I recently asked Ben a few questions about his business…Here’s what he had to say.
What’s the most rewarding part of running your business?
The most rewarding part is making endless memories for both children and adults alike.
What’s the most challenging part?
There are no difficult parts.. every part from consultation stage to the big party itself is an amazing task!
Any plans to expand on the horizon?
Expanding as we speak with a healthy looking diary and bookings coming in faster than ever.
Any advice to young people looking to start their own business?
Keep your mind open and remain adaptable to each and every client.
Finally, what’s your favourite thing about Torbay?
My favourite thing about torquay is the support between local businesses.. oh….and the views help too!
Thanks a lot Ben and we hope you have a great 2022! Remember, for any kind of celebration or party in the Bay, get in touch with Ben here.
