Support Your Independent Restaurants

Posted on

As most of you will know – this summer has seen a massive influx of National Restaurant Chains. This leaves the small independents of our town struggling to hold their own. So just a few facts for you to consider when deciding where to have your next meal out:

  • A lot of national chains have nominal national suppliers therefore are not using local suppliers.
  • Due to the sheer number of restaurants in Harrogate, finding good staff is difficult – many chain restaurants are bringing staff in from other towns. The employment requirements in Harrogate are not being supported.
  • A lot of these restaurants are having million pound fit outs but again are using national nominated suppliers rather than local tradesmen.

These chains often price a lot of small independents out of the market, they have huge buying power and can offer very enticing offers to the consumer that small independents cannot compete with.
