Galloway Chillies are very pleased to has been selected by Theo Paphitis as one of the UK’s top tweeters through his Small Business Sunday (#SBS) initiative.

The weekly competition is open to all small businesses across the UK and Galloway Chillies is only the second Dumfries & Galloway business to be selected since it started, more than 4 years ago.

Theo Paphitis is best known for appearing on Dragons Den on BBC Two. He is Chairman of Ryman Stationery, Boux Avenue lingerie and Robert Dyas, as well as joint owner of Red Letter Days.

Small Business Sunday was started in 2010 to reward small businesses and encourage business networking.  Each week Theo selects six small business winners based on the quality of their tweets, retweeting their business message to more than 400,000 of his followers, providing a massive boost to the chosen businesses.

We were ecstatic to win on the very last selection of winners in 2014. As well as increased awareness on twitter we were also invited to the exclusive #SBS Winners Networking Event, which took place in Birmingham last weekend.

It was fantastic to be chosen by Theo, I was over the moon to have won.  Twitter is very important to my business, it generates a lot of interest in Galloway Chillies and I’ve made lots of valuable business and friendship connections through social media.”  

Meeting Theo and the other #SBS winners in Birmingham was great fun and very inspirational.  I’ve come back buzzing with ideas and I’m raring to go to make Galloway Chillies even more successful.

We visited the #SBS networking event with Sharon Marshall from Trans-K9 Dog Transit Boxes, the only other winner in Dumfries & Galloway.
