One of our customers, Yadu Kadhka is enjoying the fruit of his success at his restaurant Vedic – Vegan & Vegetarian food on Market Street in Hyde. The restaurant specialises in Indian food and has gone from strength to strength since our business advisor Gavin got involved.
Yadu came to see our Tameside advisor Gavin Williams as he had an idea for a restaurant and had secured a loan, but he lacked the knowledge in how to run the business on a day to day level and manage the finances. He had a passion for cooking and wanted to make this venture a success. As he had worked in kitchens in previous roles, he felt confident that his food would be up to standard.
Gavin could see how passionate Yadu was and as Gavin had worked in the hospitality industry before; he was able to share that knowledge with Yadu in order to launch his new restaurant in the right way. Yadu struggled with the idea of managing the stock, the staff wages and taking on the role of both chef and restaurant owner, as he had no previous experience with self-employment.
Yadu says “I started out knowing I needed a loan and premises but I hadn’t thought about all of the day to day things such as prep time, wastage, portion control, menus and stock levels. I got advice on all of this and that is why I’m up and running now."
Vedic hosted a launch event to officially open the business to the public and allow them to try the menu at a reduced rate which was a great success and was covered in the local news.
Yadu is now trading successfully and thanks Gavin for being a great help in this success and ensuring the restaurant runs smoothly day to day and month on month. Gavin has also been to eat at the restaurant several times and highly recommends the food.
