Couple’s music firm grouped with 100 club
A prominent Ashford business has been highlighted as one of the country’s top 100 businesses, with its owners about to rub shoulders with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Right Track Music (RTM), based on the town’s Henwood industrial estate, was named in The Daily Telegraph as one of its highlighted companies in the lead-up to Small Business Saturday on December 5.
As a finalist, RTM will join the Small Business Saturday team at a reception in Downing Street with George Osborne.
The business is a wellrespected shop and school for all things musical, including music tuition, rehearsal space and recording rooms.
Su Bailey, co-owner of RTM with husband Chris, said: “We recently had the honour of the mayor presenting Chris with a certificate celebrating 20 years of service to Ashford.
“To be a SmallBiz100 finalist in the same year is brilliant.
“Running a business can be hard work, but every once in a while these things come along and make it so rewarding.
“As a small business we believe it is so important to support small, local businesses.
“Not only does it drive your local economy, you usually get better customer service, receive face-to-face service and we enjoy visiting other small shops.”
RTM is holding an open day and fundraiser on Saturday as part of the Royal Marsden Hospital Cancer Charity’s The Big C Challenge.
