Bobsy Blog 2019 No. 11: MANA! is 7 Years Young
Dear One & All,
On March the 1st 2019 MANA! Turns 7 years young! Quite a milestone in the fickle HK market, but more importantly for us it marks a certain maturity as an innovative & unique BRAND, not only coming out of HK but Globally too.
Our beloved city is not known for its local brands & has had a history of imitating rather than innovating. This is changing with the younger generations now & MANA! Is proud to be one of the strongest, maturest & relevant Brands on the scene. Our clientele base is getting younger & younger as HK’s GenZ is taking responsibility for its own consumption habits & Eco-footprint marking a stronger & clearer deviation from the Millennials and certainly from all generations before them.
We are proud to take part of the credit for launching our Food Revolution right here in the heart of The HK seven years ago. What distinguishes us from 99% of other F&B operators in the city & 99% of businesses in general is that we have never seen ourselves as F&B operators or business operators. We are change makers pro-actively inspiring CHANGE with every step we take, and no exceptions whatsoever, ever!
This approach to “Conscious Business” whereby business is seen as an agent for good & of service to the wider community has been slow to take off in our city, but times they are a changin’ and we are happy to be riding the crest of the wave, hell no we are happy to be generating the waves, using solar power of course! ;-)
After 7 years of no compromise with our integrity, it is time we gave ourselves a little pat on the back, and in the same breath we thank you our dear customers & supporters for being with us every step of the way.
The journey has been a tough one with bumps & pitfalls from day one, but it has been a most rewarding & fun one too. Here is to the next 7 years.
