At only 28-years-old our next guest Phillip Kuoch, founder and CEO of Goldelucks, has built one of Australia’s most fun and successful bakery businesses, pioneering the future of the baked goods and gift industries.
He is a keen and passionate entrepreneur, harbouring innovative and forward-thinking marketing strategies for business growth. Proud to be an Asian-Australian, Phillip hopes to inspire younger Asian kids
