2016 was a year of growth in many ways for the Graffiti Spirits Group. They opened Santa Maluco and continued their search for more sites in the latter part of the year.
Proof of how the Group has matured was evident in their accomplishments in being nominated for many prestigious awards.
For example, they were included in the top 5 regional tourism businesses at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards at the beginning of the year.
At the Merseyside Independent Business Awards in the summer, their directors were shortlisted from more than a thousand businesses and all highly commended in the Independent Business Person of the Year category.
One of the highlights of 2016 was founders John Ennis and Matthew Farrell being included in North West Business Insider’s acclaimed 42 under 42, the class of 2016’s entrepreneurs and pioneering achievers in business.
The Graffiti Spirits Group was also voted by judges as one of the Top 50 companies at the Northern Restaurant Bar Awards 2016 and will be targeting a number of equally high profile regional, trade and national business awards in 2017.

Next up after launching Santa Maluco in 2016 is the pop up launch of El Bandito in London in March 2017…a sign of what is surely one of THE lesiure groups to watch for the remainder of 2017.
