The summer has been full of outdoor events ranging from park runs, food and drink experiences, music gigs and family festivals. Up and down the country weekend crowds are gathering to enjoy the very best entertainment available and the sunshine is a real added extra!

Some well organised businesses are fully prepared to take their offering to the consumer. Stanley Street, based near Oundle, is a great example of this. Started in 2015, chef Stanley, applied his training as a pâtissier to branch out and bring the rising demand for street food to the masses. When travelling abroad, he would always take a cookery class in each new country, so as to add to his collection of fresh dishes to create for outdoor eating. His menu now includes Moroccan lamb tagine, traditional falafel, massaman beef curry, raclette, and Lebanese chicken tawook. He adjusts his menus according to the seasons and availability, using local produce where possible.

Charles & Dean were able to assist Stanley when he recognised the need to increase his fleet of vehicles enabling him to attend more events and cater for more festival goers. Our broker worked closely with Stanley to understand his business needs and financial preferences and in turn was able to arrange vehicle finance with the most suitable lender.

It is great to see so many people enjoying the Stanley Street menu and witnessing the summer success of a forward thinking SME!
