A thriving business networking organisation and its clients are celebrating after a multi-million pound deal blossomed over a breakfast date.

Business referral franchise Business for Breakfast (BforB) facilitated the alliance of an energy consultancy firm and a major hotel group, who sealed the deal five months after the meeting. Andrew Johnson, of energy advisors Co2 Solutions, said: “The business is out there and BforB can help you find it.

“I’ve been a member of BforB for several years and have always found it a useful source of business but my best result so far is without doubt the introduction to this hotel group’s Regional Manager.

“After a lot of hard work we’ve just signed a contract to work on all its UK hotels and also be its sole energy advisor for the European arm,” added Johnson.

Co2 Solutions will be working alongside the hotel’s European and UK directors, modernising and maintaining its energy plant, recruiting and training staff and devising maintenance plans for all of the group’s sites.

Business for Breakfast, which has more than 30 franchises already, is actively recruiting new franchise owners to help set up a business to connect other businesses throughout the UK.
