An aspiring Crawley chef who moved to the UK from Slovakia in September last year has won a business competition with his idea for a sushi home delivery service.

Imrich Berta, 22, who lives in West Green and is studying business at Central Sussex College, was named the winner of Young Start-up Talent, a business competition for 16-25-year-olds in the Gatwick Diamond, at the Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel and Country Club on Monday.

He will receive £50,000 worth of business tools from the competition’s sponsors to turn his idea ‘Happy Go Sushi’ into a fully-fledged business.

Imrich thanked Central Sussex College, described being ‘shocked’ at winning Young Start-up Talent and added: “I’m from Slovakia and it’s an example that this country is offering a chance and opportunities to every hard working person with ideas.”
