Business Hero – Stewart Wright from Nuovo

Meet Stewart Wright, owner of Abington Street’s Nuovo Restaurant …

Stewart, whose restaurant recently celebrated its sixth birthday, has been praised and recognised for supporting fellow businesses during the challenges of Covid.

As well as assisting many town centre shops and businesses he also helped the BID team, by tracking down more than 650 bottles of hand sanitiser for the BID’s Covid Recovery Packs – given out to businesses as they prepared to reopen following lockdown one.

During lockdown, Stewart and his team adapted the business to allow customers to order and enjoy a Nuovo Takeaway.

Stewart is also the founder of the group Independent Business Collective Northampton, a valuable point of contact and support for fellow independent businesses seeking everything from collaboration and support to grant and funding information.
