There are an incredible number of small business who have made their moves towards setting up independent start-ups and street food outlets. So how, apart from the quality of the food and service on offer, do they stand out from a very large crowd?

The answer may well be found in a recent report on the Startups website, Why the FHRS could be the key to success for your food start-up.

The article by Megan Dunsby states some eye-opening statistics.

“In 2014 the food and hospitality industry was valued at £46.6bn, with the sector expected to grow by 2.2% between 2014 to 2019, taking its net worth to over £56bn. Coupled with changing consumer trends in favour of more varied food choices, it’s easy to see why a growing number of start-ups are choosing to take the plunge and launch their own food business.”
