We would like to invite you to this month's Business Growth Lunch which will be held at the Red Hall Hotel in Bury.

This event will feature guest speaker Paul Morris, founder and managing director of The Chocolate Café - manufacturer and wholesaler of artisan chocolates. Paul will prove that not only is chocolate one of life’s great pleasures but it can also be an ingredient for business growth.

Paul Morris, Founder and MD, The Chocolate Café


 Paul Morris is founder and managing director of the Chocolate Café, an independent coffee shop and artisan chocolate manufacturer in Ramsbottom, as well as being the driving force behind the town’s annual chocolate festival.

Despite the challenge of starting up during the last recession, the company has thrived and collected a string of awards, including gold medals at The Great Taste Awards and the Manchester Food and  Drink Festival.
The annual Ramsbottom Chocolate Festival is now in its eighth year and attracts over 30,000 visitors from all over the UK. In 2012 it was awarded the Manchester Tourism Award for 'Best Small Festival'.

Paul is a 'career' entrepreneur who has launched numerous businesses across several industries. He is also a regular contributor to TV and local radio, talking on a wide range of subjects from independent and local businesses, social media, food and drink, and of course, chocolate!
