I’ve only been here at Rosemood for about a month now but from what I’ve heard the idea of expanding to the UK has been around for far longer than I have. I was probably still taking myself way too seriously chugging sipping dirt-cheap wine at university when the idea was first put on the table. Rosemood was launched in France in 2010, followed by Germany in 2013 and the United Kingdom will join the ranks in 2017 (before total global domination in oh, let’s say 2020).
I think my co-workers have been briefed on the scope of launching Rosemood in the UK because about nine times out of ten when I pass someone in the hall they ask me how things are going with a sort of “poor American in over her head” look on their face. That look isn’t new to me having lived in France on and off for the last ten years and I’ve grown to recognise it and use the pity that goes along with it to my advantage. We call that being resourceful! All joking aside though, everyone here is on board and excited to take this leap of faith to the UK together, so here we come!
