We might have started on this journey as just the two of us, but we have picked up some awesome people on the way…
Katie was raised in Lymington before work took her around the south coast until she found her way to SO41 !! Katie has experience running and managing events, bars and weddings and is using that experience with us along side looking after sales. When not a work Katie likes to socialise with friends, enjoying a glass of wine and hitting the yoga mat.
Rob is from a little further afield in Southbourne and worked with Matt in Bournemouth. Rob has been helping us out since the beginning at events and New Milton Rugby Club. Out of work you will find Rob watching, coaching or playing cricket for either Dorset or Bournemouth.
SO41 Catering is a family business, owned and run by Matt & Lisa with the help of the little fellas Jack, Callum and Rolo.
Matt and Lisa are the owners of SO41 Catering, with a combined 35 years experienced in the hospitality sector.
Matt is the man behind the stove, working in kitchens since the age of 14 starting off as a pot wash and working his way up. Matt has a wealth of experience starting in hotels before working at major sporting events around the country before heading up the kitchen at JP Morgan in Bournemouth. When not working you can find Matt on the golf course trying to find his ball, playing rugby or watching the kids play sport.
Lisa is the face of the company, she too started washing pots before a career in hotel reception lead to her becoming head receptionist, helping out front of house and working in sales before the kids came along. When not in the office you will find Lisa walking Rolo, watching the boys play sport or on the yoga mat.
Jack aged 14 is Chief Taster, Lisa’s extra pair of hands and occasional pot wash. When not helping Mum and Dad out Jack is most happy on the rugby pitch playing for New Milton in the winter or playing cricket for Bashley in the summer. Jack is a fan of Wasps rugby club, playing on his Xbox and watching sport on the TV.
Callum aged 10 is the Creative Director. When not dreaming up new ideas for SO41 he can be found playing rugby for New Milton in the winter or playing cricket for Bashley in the summer. Callum loves animals, drawing and playing with Lego.
Rolo aged 3 (older in dog years) is the youngest member and mascot of the SO41 team!!
Rolo loves nothing better than long runs in the New Forest and being fussed over.
