Small Business Local Buzz winner: Habibi Kitchen

1 min read

Small Business Local Buzz is now well under way and more than 450 small businesses have entered the competition to date. We are delighted to announce our second winner

Congratulations to Habibi Kitchen from Glasgow, the second winner of this year’s Small Business Local Buzz competition! See their entry here.

Habibi Kitchen makes colourful, creative and wholesome foods from the Middle East and beyond. Inspired by founder Mel’s passion for good food, travel and culture, Habibi Kitchen has been trading for the last eight months, taking part in events, farmers markets and pop-ups all over Glasgow.

Habibi Kitchen is unique in helping to share culinary experiences picked up on Mel’s extensive travels with the people she meets in her community and cooks for. Indeed, the authentic, vibrant foods she creates are sometimes difficult to find elsewhere!

Mel harbours another dream, though: to help young people struggling to find a job or suffering with mental health problems. A one-time charity worker who studied psychology and psychiatry, Mel understands the value of a good job to an individual’s mental wellbeing and confidence and would love to be able help out when the business is slightly more established.

Having started with a simple, nameless stall last summer, the £1,000 cash prize will now allow Mel to spend more time in a professional catering kitchen for her growing business, among other things:

Mel said:

“I am now able to plan where Habibi Kitchen will be popping up over the summer. I can start cooking and potentially get some extra help sooner than expected. I am excited just thinking about it!”
