Have you ever noticed that Edinburgh is full of amazing small and independent businesses? Whilst most of the well-known chains are represented throughout the city, it is the creativity and entrepreneurial streak that makes our businesses interesting. From bakers to brewers, lunches to lattes, boutiques to bars, there are fascinating businesses across the city just waiting to be discovered.
And here’s what I want to do to get the word out there more. Over the next couple of months Edinburgh Editor is going to be finding out more about some of these great businesses by getting to know the people and the stories behind them.
I’m looking to find out the who and the why behind some of our most creative and amazing small businesses, then sharing them with you so you can discover them too. Together we will uncover some amazing hidden gems that deserve a much greater audience.
How can you get involved? Easy – simply let me know your favourite local business that you think I should feature. Ideally they would…
– Be based in Edinburgh (or very nearby)
– have a slightly unusual/different take on what they do
– Be an independent, customer facing business (i.e. one where the public can walk in and buy something, like a bar, shop, coffee shop or hotel)
