In business with mum and dad

Bob Wright and his wife Diane are from London but they live in Cardiff with their 24 year-old twin daughters Gina and Molly, and their 19-year-old son Jack.

Bob has four coffee shops in the cities of Cardiff and Swansea. People go to Bob’s coffee shops to drink coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, eat sandwiches, and read newspapers and magazines. He makes sandwiches, with cheese and salad but not with meat or chicken. His big sandwiches are very popular with students. Bob isn’t the only person in his family in the restaurant business. He has two business partners and they are his daughters!

‘Gina is an accountant, and she is good at numbers,’ says Bob. ‘She doesn’t work in the coffee shops. She works in the office. Molly is good with people. She goes to our coffee shops and speaks to our customers. My daughters work long hours. They start work at half past seven in the morning and they finish late at night.’

Bob’s son is a student and he doesn’t work in the family business. He studies medicine at Cardiff University and wants to be a doctor. His dad says, ‘My son Jack isn’t interested in the restaurant business, but he works here at weekends. He’s a waiter in one of our coffee shops.’
