Supporting tourism in Wales
One project which has been supported by £75,000 of Wales Economic Growth Funding is already underway and is finding alternative use for the disused site of the old Little Chef in Conwy.   

Entrepreneur, Jonathan Williams-Ellis, who also owns Glasfryn Parc near Pwllheli, is turning the site into a café, local produce shop and Tourist Information Centre which will open in Spring 2014. The project will create five permanent full-time jobs and two permanent part-time jobs and the owner believes that the project will benefit the whole community.  

Jonathan Williams-Ellis, said:  “We see this site as an entrance point to Snowdonia and it has been an eyesore for some time.  We will bring a farm shop and cafe and also a tourism centre where people can get information about the area.

“This is the last stop directly on the A55 before Holyhead and we think it will be popular.  It’s a  win-win for the area, it will create jobs and we also hope to use local produce where we can so it potentially offers another place for suppliers to sell from.”
