The whole team here at PCPM is buzzing at the moment after learning that we have been shortlisted for a prestigious business award.

We’ve been named as a finalist in the ‘Scale-up Business’ category at the Federation of Small Businesses’ 2018 Celebrating Small Business Awards for the East Midlands region.

The awards showcase the best small businesses across the region, offering national recognition. Expert small business judges will select category winners in 12 areas across the UK.

The regional winners will then go on to contest the national award in each category later in the year.

The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards promote and recognise innovation, enterprise and accomplishment amongst the UK’s 5.5 million-strong small businesses and the self-employed sector.

The Scale-Up Business category is all about showcasing businesses, such as ours, which have taken a leap to a whole new level, demonstrating true entrepreneurial spirit and growth.

The way we have grown the business on the back of our work with national restaurant chains like McDonald’s and Pizza Express caught the eye of the judges.

Our Managing Director, Peter Crown, said: “We’re delighted to have made the shortlist. There are some fantastic businesses which do great things across the East Midlands and beyond and the standard of competition is high, so to make it to the final of this category is fantastic.

“We’ve had a great year, which has seen our team and our turnover grow, and we’re looking forward to more of the same in 2018. Winning this award would be the perfect way to cap off this phase of our journey, but we’re just pleased to be shortlisted and are looking forward to the awards dinner to find out if we’ve won.”

We’ll find out our fate on 8 February, at the awards event in Nottingham. Wish us luck and watch this space for details.
