Entrepreneur spots a gap in the market
3:22pm Monday 7th July 2014 in News
A BUDDING entrepreneur has shown she has an eye for detail after setting up her own business.
Jenny Chapman opened up Jenny’s Place Settings with the support of the Prince's Trust after noticing people were having to travel to Newcastle to pick up table settings for special events.
The training which she undertook on the Exploring Enterprise Course during her BTEC Hospitality Course, at Middlesbrough College, formed the basis for the venture.
“I believe that there are people who want a professional service, where they can hire table settings of any size or quality from a local business. We will take all items away unwashed too, if required,” she said.
“Local people want a service that they can trust, from someone who knows about catering for a wide variety of events. Clients welcome the fact the place settings will be delivered directly to their premises and can be collected at a time to suit the event host.”
The member of the Stokesley Young Farmer already has a good business background being the founder of Incredible Edibles, which bakes and ices cakes for special occasions.
