The gourmet catering delivery company Deliverance is pondering its options after a building bungle left its nearly £500,000 in debt. Drainage work went wrong in its third kitchen when steel piles underpinning the building were cut. This led to a rise in the refurbishment bill from £700,000 to £1.3m. Sales had been doubling annually until then for the London-based firm. The cost of the repairs and a delay in opening the new kitchen led to a loss of £100,000 last year on sales of £4.2m. Six experts give their advice to Deliverance in The Sunday Times’ The Enterprise Network feature The Sunday Times 25/01/04 page 15 (Business – The Enterprise Network)
