Pop up food business creates 13 jobs

Firebird Hope is transforming its premium fast food business in Manchester using a £5K Start Up Loan from GC Business Finance.

Founder Dan Hope originally launched the business as a pop-up at the Hatch scheme in Manchester and has gone on to be shortlisted for the Best Street Food Trader award at the 2018 Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards. Having built a loyal and appreciative customer base, Dan is now moving to a permanent kitchen at acclaimed performance venue YES as well as operating Pepperoni Playboy, the in-house pizza counter at the same venue.

Future plans for Firebird Hope include establishing new trading locations that will enable the business to operate over permanent and pop up sites as well as developing home delivery and event catering operations across Manchester and the North West.
