The Albany is celebrating after being nominated for the Scottish Business Awards by its customers.
The business, based in Greenock, opened in May 2013 after formally being the Orangefield Baptist Church. Over the last 5 years, the business has gone on to become an integral part of the Inverclyde community.
The business focuses on three areas of community involvement with these areas now fully ingrained in the heart of the people both within the community and in the wider environment.
The Albany Academy provides children in the area with a variety of classes to help boost their confidence, health and social interaction.
The business currently provides classes in guitar, drama, gymnastics and its stage school, which covers musical theatre, singing, dancing and acting.
The staff are dedicated to providing a nurturing environment and are often given great feedback from parents who notice a boost of confidence in their children.
The Albany Café/Brasserie provides excellent, freshly cooked meals, snacks, afternoon teas and drinks. Customers really appreciate the extra length taken to ensure they have a lovely experience and its reputation has grown as one of the top places to eat and drink in Inverclyde.
The ground floor function suite is also available for private bookings and funeral catering and everything is professionally organised by the experienced and dedicated staff.
The Albany Theatre brings acts from across the UK to perform in Greenock. With the increase in number of shows, this is having a positive effect on other businesses in the area as both the acts and visitors travel and stay overnight to attend the shows.
The business has also secured a variety of original artists to the area, further promoting Inverclyde on UK tour schedules.
As an established asset to Inverclyde, Angela, Stuart and their team are incredibly grateful for the support of the local community. There is little doubt that the future is bright for this outstanding community-led business.
