Meet Paul

Paul Leach

Hospitality Consultant, Certified Exit Planning Advisor and

Licensed Broker in NSW, VIC, SA and QLD

Hello, I am Paul Leach


I work with busy cafe owners to help them to grow, run and sell their businesses'


I grew up in the food business, my parents owned two very successful restaurants and I remember working (or a least thinking I was) in them from a very early age. All through school I knew I wanted to go in to the hospitality industry and the day that I started at College could not come quick enough.

In 1993 I opened my first Cafe called “Hogarth’s” and that is really where it all began. 


Since then I have built up and sold nine food businesses and loved every minute (well most of it) and learnt a lot about how the sale process works.


When running and selling my businesses I always felt that there had to be a better way to get support throughout the journey and that is where GSE Business Consultants and The Six Steps to Sale have come from. 


I am now using the experience I gained in starting, running and selling all those businesses to help people like yourself to do the same. It works well for me as I am still involved in the industry and it helps my clients by them avoiding some of the mistakes that I made when selling my first couple of cafes – Win Win!


I would love the opportunity to show you more about how this approach can help you to grow, run or sell your business.
