How did we really do?
It always makes us nervous to ask “how do you think we’re doing”. What if the answer is that you’d much prefer us to serve kebabs with extra chilli sauce? Or that we should be less friendly? Or that Seb needs to shave all his hair off again like he did in 2008?
We love what we do and we hope it shows. We get up in the morning, ready to make open sandwiches and ready to try and untangle the logistical puzzle that is importing from several countries at the same time. We love it and we’ve been doing it for almost five years and we want to do it for many more to come.
Thanks for taking the time to those of you who did – literally hundreds and hundreds of people filled in our questionnaire.
We can’t print every single reply, but we can print a small snapshot of the comments that made us giggle, listen up and some of the ones that made us blush in the nicest way. It’s only fair to share, isn’t it?
What’s the best thing about Scandinavian Kitchen?
This bit made us blush. A lot. Thank you. The fact that so many of you said “the hugs” and heaps of you told us that we make you feel less homesick means a lot.
What is the least good thing?
We learnt a lot here. Some good points that we’re already working on. Some comments such as “That there’s only one of you and you are not in Scotland” made us want to go open another cafe straight away. We know we get too busy sometimes and we’re working on a solution for that which does not involved Sebastian becoming a bouncer and people having to wear proper trousers to gain access.
What would make you pop back and see us more often?
The majority of you answered this question with “if you opened a store in Edmonton/Glasgow/Tunbridge Wells/Surbiton etc”
Over 98% of you rated the quality of our food as “Very good” or “Exellent”.
98,6% rated our Quality of Service as “very good” or “excellent”.
86% of you said our Grocery Selection of products was either “Very Good” or Excellent”. We got a great list of suggestions from you on new products as well, thank you.
From the “feel free to rant and rave here” section, these were our favourites:
- There's the total absence of beautiful Scandinavian women in Shipston-on-Stour
- I eat too many smorbukk
- I'm going to the gymnastics olympics test event tomorrow and I am excited!
- I don't have my own Swede to play with :(
- Please don't ever change! (we won’t, don’t worry)
So, for the winners… Camilla put on a sequined outfit and smiled, Seb put on a game shot hat (what IS a game show hat, anyway?), we put lots of names into the hat and out popped a bunny as well as a list of people whose lives will be greatly improved in the way of free stuff:
Free lunch for two at Scandi Kitchen:
Voucher for £50 to spend in our on-line store
A bottle of snaps
Thanks again, lovely people: We look forward to the fun year ahead.
Bye for now
