Before Steve Hansen started his career in business, he spent 13 successful years at the Commonwealth Bank, then three years in accounting with a major mining company.
In 1983 he became a franchisee of the fast food chicken takeaway chain, Chicken World / Big Rooster.
By 1991, he had built up 5 profitable stores in the Chicken World / Big Rooster group and left that group to form his own franchise company called River Rooster which was rebadged with a vibrant modern image in 2003 as CHOOKS fresh & tasty.
Steve, as the Chief Chook, Managing Director and owner of the CHOOKS fresh & tasty Encouragement Centre, recently sold the CHOOKS network after reaching an impressive 42 stores.
He is now a partner and management consultant with Think DONE Management Consultancy. http://www.thinkdone.com.au/
