Our story
Headed by Andrew Scott, Victus is a hospitality and catering consultancy which was established in 2014 to help, support and guide both new and well-established businesses. SMEs are what we know and love, so we specialise in working with small to medium sized privately owned businesses.

After 12 years working in a variety of corporate and boutique hotels, restaurants, pubs, bistros and bars, Andrew has spent the last 13 years owning and operating a number of multi-award winning catering companies.  With bags of experience, Andrew wanted to use his invaluable knowledge, skill and expertise to help hospitality businesses in need of a helping hand.

While hard work and flair have reaped many rewards, Andrew has had his fair share of knocks, challenges and disappointments along the way. One of his ventures pushed him right to the edge, but Andrew is no quitter and has instead used this experience to achieve success elsewhere.

You can now benefit from our experience, both positive and negative, to help drive your business forward.

“Andrew’s unique style – a potent combination of straight talking with a wicked sense of humour – makes the sometimes difficult process of change much more enlightening and enjoyable.”

We have written and published the self-titled book “Victus” in which we share our best anecdotes, ups, downs, ins and outs of working in the hospitality industry. Grab your copy here (also available in all good book stores) for tips, insights, guidance and plenty of banter. And if you don’t like it, well you can always use it for kindling for your fire or to right that wonky table in your restaurant…
