A FORMER teaching assistant who decided to opt for a career change is already seeing her hard work pay off.
Gwendolyn Bills recently opened Graze in Wheelgate, Malton, a café and takeaway business.
Graze offers home-cooked food on the premises as well as a local delivery service.
Gwendolyn, who lives in Broughton, said she had been working in schools for a number of years and was looking for a change of direction.
“The opportunity came up for the premises and as I have always wanted to run my own business I decided to go for it,” she said.
“I have given the shop a new look and offer home-cooked food which people can sit in and eat or takeaway.”
Gwendolyn said a lot of their recommendation has been by word of mouth.
“Business has been brisk with the tailor-made salad boxes being one of the highlight’s of our trade,” she said.
“We use many local suppliers for our food, while our cakes are made on the premises.”
Gwendolyn said they also had two delivery vehicles which could take breakfasts and lunches to outlying businesses.
“We have had some every positive feedback both for the food and the ambience of the shop,” she said.
“It has been a steep learning curved but it has been good and has made me realise I made the right move.
“I have fantastic part-time members of staff who are very talented and dedicated. Together we have had a great start to our trading year, and we hope to build up our business here in Malton.”
