NE businesswoman has more services covered

An award-winning Northumberland entrepreneur is expanding her business by rolling out a new service aimed at hotels and restaurants.

Sarah Pittendrigh runs multi-award-winning Simply Bows and Chair Covers, based on the County Durham and Northumberland border, and now has 12 franchises all over the UK, specialising in quality chair covers and table linen for weddings, balls and corporate events at high profile venues.

As the business continues to grow and thanks to demand, Simply Bows and Chair Covers is increasing its services to offer hotels and restaurants daily table linen and napkin hire to use in their dining rooms as well as for special events.

The service is already proving successful for Sarah’s franchisees around the UK as more restaurants and hotels look to outsource specific services, such as those related to table linen, to reduce costs and improve efficiency.

Sarah said: “This is a brand new service from Simply Bows and Chair Covers and already we’re working with restaurants and hotels up and down the country, providing them with a variety of table linen for everyday use. It’s a simple service but everything we provide is top quality and our service standards mean that our clients always have the exact linen to meet their needs, delivered on time.

“The new service has really happened by accident and I can’t believe I’d not thought of it sooner as it’s proving so popular because of the quality and service we can offer.”

Already this year Sarah, who is the current holder of the British Chamber of Commerce Most Promising New Business accolade, has added two new franchises- in Essex and North Northumberland with more in the pipeline- and has appeared in the Sunday Times advising other entrepreneurs about business start-up. In addition, Sarah has also been recruited by a national speakers’ agency to carry out speaking engagements at events around the UK.

Simply Bows and Chair Covers has seen demand for its services increase dramatically in the last year and now has franchises in locations such as Aberdeen, Cumbria, Lancashire, Berkshire and around the North East and Yorkshire working with luxury hotels, restaurants and other venues.
