Pushing through the challenges to build an amazing workplace culture with Laura Attard and Lyndal Key from The Pickle and the Patty

The Pickle & The Patty—formerly of The Ascot Lot, and The Market Hotel in South Melbourne, has made the impressive step into its new home across the road in Claredon Street.

They specialise in American-style burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken and sides, with one of the most extensive and thoughtful beverage programs in a casual restaurant in Melbourne. But not stopping there, they also used free-range grass-fed beef working with a local quality butcher for both their burgers and hot dogs, as well as making their own pickles on site.

In this podcast we discuss:

-What the biggest challenge/s are in getting the brand to this stage of opening successfully.

-With the toxic culture that both have unfortunately had to endure, why they both stayed in the industry when so many would have left.

-What we need to do to have a positive work environment for the industry.

-What are they looking forward to moving forward with the brand.
