"Continual growth, gradually filling every nook and cranny of the Wells Street site and with more double desking and headcount that took us to the limits of our health and safety criteria, it's at this point we realised as we neared the end of our lease that it was maybe time to find a new home."
Mike Chidzey was promoted to the role of Marketing Director; Mike joined as an intern fresh from University back in 2008, and remains at the company now taking charge of all marketing but with a distinct focus upon website content and SEO. Mike is a great example of somebody that has experienced a flourishing career with Chillisauce, and he's by no means an isolated case.
As with any growing business, one of the biggest pain points is in growing an IT infrastructure to cope with growth, and in the case of Chillisauce, this growth has been relentless. The investment in to technology hasn't stopped however it wasn't until the move to the current location on Maltby Street that CS5 was finally launched; a fully bespoke web based platform allowing for end to end sales and booking of events and event management. This project is ongoing and the system is always evolving, but this new infrastructure solved a lot of our problems and placed us in to a new league of our own.
