Having grown up in the family business, Sandeep Bains is well versed in what is needed to create a successful enterprise. However, not many retailers submit their degree thesis on Tesco and Marks & Spencer. Andrew Lowry reports
Sandeep Bains isn’t a man who does things by half. Confronted with a near-derelict building containing what was left of a pub and a restaurant, both of which had failed disastrously, he invested £100,000 to turn the place into Simply Fresh Faversham.
A year since opening, the store already has an average basket spend of £7.40 – which Sandeep is quick to point out is brought down by school children buying cheap sweets. And what’s more? He’s only 23.
