Vinyl Cafe West
Vintage Vinyl and Cool Coffee
Jake Furey has been selling vinyl records on Portobello Road for years. Jake does not just sell your average LPs, customers come from far and wide looking for those elusive tracks, both professional disc jockeys and local music enthusiasts alike. When Jake purchased the Vinyl Café West last year he wanted to give his customers somewhere to relax and enjoy the music. In creating the perfect vibe the café needed a complete refurbishment, but being a young business the traditional banks would not help Jake with the financing. However YouLend saw the value in both Jake and the Vinyl Café West and was happy to help.
How did YouLend help the Vinyl Café West?
"YouLend helped me grow my business. I wanted to give people an experience and not just another café, creating tranquillity through food and music capturing that Portobello essence. YouLend looked at my business in a new and contemporary way. They did not disregard me just because we are a young business. They didn’t need extensive commercial plans or old annual reports either, they simply looked at how the cafe was doing today and quickly assessed how they could help us grow and the results have been great.”
