Kin Vodka, The Crafty Baa and Sweetheart Candy Carts are ones to watch!

The judges really loved these Cumbrian family businesses and has deemed them ones to watch in future years when their journey along the family business road progresses a little further. Meet these businesses who are invigorating their local economy and starting to stir things up a bit!

Although very young, this new family business has all the hallmarks of future success. A great exemplar of seeing an opportunity, having a passion, having a family prepared to work hard together to get this new venture off the ground. They even have “Grandparents cutting front hedge, serving, waiting on, washing pots”
 Whilst a young business, they really go the extra mile and their attention to customer service has led to a dedicated customer base. A true family business who are proud of everyone’s contribution they shout from the rooftops about the family in their business.

This business has tenacity, with a strong sense of family values, fairness and long term thinking – although young they show a great attitude and definitely one to watch.

Congratulations to all three of these wonderful ‘Ones to Watch’ we look forward to seeing you on the night!  #CFBA2017 #WeAreCumbria
