A businesswoman from Northumberland has been named as number one in a list of entrepreneurs to watch out for this year.
Zoe-Lisa Blackler, from Ashington, topped the list compiled by the national press in Wales, where Zoe-Lisa now lives, having studied business and finance at university in Cardiff.
The article highlighted that the 35-year-old has successfully built up the multiple award-winning Café Junior business whilst juggling the pressures of being mum to three children.
Alongside this and the successful spin-off, Family Bistro, is a newly-opened complementary business – the family-friendly Gym and Junior gym facility, where adults can exercise with their children safely exercising or playing right in front of them.
Zoe-Lisa said: “2015 is an exciting year for us as we have refined our tried-and-tested business model and are franchising Café Junior and, shortly, Gym and Junior.”
