About

After working in hospitality all his life and eight and a half years of building the Olive Tree Brasserie brand, Deans passion for creating modern greek food and drink specialities is shared equally with the enthusiastic young team that surrounds him.  

Dean and his team are working hard to ensure that greek dining is accessible and enjoyable for all. The aim of his eagerly awaited Kickstarter video marks the start of his mission to open his 3rd site in Chester.

‘There’s plenty of greek restaurants in the south of the country but there’s just not enough choice for modern greek food in the North.’

Dean was first inspired by the greek way of life where families and friends are brought together through their love of good food. Dishes take influence from the pastoral connections of the lamb to the honey, cinnamon and naturally growing nuts from the mediterranean that can be found in the flaky dessert Baklava.

The Olive Tree Brasserie proudly present traditional greek wines and beers alongside their range of modern cocktails. Mastiha, a resin gathered from the Mastic tree is added to a number of dishes and cocktails which adds a unique twist.

 Deans campaign already includes support from celebrities of the Coronation Street cobbles as well as Emmerdales very own Adam Barton. 

‘I feel very lucky to have received so many messages of support for this project. It’s something I hope fuels lots of interest as we look to support and develop the team whilst providing Chester with a truly wonderful dining experience’.

Risks and challenges

As with all new projects there are risks involved however we are confident that with two restaurants and one bar already up and running we can continue to grow and successfully develop our teams.

Deans experience over 8 and a half years has enabled him to overcome challenges and learn from previous trial and error practices.

If the target is not met then no money will be received by the Olive Tree Brasserie and no money will be taken from the person who pledges.
