In the past ten years there has been an unprecedented growth in the number of small firms. This growth has taken place within the hospitality industry as well as within other elements of the service sector. Examines some of the factors which have prompted growth of the small firm as well as some of the personal characteristics of the individuals who run these small firms. Draws on research into small firms undertaken throughout Northern Ireland and takes an in‐depth look at one successful small firm, Manor House Catering Services.
