Owner of Captain Fawcett's Emporium in King's Lynn is guest speaker at West Norfolk Business Breakfast meeting
The owner of Lynn-based Captain Fawcett's Emporium will be sharing his business journey with members of West Norfolk Chamber at their next breakfast meeting.
Richard Finney, who has a passion for motorbikes and antique grooming accessories for men, began his business less than ten years ago creating moustache wax in his kitchen. Now his supplies of men's grooming accessories reach a global market. His firm is based in Friesian Way, Hardwick Narrows Estate.
The business is named after a character Captain Fawcett, an Edwardian explorer whose trunk was discovered in 1997 which contained his gents' dressing case complete with oils, ointments and journals, around which he has based his ideas.
Previously Richard was a sound technician in the film and TV industry. Movies he has worked on included Chaplin, Memphis Belle and Billy Elliot.
The West Norfolk Business Breakfast meeting takes place at Knights Hill Hotel, Lynn, on Friday, February 1, from 8-10am. While this event is for members only, anyone who would like to attend to consider joining the Chamber should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
