Chalking up one for the trade

A GLASGOW businesswoman is targeting the Scottish licensed trade after carving out a niche for her company south of the border and overseas.

Robyn Keen, owner of Chalkpens, a supplier of liquid pens for use on chalkboards, is based in Shawlands, Glasgow.
Although she has courted customers from across England and as far away as the US and Dubai, the business has a comparatively small footprint in Scotland.
Now, Keen is focusing on growing sales in the Scottish trade, having already secured listings in Glasgow outlets that include Brewdog and The Living Room.
“I really feel that I’m only scratching the surface with it,” said Keen.
