Four and Twenty Restaurant

Partner: Enterprise Answers (Cumbria)
Region: North West
Location: Penrith
Programme: Enterprise Finance Guarantee

Four & Twenty is a family run restaurant based in Penrith which was started in 2014. It has achieved great recognition, including holding the number one position on Trip Advisor for the first three years after opening. The business has created numerous skilled positions.

The founders need finance to fully transform, refurbish and equip what was a bank into what they wanted to be Penrith’s premier dining destination.

With assistance and guidance from their Business Lending Manager at British Business Bank partner Enterprise Answers, they were provided with a loan of £34,300 under the Enterprise Finance Guarantee programme. This enabled the business owners to complete the refurbishment of the premises.

Four and Twenty Partner, Edward Cowin says “We were lacking in security to convince the bank to invest in us and through Enterprise Answers were able to secure the finance we needed under the British Business Bank’s Enterprise Finance Guarantee programme. As a result we have been able to realise our vision and unleash our potential to create a leading dining destination in the town.”
