Did you know Manchester is currently the fastest growing city for new businesses. Over 3,600 new businesses started in the first quarter of this year alone. You can feel the buzz in the city from all the worker bees.
Last week we were invited by MastercardUK to be part of their StriveUK initiative which supports small business. They set up a pop up called Thrive Street in Manchester Arndale Centre. We were able to showcase Root2Ginger from the 8th-12th June in this busy venue.
The event was opened by Mary Portas, Queen of the High St who gave us great business advice and loved our branding and Our Story. She said 'come on Deanne pitch to me" so I did it was wonderful having feedback from her she was absolutely incredible.
It was lovely to receive so much support from Manchester people who already knew our brand and those who saw us for the first time.
To all those who love ginger, we are here for you.
