Kind words from CP Catering Equipment

“Choosing someone to design a website can be a daunting process especially as we had received convincing briefs from a number of web designers. We chose Darren and Eilidh as they understood exactly what we were looking for and got behind the brief straight away. They designed an e-commerce website for us and we are delighted with the result, not only from the point of view as to how the site looks but how easy it is for us to edit the content and process orders. Freshspace provides an extremely professional service with fast and efficient response times and excellent back-up support. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
