Katy Rodgers, Artisan Dairy

Based in Fintry, Katy Rodgers Artisan Dairy is a family business ran by mother, Katy, and her two daughters Helena and Catherine. Ongoing product development is critical in order to
compete successfully in the FMCG market. Whilst the business had received support from Business Gateway on other aspects, Business Gateway identified Specialist Support as an opportunity to support the business’ future growth aspirations.

The support provided by Business Gateway Stirling has been invaluable at helping us focus and has contributed significantly in driving our business objectives. We are very excited about the future and see Business Gateway as a key part of our journey.

Kilgannon Motors
Bannockburn-based Kilgannon Motors/Kilgannon Car Sales repair and maintain motor vehicles, as well as buying and selling cars. The business owner was looking for advice on how to improve its social media engagement, and overall web presence, including website overhaul. They also needed guidance about business strategy and overall marketing strategy

We have received fantastic support from the Business Gateway Expert Help Scheme. The advice has helped us to come up with a clearer business strategy, allowing us to diversify the business and improve the overall operation of our family-run business. We now have a clearer marketing strategy, social media presence and new website which has resulted in an increased client base. This support has meant that we have not only managed to safeguard jobs, but we have also successfully created jobs and increased turnover
