Yianni Papoutsis was the co-founder of the Meatliquor. He started as one of the first street food trucks in the U.K., the Meat Wagon. Yianni was doing street food before it was fashionable and explained why the U.K. just doesn't have street food like they do in the U.S. 

After teaming with Scott Collins and opening a pop-up restaurant, they opened thirteen restaurants, including twelve in the U.K. and one in Singapore (now closed). 

It was so good to talk to Yianni about his thoughts on the current COVID pandemic. His views on the future of the industry and our ideas on how the government could probably help with the long-standing issues in the hospitality sector. 

Yianni is now a consultant in the hospitality and entertainment industry.
