A London-based catering equipment distributor has launched a detailed advice guide to help individuals considering starting a hospitality business following the pandemic.
While some might think it’s not the best time to invest in the sector given the events of the past 12 months, kitchen specialist Chiller Box argues that there are opportunities to be had.
Its ‘How-to’ guide includes everything from searching for locations, venues, planning, approvals, access, utilities and more.
The company hopes it can serve as a handy checklist for those in the early stages of creating a start-up or looking to develop an existing business.
Alongside the guide, Chiller Box is sharing short information videos for those who prefer to digest guidance in this format.
Founder and managing director Marios Poumpouris said: “The business was born from an experience I had many years ago. There was little support out there when I wanted to create my first food business and it was hard to know where to begin. I decided to use my chartered surveyor and project manager experience, as well as my passion for hospitality to support others.
“Over the years we have helped hundreds of businesses to either begin or grow and there is nothing more heart-warming or satisfying than seeing someone’s business dreams become a reality.
“We pride ourselves on taking away the stresses and strains a design and build project can bring and this ‘How-to’ guide is that first step in providing reassurance to a new hospitality business owner. As an industry we need to encourage new concepts into the market place as hospitality has never needed more support or positivity.”
