Bakery | 4 years with Young Startup
Remco Beekman’s desire for working independence began at an early age. For as long as he could remember, this succesful baker wanted to run his very own company – first having his sights set in the transport industry, before his passion for all things cuisine led to him having dreams of opening his own restaurant.
After successfully completing a hotel school course, Remco spent some time working in various roles. “I gained five years of experience in business,” he explains. However, the step towards entrepreneurship did not happen until Remco’s girlfriend at the time and her father convinced him to take the plunge.
“They were both real entrepreneurs,” remembers Remco. “They had a beautiful family business. With great admiration, I listened to their stories, choices and dilemmas.” After some serious conversation, the pair motivated Remco to quit his job and follow his dream of entrepreneurship. Company formation soon followed, and Brabantsche Worstenbroodjes BV was born.
