How Stephen Hunt went from dish pig to pub baron

FIRST ACT SEASON 2 - EPISODE 7

Stephen Hunt knows a thing or two about the pub business. He began his journey as a humble dish pig and decades later is the proud owner of the Hunt Hospitality Group, where he employs over 300 people and turns over millions in revenue.

If you live in NSW’s Hunter region no doubt you’ve been inside one of his many pubs. But how does someone go from dishwasher to pub mogul? Stephen’s is a story of lifelong lessons learned on the job, backed up by business nous and a strong sense of community. It’s a marriage of passion and purpose and one hell of a business journey.
