Well, they say you’ve got to be in it to win it, but while we were delighted to be nominated in two categories at the Yorkshire Choice Awards this year, we were amazed when we walked away as winners of the Independent Business of the Year award last Friday!
We’re still buzzing from our win and while we’re a little surprised, it does make all the hard work we’ve put in since our inception in 2012 worth it. Our strong company values and the dedication of our team have played a big part in our award success, but ultimately, we couldn’t have done it without you, our fantastic customers.
Choose one of our bespoke bar hire options and you’ll have the freedom to create a truly unique experience for your guests. Our bars can be personalised with your own branding, while there’s even the option to tailor your cocktail menu so that it fits with a wider theme.
You’ll have a great selection of cocktails to choose from, ranging from the traditional to something a little more out-there.
Hiring a cocktail bar for your next corporate event is also a great way to get people talking and break the ice.
We have a full team of mixologists and flair bartenders on hand to entertain your guests and bring everyone together for a corporate event with a difference.
When our founding Director James Abbott launched the Mix and Twist mobile cocktail bar service, the business was a small start-up with big ideas – but in just 5 short years we’ve grown at an impressive rate, now with over 30 team members across the UK and creating lots of job opportunities in the Leeds region along the way.
We’ve always been committed to our local community, with both James Abbott and Commercial Director Lucy Barrow contributing to local volunteer projects and by consciously choosing to work with local suppliers. Lucy was also nominated in the Business Woman of the Year category, and while we didn’t secure that award, it’s a testament to her skills and knowledge to have been considered for this accolade!
In the last couple of years alone we’ve achieved a 300% growth, and we’re excited to be setting up a base in London later this year due to demand for our services in the area – with our mobile cocktail bars being used by both private clients and well-known brands such as Sky, Mini, Mercedes, Bentley, Moonpig, Adidas, Reebok and Thomas Cook.
We LOVE creating delicious cocktails for our customers, but we know that our recent award is really down to your great feedback and, of course, your votes! To date, we’ve completed over 1000 events with nothing but 5-star feedback, and have been fortunate to receive 200 5 star testimonials across Facebook, Google and Free Index.
Speaking of the award win, Lucy says: “A massive, massive THANK YOU to the people who voted for us. Your support is overwhelming and we’re thrilled to bits.”
We’re super proud of our new status as ‘award-winning’ and look forward to serving you for many more years to come!
Creating the ultimate mobile bar experience for your corporate event is just a phone call away.
