Former TV Dragons Den entrepreneur Theo Paphitis has given a business boost to luxury travel agency Mulberry Travel.
This came after staff at the Chester-based agent tweeted him about the company during ‘Small Business Sunday’.
It was one of six weekly winners to gain a re-tweet by Paphitis to his 500,000 Twitter followers.
Mulberry Travel has seen a rise in social media followers and an increase in business enquiries as a result.
They are also profiled on the #SBS website (www.theopaphitissbs.com) that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.
The weekly initiative, set up by Paphitis in 2010, supports small businesses throughout the UK.
Agency founder Lee Higgins said: “We’re delighted to win and it’s great to have support from Theo. We’re very much looking forward to meeting him.”
Paphitis added: “We’re thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK.
“My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish Mulberry Travel every success.”
