It plans to triple the size of its current restaurant capacity – increasing capacity from 46 to 150-plus covers – after acquiring a 3,000 sq ft unit next to the current venue on Market Street.
An additional 10 jobs will be created as part of the expansion, increasing Provenance’s employees to 35.
The business was founded by husband and wife Brian and Karen Tinniswood together with brother Rob Tinniswood, in June 2015 and has already achieved listing in the Good Food Guide for the two years it has been operating.
“Our team, led by Karen and Lewis, share a passion for bringing great food to the people of Westhoughton, all of which is sourced from local producers and suppliers,” said Brian Tinniswood.
“Our restaurant is fully booked most nights, so when the unit next door became available it was the perfect opportunity for us to look at expanding our business.
“NatWest helped us access the finance needed as well as advice and support throughout the whole process. We can’t wait to open the new space and give more diners the chance to sample our award-winning dishes.”
Jamie Grimshaw, relationship manager at NatWest, added: “Provenance is a real hit in Westhoughton and it’s great to see a business which supports the local community doing so well.
“The family will transform a derelict site into a thriving business, creating new jobs in the process. I wish them all the best of luck.”
