He revealed to me that the owners of the site is still the Jarvis family who ran the butchers a long time ago and who donated him that photo. Interrupted a couple of times by clients, we managed to spend some time together to talk about his business, his site and Egham. The people who had it before us had it for about 18 months and before them, there were other people who had it for 10 years.
Before then I think it was still a butcher. We are now building up the trade and this is a very slow process.
We are part of the business community and all the other businesses are very supportive. There are a few big chains, but there are still a few small independent businesses. We built that into our business plan. It is going to take time to get a good reputation. Obviously you get a good reputation by providing a good service and good products at a very good price.
It is a slow growth but we were prepared for it. We thought that we were going to have lots of students. We have to find our little place in Egham.
We need to build our customers, a little core of regular customers. Every single customer is valuable.
If we have even just 50 customers but regulars, this is already enough to go on for us. I feel that there is a sense of community. Some of the other owners come here to buy lunch and we use their services too, such as the printing shop or the dry cleaner…. I think that Egham is a strange slip: students and older people, not many in-between people. It is hard to say if Egham is improving or getting worse.
