You'll most likely know today's guest as Co-Founder of Honest Burgers but he's been working away on something transformative and has also Co-Founded another business in the form of Pineapple described as "future proofing hospitality through people data and research". I am of course talking about Philip Eeles.

Philip is high on energy from the outset and to the backdrop of his balcony in Brighton, and a Gin & Tonic, we set to getting through his rather wonderful story.

There's so much to love, including:-

  • The 2023 Philip Eeles
  • Journalism aspiration
  • Starting in hospitality to pay the bills
  • Meeting Tom
  • Getting off and running
  • Naivety
  • Lewes Fireworks
  • The Third Co-Founder
  • Brixton Market
  • Expansion
  • Real Loyalty
  • Mistakes
  • Storytelling and culture
  • The future
  • Pineapple

And so much more. At times through his story you'd be forgiven for thinking that Philip lunged from one mistake to the next (Hence the title, burgering it up - You see what I did there), but the reality is that under this fun loving and high energy guy, is one driven human and as a result we have so many lessons to take from our chat.
