Award winning banqueting suite set to double in size

22 January 2018

A West Midlands based banqueting suite is expanding its’ Smethwick premises following funding from Barclays.

The Prestige Suite, based on Downing Street in Smethwick, has secured a seven figure sum from the bank to expand its current site by an additional 1,100 square metres.

The company specialises in catering for large scale events including weddings and, following the refurbishment, will be able to cater for up to 1,000 people at any given event. In addition, the business is also expanding its on-site parking facilities.

Commenting on the expansion, Director Ram Suglani said: “Since we opened in 2013, the business has gone from strength to strength. It became apparent that there was a demand for larger parties/weddings, particularly Asian weddings, and therefore we starting taking steps to expand our current site. We were fortunate enough to be chosen as the Best Banquet Centre 2017 at The British Asian Wedding Awards in London and also at the Midlands Asian Wedding Awards and we are keen to build on this success.”

Mohammed Fiaz, Relationship Director at Barclays said: The Prestige Suite is a good example of a business who is responding to customer need. I am delighted we have been able to support them with the funding required to extend their existing site and look forward to seeing the building works completed.”

Work is expected to complete in Spring 2018.
