Client introduces new sushi restaurant to Cheltenham

19 August 2013

There is a fresh buzz around Cheltenham with the opening of our client’s new sushi bar this month.

Co-owners Emma Graveney and Yu Wang saw an opportunity for Japanese-styled cuisine and the idea for an eatery, Kibou Sushi, was born.

Our commercial teams helped with the setting up of the business and the new lease for the premises in Regent’s Street.

One of our commercial property partners who worked closely with Emma, commented:

“We have enjoyed helping with the legal side of the new business venture. Cheltenham is fortunate to have many good eateries already. Cheltonians are now even more spoilt for choice with another type of cuisine to sample and enjoy. I have eaten there a few times and can vouch for how delicious the sushi is.

“We wish Emma and her team the very best for a successful future.”

Emma Graveney, commented:

“We have been overwhelmed by the wonderful reaction of our diners.

“Working with Willans was one of the smoothest legal processes I have been involved with. They were amazingly helpful at all times – virtually day and night.”
 

Our lawyers, many of whom are rated for their work in leading independent legal directories, act for numerous businesses from start-ups and entrepreneurs, to local and nationally well-known producers and retailers in the hotel, restaurant and leisure sector.

Willans is helping to provide further support for local food, farming & drink talent by sponsoring this year’s Taste of Gloucestershire awards. The awards, which have 14 categories, celebrate the best of Gloucestershire’s farmers, producers, retailers, pubs, farm shops and restaurants.

For more information on the work we do please contact any of our lawyers.
