Jack Crotty, founder and owner of The Rocket Man won Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur “Best Existing Business” category from the Local Enterprise Office Cork City in 2015. He told us a little about how his business has grown and what’s next….
The Rocket Man Food Company will celebrate its 5th birthday in March 2017. What started as a farmers market stall has grown to a company employing 15, many of whom are full time and has a network of up to 40 local producers on our books.
Our second Cork City location E A S T is almost a year old and trade is great.
Our next moves are as usual a big secret, but for the time being focuses are being put on our existing outlets to polish and reinvent some of our offerings.
IBYE is not only a great chance for financial assistance, the process also makes for a great experience and vital training in many aspects of forming a start-up and running your own business. I couldn’t recommend it more.
