we have a new familiar face behind the counter at Taste. That would be our lovely new general manager – Connor!
Connor makes a cracking coffee and has a passion for friendly service with a smile. He’s just moved to Leeds and is enjoying getting to know the team and all our customers. We caught up with Connor to ask him a couple of questions about how he’s settling in:
Tell us something interesting about yourself
I recently moved to Leeds from small town life in the heart of north east County Durham where I’d worked in cafés and restaurants for years. I fancied a change and, knowing friends in Leeds, I decided to move down. I’m now living in Hyde Park.
What’s currently your favourite thing on the menu?
It’s hard to choose! However, I’d have to go with “The Mexican” with our freshly prepared guacamole and fajita chicken. It’s a Taste™ sensation.
What do you think is most important when delivering good customer service?
Service with a smile. Creating a personal experience for every customer to walk through the door. Giving our customers yet another reason to keep coming back.
Why did you join Taste?
I like the community feel of the Holbeck Urban Village. It’s great to feel as if I’m part of something bigger, driven by the many businesses which operate within the area. There’s a real thriving community here! I leapt at the chance to bring my years of experience to Taste in the hope I could contribute to an ever growing business.
What excites you most about Taste?
The variety of choice we offer and the fact that it changes daily. It’s also great to get the chance to engage with our lovely customers and be a part of their average work day. I enjoy recognising familiar faces and hope we bring them a little joy each day!
