In this interview, we had the opportunity to sit down and speak with Lorraine Heskin, Founder and CEO of Gourmet Food Parlour & Gourmet Gifts.
Gourmet Food Parlour was established in 2006 with a restaurant in Dun Laoghaire and Lorraine has expanded the business to 6 locations across Dublin and Galway including a state-of-the-art catering kitchen in Santry. The business has also expanded beyond the restaurants into catering services.
