Local business Mohujos is a Mexican restaurant that first opened in Billingham in 2007 and has benefited from the programme. After several years of success, the company then opened their second restaurant, on Stockton’s Riverside. The management at Mohujos felt they needed a new brand identity to reinforce their growing reputation. Wendy Sayers, owner of Mohujos was delighted with the support they received;

Setting up a new restaurant is a very expensive process. We knew that getting the marketing right was vital and we were delighted to have the advice and financial support of NBSL and the creativity of mm&d.

I would encourage more businesses to look at external funding and help create that budget that might not normally be available. We are a fairly small business that competes against some large restaurant chains, and this support has allowed us grow as a company.”
