The course is formal yet we don’t really like to take ourselves seriously. A bit of fun in business is necessary! so just come absolutely relaxed, also wearing comfy clothes (aprons provided). Also make sure you don’t eat much the day before, as you will be eating loads once here!

BEFORE THE TRAINING COURSE: Please prepare & bring as much info as you can about your business plan, model, desired location, setup, branding etc. Basically, the more you feed us with this information, the better we will be able to assist you. We run a very successful catering business as a sister company to Pancake World and are very experienced caterers all around. We used to own a creperie shop in Cardiff too, successfully creating it from scratch and selling it in 2013. We work with hundreds of individuals or larger chains in both the UK and the USA and have experience in kitchen design, premises modelling, menu design, HR, tax affairs etc.

IMPORTANT! Please make sure you tell us whether you intend to setup a mobile or fixed premises business. The studio setup is a little different if you intend to do one or the other so we need to know that before hand, AS WELL AS TELLING US if you intend to serve only sweet stuff, savoury stuff, or BOTH in your future premises. This will help us shop accordingly and not waste any money!

We are located @ The Pancake Studio, Pancake World Ltd, 14A Poundfield, Llantwit Major, CF61 1DL. Please make a note of this address. When you arrive, park on the large carpark opposite the train station. You will see a blue & white coffee shop called ‘COAST’. Opposite this one, within the precinct, there is a dark-red restaurant called IL VESUVIO. We are located on the first floor of this restaurant.

We look forward to seeing you very soon!
