A Poulton couple have found a switch from catering to care is proving a recipe for success.
Guy and Anita Jenkinson are well known to Poulton residents having run the popular French gourmet take-away Monsieurs for 18 years.
But the couple were ready for a change from the long hours and in March this year the restaurant was converted and opened as Mobility Sure.
Guy said: “We used to run the Rawcliffe Hall Caravan and Camping Park but I have always loved catering so we started Monsieurs which has been very successful.
“But the area is over supplied with take-aways and restaurants and although I believe in competition there comes a point when the market is saturated. The hours were long too, up to 80 a week, so we decided to change.
“I had looked around to see what Poulton needed, something that would be useful and that would give us a good business.
“There was a need for mobility items in the area so we researched it thoroughly and opened as an independent.
“We are really enjoying it.
“It has rekindled my love of sales.
“It was always our aim to provide a service that gives something back to the community over and above selling products.”
The 700 sq ft showroom stocks a variety of mobility products from walking sticks and helpful devices to mobility scooters such as the new foldable Minimo mobility scooter from TGA, that are supported by professional advice and guidance.
Guy and Anita work with an occupational therapist so that the correct product is always recommended to meet an individual customer and they have a highly skilled engineer on site for repairs and servicing.
