2018 Category Star: Scott Graham, McLeish, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire

in association with Camelot

Scott developed a strategy to align the shop’s brand with health, catching customers attention by coinciding this with the introduction of minimum unit pricing and this year’s sugar tax. Having no fascia, Scott has to work harder to market the McLeish name. He invested in own-brand food to go and bakery packaging and a digital screen with tailored promotions to support this. When launching his bakery, Scott’s online giveaway post was viewed 25,000 times and sales quickly rose to £1,500 per week.
