Business owner Harry set up Kinetic Kitchen in 2014 to sell ketogenic drinks and snacks. Alongside non-executive director Alex, he saw the business grow through sales to retailers and their own coffee truck.
The coronavirus pandemic changed the way Kinetic Kitchen was able to operate and the owners saw that they needed to change its business model to survive.
Alex said: “The Growth Hub provided lots of support, guidance and advice on how we could gear things up slightly differently in order to cater for a different type of market that now exists.”
The Growth Hub team worked with Kinetic Kitchen to set up and grow new online sales, helping them to develop their website through the Trading Better Online programme. The Accountancy Support programme also enabled the business to develop its long-term financial thinking. Kinetic Kitchen also benefitted from the Growth Hub’s business network across the catering and hospitality sector.
Harry said: “They’ve given us that comfort and support to know what we need to do this year, next year and long term.”
“The Growth Hub has been fantastic with the support it’s given for Kinetic Kitchen. The growth that we’ve seen as a business has to be lying hand in hand with the support we’ve been given.”
“I would absolutely recommend the Growth Hub. The team helped us enormously, especially with the pivot of the business. Programmes like Trading Better Online programme can make the customer journey much more effective and enjoyable.”
