"The Marriott Group has transformed my business and their ongoing support and business will push it to high growth this financial year," says Simpson. "We supply some of the top Marriott hotels in London, including London Grosvenor House Hotel and West India Quay".

In its early stages, Mama Tea definitely piqued buyers’ interest, but they also found it to be too niche. Founder Anna Louise Simpson was encouraged to develop a new product line that would be more attractive to hotels, specifically.

She did just that. Certified women’s business enterprise Simpsons Tea offers designer tea blends and provides tea ranges that now feature in some of the world’s top hotels, including Marriott International branded hotels.

"The Marriott Group has transformed my business and their ongoing support and business will push it to high growth this financial year," says Simpson. "We supply some of the top Marriott hotels in London, including London Grosvenor House Hotel and West India Quay."

Simpson has just begun to leverage her WEConnect International certification, however. She plans on expanding her business to reach new markets including New York.

In October 2014, Executive Director of WEConnect International in Europe Maggie Berry organized a "Meet the Buyer" event with Marriott International and 18 women’s business enterprises in London. Through introductions and similar events, she is confident Simpson's success story with Marriott International will be one of many.
