How did it start?
It was simple really, it usually is!
Take a big reader, who also happens to be a huge chocaholic with a dream. I wondered if maybe, just maybe it would be possible to combine books + chocolate together, somehow!
So it started with a thought (A little "I wonder..." moment), and then the work began. At the beginning it was all thinking, talking, researching, reading-yes more reading , and slowly "The Book Resort" started taking shape. Then meetings, training, mentoring, lists-lots of lists...did i mention lists and sure enough stuff started happening.
Back to the drawing board a number of times, a few debates & discussions. Then we launched, gently at first, and people seemed to like it, really really like it.
It was soon clear that more was needed, so I did what any sane person would do and I left my job, my lovely, secure job! Yes, I was secretly terrified and it was absolutely the best
move as we now have our own tiny but passionate team in Waterford who are helping us grow.
Then a global pandemic happened (it's like a story gone wrong) and suppliers closed while customers started asking for more products. So we pulled up our sleeves (aka, did not sleep very much) and go to work and kept working and working and it all paid off. So now going into 2021, we have a new premises, loads and loads of lovely new and old suppliers, new relationships built, loyal customers and a dedicated team whom I would be lost without.
The rest of the story? We are living it and writing it now...welcome to our dream💕.
