THE Best of Bolton, headed by Faz Patel, are extending their arm to help local businesses stay alive during the second national lockdown.
The Best of Bolton helped local businesswoman Sushma Solanki of Sushma’snacks adapt so that her events catering business and cookery classes could survive during the previous lockdown.
Through their sister company Kinec Studio, the Best of Bolton, created a website for Sushma and managed her social media accounts to get her business back on track and she is set up for the lockdown ahead.
Sushma said: “I have had to change all my business to online to survive and I have changed my website, which is where Faz and the team came in to help me adapt to sell my spice racks.
“I was thinking about shutting down, until Faz helped me. I never thought it was going to carry on because I didn’t know where I was going to go. Now I’m doing the virtual classes and selling my spice racks. I can’t thank Faz enough.”
Faz Patel, CEO of The Best of Bolton said: “We are here to help and support local businesses as much as we can, at a fraction of the price of a normal marketing firm.
“The last thing a business should do now is stop their marketing.
“It is vital you don’t go silent. We are ready and willing to help anyone we can. We have reduced the price to as low as possible.
“For those businesses really struggling, there are bursary options available from us.”
The company is offering a range of services for a fraction of their original price to help local businesses thrive during this difficult time.
‘Buy local’ is the tag line of the franchise, and that is exactly what the company are urging the Bolton public to do. It’s not just a tag line for the present but for the future as well.
