Sushi is one of the fastest growing food trends in the country and Little Lotus is proud to offer hand crafted delicious meals from their kiosk.
The company will receive a rate rebate to the tune of £15,000 under the City Centre Growth Zone scheme which offers applicants rate relief if they create jobs within the city centre.
Little Lotus Sushi and Bento is creating six new jobs for their new bar, which follows on from the success of their bars in Huddersfield and Chelmsford.
Bradvent Supply Services Ltd who install ductwork and supply fans and accessories are moving into new premises in Enterprise House in Duncan Street.
They have grown significantly over the last eight years , dealing with more clients and tendering for more projects. They are therefore gong to take on two trainee project engineers.
A further company, Stafforce Recruitment, decided to look for larger premises as they too are a growing, thriving business.
Part of the Nicholas Associates Group, they work with other local Bradford businesses to recruit industrial and engineering staff and were based at Salem Street.
They have now moved premises to North Parade because of the regeneration of the area.
Just a couple of years ago, North Parade was shortlisted for the City Category in the British High Street of the Year, testament to the independent cafes and bars springing up around that area.
Two new jobs are being created and they are to receive £22,000 rate rebate grant funding.
Coun Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “We’re pleased to be able to support these businesses which are creating new jobs in the city.
“They are all thriving businesses and this scheme allows them to further grow and prosper, boosting the local economy and providing a wide range of employment for people.”
