Rahul looks forward to continuing in his father's footsteps

A young entrepreneur who took over the family business after his father died has opened a new beauty salon at the Broadway Shopping centre in Bexleyheath.

Rahul Sachdev, 22, from Epsom in Surrey, is fulfilling his goal to expand the beauty parlour started by his parents.

The couple started the stall at the shopping centre over 6 years ago and now Rahul is moving into an entire shop, giving it a stylish make-over and creating four new jobs.

He said: “After my Dad died I took a decision to give up university and come home to help my Mum, Rekha, in the family business. It was a case of needs must but I was happy to do it.

“I very much hope that he would be proud of the way I am now trying to take the family business forward.”

The store will offer a range of beauty treatments including eyebrow threading as well as facials, massages and pedicures.

Peter Sedge, Broadway Shopping Centre Manager, said: “It is fantastic to work with Rahul to help him develop his family business at Broadway shopping centre, particularly off the back of their success with the brow bar.

“I feel sure Rahul’s father Eddie would be very proud of how Rahul and his mum Rekha are developing the business and I feel sure their new venture will be a hit with our shoppers.”
