Mother and Daughter Get Started in South Beach

Posted in Start

Mum and daughter, Enid Musson and Tanya Razey, are just two of the entrepreneurs helping to regenerate Blackpool’s up-and-coming South Beach area.

Enid and Tanya both decided to become their own bosses and set up their own businesses, which are only round the corner from each other.

Fresh Living on Hill Street (off Waterloo Road) combines Enid’s passion for fragrances, candles and scents whereas Tanya’s beauty salon named after the owner offers a range of treatments including nails, spray tans and waxing.

Enid said: “It is such a pleasure to know that my daughter Tanya is so close at 99-101 Waterloo Road fulfilling her dream to open her own beauty salon.

“I have always found the South Beach community to be resilient and I can see the improvements being made with the number of new business starts.”

Tanya, a fully qualified beauty therapist, believes that she has found the perfect premises near Blackpool South railway station as it can capitalise on commuters and locals alike.

Tanya explained: “This is my first business and I have already got a really good trading base of lovely clients, which makes every day a joy. There is a real good feeling about the area these days, and I just know I will be successful.”

Cllr Mark Smith, Blackpool Council’s Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development, said: “It’s fantastic to see both Enid and Tanya turn their dreams into a reality by setting up their own businesses. Entrepreneurship obviously runs in the family.

“Enid and Tanya will continue to develop their businesses thanks to ongoing support from Blackpool Council’s Get Started team.

“We are really keen to work with businesses in the South Beach area to make this into a thriving shopping area for residents and visitors alike.

“90% of the businesses that Get Started has helped in the last two years are still operating and in some cases, doing very well indeed. That’s because businesses can still benefit from our expert advice and support even after they are up and running.”
