Hi, I am a sole trader. I have recently entered into a 10 year lease for a property within Blackpool town centre.
The property was previously a butchers and had been shut for around 5 years. To be honest the property had become a bit of an eyesore.
I am in the process of renovating the shop and it already is starting to have a positive impact on the area.
I decided to open a sandwich shop due to the high demand in the area. As Blackpool is a tourist town then there is a gap for more affordable healthy food.
I am married with 2 children and my wife works. Although the intention was to be a stay at home dad I didn't feel comfortable not working as I have always provided for the family.
I just need a small amount of funds to complete the last of the works and purchase stock so that I can open the doors.
The property is business rate exempt so the overheads are minimal.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this
