From making all of the food in a domestic kitchen, Ciara moved into her first small commercial kitchen in order to grow the business after 6 months. With interest expressed from some retail stores, Ciara bought some barcodes & label paper for the home office printer and set about selling sushi in stores! The labelling was basic, cut into strips using a sharp Stanley knife, but it was a start and did the job! Most importantly the products tasted great and it wasn’t long before more shops came on board.
Sushi is pretty labour intensive to make and it reached the point where the business had grown but all the money was going straight back in. A successful funding application to the Wicklow County Enterprise Board and support from the bank allowed Ciara to invest in some capital equipment to help the business become more cost effective, without compromising on product quality or the artisan nature of the food.
