Scottish food hamper business moves into caffs!

Photograph: The Edinburgh Festival is held in August and The Foodie Company hopes to capitalise on the fact that a lot of festival activity has moved from The Meadows area of Edinburgh to Holyrood Road where the company will open its first café.

The Foodie Company, launched two years ago as a food hamper business, has announced that it is branching out into the café business.

The company, run by 26-year-old Napier University graduate, Peter McLean, will open its first outlet early in August 2009 on Edinburgh's Holyrood Road, just in time to capture valuable business from Edinbugh festival goers.

It is estimated that the establishment of cafés will boost The Foodie Company's turnover from around £50,000 to £250,000.

In January this year, The Foodie Company bagged the Most Visionary Business Award at the BT Scotland Young Entrepreneur Awards.
