Nick’s career began in the hospitality industry in 1991 when he worked in a pub whilst studying Biochemistry at university. From there, Nick worked his way up through the ranks until becoming an Area Manager in 2000. Utilising his expertise, Nick worked for Whitbread where he built on his operational and development skills. Fast forward four years and Nick joined Yum! where he worked for 15 years alongside franchises including Pizza Hut and KFC, focusing on the growth and development of the franchises, and the individuals behind them.
After 29 years in the hospitality industry, Nick decided it was time for a new venture.
It was after Nick heard about the opportunity to join the Oltco family by coincidence on two separate occasions that he decided to find out more about the business. Nick’s brother, a local business owner, who Tom and Johnny have supported and a business contact of Nick’s, who happened to be Nick Carnes, Oltco’s Franchise Consultant and Director, both felt that Nick would be the perfect fit for the business and shared this opportunity with him.
The Founders of Oltco, Tom and Johnny are both big believers in fate and the law of attraction and after hearing about Nick’s expertise and his connections to the business, were really keen to meet him. It was after realising that his values and ethos were totally in line with Oltco’s that Nick launched Oltco Northwich, Cheshire in 2019.
From his business experience, Nick already has fantastic relationships with other local Northwich, Cheshire businesses and looks forward to continuing to grow these connections, and those with his customers, further.
