GREENOCK Company Opening Hospitality Training Centre

REGENERATION company Riverside Inverclyde has attracted Stepwell and its trading subsidiary Fresh as its newest tenant at Lynedoch Industrial Estate in Greenock. 

Social enterprise company Stepwell required a centralised industrial unit to support its current Fresh coffeehouse locations in the Oak Mall, Greenock and Kempock Street, Gourock, as well as its own future growth plans.

The space at Lynedoch will accommodate a training coffeehouse, development kitchen, a versatile hospitality training space as well as storage/distribution. 

Stepwell's expansion is focussed on delivering quality hospitality training for unemployed and more vulnerable young people as well as industry partners.  

Angela Darroch, head of business at Stepwell, said: “Fresh is enjoying a period of success and continued growth and, as a result, we are delighted to be able to commit to taking critical space at Lynedoch Industrial Estate. 

"This will enable us to expand the services we currently offer and continue to train people to the highest standards in barista sills, customer service and catering.  

"Riverside Inverclyde has worked closely with us over the past year and we thank them for their support in making this happen so quickly.”

Stepwell has committed to a three-year lease at Lynedoch, taking 1,603 sq ft in total. It is expected to deliver up to two additional jobs as a result of the growth and will offer training facilities to 100 people per year.

Andrew Bowman, head of business investment at Riverside Inverclyde, said: “Riverside Inverclyde is delighted to welcome Stepwell to Lynedoch Industrial Estate. The facilities are perfect for what Fresh is aiming to deliver, and their expansion plans are something that ri has been supportive of throughout the past year.  

"We wish Angela and her team continued success and look forward to helping further food and drink businesses to grow and invest in Inverclyde.”

Riverside Inverclyde will be turning its attention to filling the remaining two units at Lynedoch Industrial Estate.
