In this episode of The DubaiLife Podcast, Liam and Richard sit down with Nick Purvis. The man behind Candypant's incredible growth here in Dubai!
After starting as a nightlife concept in the North of England in 2008 Candypants has come a long way. They have brought an unrivaled party experience to people all over the globe in destinations such as Miami, Las Vegas, Ibiza, Marbella, Oman, Doha and basically having their own party yacht at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. It's an amazing story of perseverance and how sticking to your vision can have amazing results.
But it wasn't always this way. Starting out in Dubai Nick talks about the early days and how they sometimes only had 13 people turn up to their brunch.
The city of Dubai is so happy Nick and the team stuck with it and changed the way we brunch. They now only focus on breaking their own records. Working alongside billionaire hotel magnate Mohammed Al Habtoor (in true Dubai spirit) they created the Candypant's Mega Brunch where they are able to host over 1,000 party goers. They even welcomed Justin Beiber to one of their parties.
The future for Nick and the brand is bright and he explains how they plan to expand into a lifestyle brand. They have already started a hugely popular swimwear line, Candypants radio and a new podcast that Nick hosts.
