Press Release: New owners of Elite Living announced!

Elite Living, the Dorset-based daily deals and event ticketing website first launched in 2012 by Joshua Simons and Steve Crawford, has been sold to entrepreneurs Mandy Dowley and Marnie Brown.

The platform was initially developed as a local, bespoke rival to Groupon, and went on to forge relationships with hundreds of independent businesses, selling 1,000s of vouchers every month, in turn generating in excess of £7million in revenue for the local economy.

With the pandemic drawing to a close, the platform is now in a good place to make an impact for local businesses that are intent on introducing their product or service to Elite Living’s 50,000+ subscribers.

Joshua Simons comments: ‘Myself and Steve enjoyed launching and building Elite Living over the years in the local area. We have now taken a different direction in our business journey, and have worked hard to find the perfect buyers. Marnie and Mandy are ambitious entrepreneurs with local knowledge and an eye for detail. We’re confident that they will take Elite Living to the next level – the business is in very capable hands’.

Marnie Brown, new Elite Living co-owner, comments: ‘Myself and Mandy are excited to get the ball rolling with our new business – we have plans to grow the already successful site. We’ll be working with many of Elite Living’s existing clients, as well as introducing many new local businesses to the platform, this year and beyond. Get in touch and let’s drive new customers to your business, together!’
