He sold the business at the end of February 2013. I trained new owner & staff & left during June 2013.

Phone: (011) 440-9581
Mrs. Bollini or Rina (for reference)
Fabulous Delicatessen, restaurant & catering company which have been very successful since June 1986. I left the Bollini family with more achievements in my pocket. They employ approximately 50 staff members and it was truly a great experience. Tortellini was rated "The best Italian restaurant in Johannesburg". My responsibilities included: training of staff, stock controls, interviews, management: front & back of house (waiters, bar & kitchen), selling techniques & VIP service to all customers. I left the business because it was family owned. Dad, mom & daughter disagreed on many matters and it created conflict.
