Have You Heard the News?
If we all got £1 for the number of times, we heard something along the lines of “in the current global ongoings” etc. there would be no need for financial aid or support for businesses. Unfortunately, due to the current global ongoings (see what we did there) right now small businesses are crying out for support to survive the uncertain period were about to experience. Thankfully, the C&W Recovery Grant is here.
What Is the Fund?
The Cheshire & Warrington Recovery Grant is here to support all SMEs across the regions affected by COVID-19. The 100% grant of a maximum of £5,000 can be used to help businesses build new business models, create and develop new products and target potential new markets or customers. The aim of this flexible grant is to protect jobs in the sectors and businesses most affected by COVID-19.
The following funding has been made available for grants by Cheshire & Warrington LEP:
- £175,000 for Visitor/Tourism economy businesses which equates to approximately 55 grants.
- £311,000 for the wider business economy, equating to roughly 95 grants.
This programme is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

If your policies and procedures aren’t in order, your business might not meet compliance. If you have ambitions to grow your business, you’ve got to make sure your operating procedures are in place to not only make any expansions smooth but that your chances of succeeding are increased.
Operational Efficiency Reviews
What good is it if you’ve set hours of your time to get your procedures in order, but they don’t positively affect your business in any way? Efficiency is a vital element of any business and making sure your procedures are optimised to increase efficiency and output could be the difference between your business sinking or swimming.
You’ve already got a million things to do each day, the last thing you want to be doing is spending hours on the payroll. Outsourcing your payroll frees up time on your end to concentrate on other duties you’ve got and given you one less thing to worry about, meaning your business benefits as a whole.

Know what you want to do but just not sure of the final point to really improve how good your products are going to be? With our experience we can give you reliable, honest advice on how best to develop your current or non-existing product range to maximise profits and add to the consumer’s journey taking them from just being interested in your goods to become another loyal customer.
We also offer support to people looking to turn their business into a franchise. If you’ve got a solid idea, how do you improve? Expand, of course! It’s okay to feel comfortable but to truly maximise your potential you sometimes have to take the leap and expand your horizons. This is where we come along and help you by utilising our existing experience. For those who don’t already have a brand, we also support people bringing their first idea to life as well as offering our own dark kitchen brands as potential outlets for people to begin their entrepreneurial adventure.
Speaking of franchising, we also offer shop fit design consultancy.

We design all our shops to be usable for dark kitchens to operate out of and also can provide our dark kitchen brands if you’re looking to add some variety to your workspace.
