Papa Ganoush was founded as a street food stand by Son and Father; Tom and Tim.
We had to make a decision whether our 'hobby' could become our income. Being a slave to the "suit" became redundant and we made a plan.
Nearly 7 years on we find ourselves in our very first restaurant in Whitley Bay, built on the success of that decision way back in 2011, a permanent site at Hillgate Quays Hawkers Market, Gateshead and soon a new daytime outlet in Jesmond.
There were some very important changes that needed to take place; namely, persuading Sarah (Sister/Daughter) to lend her incredible organisational skills and experience to the business and getting Terri more heavily involved in the management of the restaurant…and they fell for it!
Its been a long time coming but we hope for as much success over the next seven years and then some.
This has not been possible without the incredible support of our customers over the years and we hope your patience with these new ventures is rewarding.
Tim & Tom
