A growing reputation for Cornmarket Deli

A HUSBAND and wife team who invested their life savings into a Worcester delicatessen have been able to expand their business after receiving a grant from the City Council.

The Cornmarket Deli, owned by Amanda and Duncan Turner, is re-opening its doors on Thursday (November 24)  following a full refurbishment, allowing the couple to fulfill their vision of creating a deli which offers products that aren’t available anywhere else in the city.

However, in order to do so, the premises needed new flooring, lighting and counters which were over 20-years-old, and there was no space for customers to sit down and eat.

The £2,997 business growth grant the couple successfully applied for from the City Council, which they also match-funded, paid for the full refurbishment.

Amanda Turner said: “We make all of our fresh products in-house, supporting local producers by using local foods wherever possible and have a range of locally produced cheeses, jams and chutneys, honeys, beers and ciders.

“We also offer a range of high quality, artisan foods from some of the best producers in the country.”

Coun Geoff Williams, cabinet member for Economic Prosperity and Growth, said: “Small and new businesses are the life blood of Worcester, and supporting them is a key priority for the City Council.
