Bar-Be-Quick figures in most entrepreneurial town award

Burnley-based firm Bar-Be-Quick is one of the companies cited after the Lancashire town was named most entrepreneurial area of the UK in 2013, receiving acclaim from HRH The Prince of Wales and the leader of Burnley council.
 
The barbecue manufacturer pioneered the instant barbecue in the town and has continued to produce it in Burnley for 27 years, despite overseas competition.
 
National accounts manager Caroline Hoare said: "We’re thrilled that the town has received this award and are proud to say we’re part of Burnley’s bustling business community. It’s a fantastic place to be based thanks to its hard-working people, great transport links and entrepreneurial spirit and we’re looking forward to being part of the exciting changes that are on the horizon."

The accolade, which was awarded through the Government Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, recognises and celebrates the range of business, enterprise and economic development work that has reshaped Burnley’s reputation.
