An article in todays Citizen about David Purchases plans for opening a Toastie Shop in the dock getting the green light from the planners is great news.
I am really happy about this, from both a business perspective as I agree with David, in that “This business will hopefully be used, not just by visitors but by the community and I hope it will be a benefit to the Docks in the future” but also from a personal perspective, seeing a friend being able to pursue his idea to fruiting and obviously really enjoying himself doing it.
He has spent all weekend doing customer research, getting people opinion and doing taste tests, and you can see that he is really driven to make it a success.
There are always going to be some objections, but its great that the Planners saw the light and it even received praise from them.
So, well done David, though all the hard work is still to come, I’m looking forward to tasting the product 🙂
