Can you describe your business?

The Little Food Co. is a small, family run ‘quirky’ café and takeaway on Bridge Street, Omagh.

The Menu boasts a wide variety of choice and suits the whole family. Breakfasts, Lunches and vening specials prove very popular and are all served in a friendly, relaxed environment.

Why did you start your own business?

The Little Food Co. was initially established in November 2018. The building had remained derelict for a number of years and the owners worked hard to bring back life into a building that wasn’t being used. I was given the opportunity to take the business over in January, having many years experience in the catering industry  and a passion for working with food, this always was the next step for me. I am extremely grateful to the previous owners for their continuing support and guidance.
