  • Best thing

    Customers
    Team
    Both are what drives myself and the business.
    Staff Discount is amazing and Uniform is free! What's not to love :)

    Worst thing

    Not a lot really, I would say the only thing to come to mind is the old systems. However these are all getting changed shortly :)
