So we built a tea room...
There's two ways to create a business, you pay a company to do everything or you plan and do it yourself.
Josephine's has been more than 2 years on the drawing board and along the journey we've used many local independent businesses at various stages.
Firstly, huge thanks to Tony Domleo, owner of TMD Interior Projects (www.tmdip.co.uk) for invaluable advice and project management. Years of shopfitting experience proved invaluable at many times, keeping the design and fitout on track and fully compliant.
Secondly to Mick of Heron Builders. If you can find him, and have an interesting enough project to tempt him then you've got yourself a completely reliable, hardworking and just all round amazing jack of all trades and master of them all.
Also big thanks need to go to Glen @ NBV for support and advice, Walaiti Rathore of Licensing Law Consultancy, Mark @ M-Signs in Daybrook, Lee @ Leebay Alarms, Simon Richmond Floorcoverings. Also thanks to Dave and Les.
Nottingham is a great city with some really great people who work hard to help people like us create businesses from nothing. Thanks.
