Firm supports expansion at The Balloon Tree
A North Yorkshire entrepreneur has extended the café facility at his farm shop after accountancy and business advice firm Hunter Gee Holroyd helped him to secure a corporate finance deal.
Matthew Machin's farm shop, The Balloon Tree, is located at Gate Helmsley, near Stamford Bridge and the businessman, who has been the managing director for more than ten years, requested advice on financing options from Hunter Gee Holroyd.
Mark Grewer (pictures left), the York firm's head of corporate finance, produced a cash flow forecast and business plan for Machin to present to his bank. Grewer also dealt with any financial queries raised by the bank on the successful funding application.
Matthew Machin (right) said: "It is amazing to see my vision become a reality. The extended café with its bi-fold doors opening onto the landscaped garden brings the outside into the café all year round, which more of our customers can now enjoy."
The café has doubled in size with seating now available for 45 customers, a new kitchen, easier access to the children's play area and improved space for buggies.
