Inspiring Leader - The Future Of Food
Salon - Panel
Patta Arkaresvimun is a woman of all trades. In the past, she has worked as a Visual Trend Analyst and Creative Director for both Philips Designs and Gibson Innovations in Hong Kong. After over a decade in the industry, Patta left the corporate world to pursue her love for fresh, authentic food. She saw a crucial need for food entrepreneurs to have the resources and support they require when launching their small businesses. With this knowledge, she was inspired to create BiteUnite Hong Kong in 2015, a company aimed to bridge the gap between home cook and chef, all while offering a safe community space that allows food entrepreneurs to realize their dreams. To much success, BiteUnite has become a community gathering space for chefs and foodies alike, a place to grow careers, and gather over a delicious meal. Originally from Thailand, Patta has called Hong Kong home for the last 10 years. The city’s high rent and limited space inspired her to create a business that could help budding entrepreneurs and passionate chefs find success. Now, she’s made the jump into the Western Hemisphere to settle in San Francisco with her husband and two children, to create the same community in the States. San Francisco’s diversity and love of delicious cuisines was a natural next step for BiteUnite. Patta is determined to offer the same valuable amenities to individuals looking to make their food business dreams come true in San Francisco.
