Jo has called in at a local restaurant to get a taste of life as a small business owner.
Jo and Gary and Gilda Long, owners of Bishopbriggs’ Cafe Trevi
As part of a ‘buddy-up’ scheme with local businesses, Jo recently met with Gary and Gilda Long, owners of Italian family restaurant Cafe Trevi in Bishopbriggs.
The ‘Get Britain Trading’ scheme, from the Forum of Private Business, aims to foster greater understanding of small businesses amongst politicians, by getting them together to discuss their individual challenges.
Commenting, Jo said:
“Cafe Trevi is a great asset to Bishopbriggs, and owners Gary and Gilda have clearly made great efforts to provide such a cosy and welcoming place to eat. The ‘Get Britain Trading’ business buddy-up scheme is a brilliant idea, as these difficult economic times have certainly proved challenging for many firms.
“It was extremely valuable to hear first-hand about the issues facing Cafe Trevi from Gary and Gilda. While many people are excited about new tenants in Strathkelvin retail park, it’s important to remember and support our existing businesses in the town centre, and I wish Cafe Trevi continued success.”
Cafe Trevi is located at 6-7 Cross Court in Bishopbriggs and can be contacted on 0141 772 7207.
