The GFK Co. Outlets Business Model was born out of the success of a “Pop Up” (Temporary Cafe) That was intended to open for only 10 Days and remained open on a short Term Two Year Lease.

You can read all about “Our Story” here to learn more about that journey!

Following that concept Doireann Barrett  of The GFK Co. Food & Wellness Brand was involved in a EU Funded Project for two years that helped her up skill, structure and fully document their Business Model which is trading since 2011!

Currently Doireann Barrett runs a Busy Production Kitchen which is actively in Production in Tralee Co. Kerry, producing quality Multi Award Winning Own Brand, Handmade Artisan Products on a made to order capacity.

Please note that the Original GFK Co. Cafe Deli “Pop Up” location did not renew their temporary Lease at their outlet at 3 Ivy Terrace, Tralee, Co. Kerry in late 2014. In September 2014 with New Rent Terms being Introduced and Rent Increases the Team decided not to renew the lease due to key factors including location and off street first floor access which did not fit in with the business model. At the time The GFK Co. got accepted on a High Potential Start Up Business Bootcamp at the same time and took this opportunity to document the business model fully. The GFK Co. were chosen as One of 6 Irish Companies to participate out of 180 Applicants and were mentored by Entrepreneurs such as Dragons Den Gavin Duffy, Bill Loai & Sean O’ Sullivan! Following on from that the team went onto an EU Funded Project to upskill and structure their concept.
