When two finalists from the Oldham Business Awards team up, you know it’s going to be a winner!
Corner House Cakes and The Old School BBQ Bus, both finalists in ‘The Young Business’ category at the Oldham Business Awards this year, have teamed up to give the customers at the bbq ranch the full package.
The Old School BBQ Bus have been open for nine months at their new site in Hollinwood, serving up some delicious bbq’d meals.
However, they didn’t offer desserts on the menu - and that’s where Corner House Cakes came in.
CHC has now moved into the outdoor restaurant as an independent business to complete the full menus and offer desserts.
The two businesses were introduced by Muzahid Khan at the Asian business leaders dinner for the Mayor of Oldham's appeal last year and have since built a trusting relationship and a friendship through being a part of the same networking group, Doing biz for yourself, hosted by Dawn Torrington.
Mark Fairley, owner of the OSBB, always envisaged small independent businesses coming into the ranch.
He wanted to give them the help and support they needed to get them up and running.
He said: "It’s all about supporting each other and giving back."
