DESPITE the economic downturn, businesswoman Mandy Naylor has expanded her portfolio of businesses to include premises in the centre of Cleckheaton.
Mandy, who runs a property business and the Little Tinkers private day care nurseries in Brighouse and Hipperholme, is adding a café bar to the mix at premises in Northgate.
Said Mandy: “These premises have stood empty for two years, so being able to start a new business and generate between eight and 10 jobs in the process is fantastic.
“I’m hoping that the café bar will bring some excitement to the area and become a place for people to meet and socialise, whether for business or pleasure.”
Mandy plans a contemporary and stylish fully-licensed deli and café offering great quality, good value, locally sourced and freshly prepared food.
The ground floor of the premises will be split into a deli takeaway, chill out lounge area and waitress service café and will initially open seven days a week from 8am to 8pm.There is also potential for the first floor to be converted into meeting or function rooms,.
The building is now undergoing refurbishment, which is due to be completed by the end of November – with an official opening taking place soon after that.
