Some view sandwiches as fast food to be eaten reluctantly and on the go, but this is a perception Chris Cheung is determined to change. The co-founder of artisanal sandwich maker Bread & Beast believes a great sandwich is a great meal—placed between two slices of bread.
Chris himself has the ingredients for success: a background in marketing and branding combined with an entrepreneurial spirit that runs in the family (his two sisters, Anne and Laura, have also founded successful businesses).
Chris says his role allows him to do all his favourite things, which are to cook, eat and meet new people—and he’ll now be able to do this on a global scale as Bread & Beast is to open pop-ups in Vietnam, New York and Sydney this year.
