Christchurch property investor Mike Percasky remembers feeling “extremely nervous” when the Little High Eatery opened to the public in 2017.

Fellow investors in the project, Richard Peebles and Kris Ingles, weren’t confident the boutique, food hall concept would succeed and Percasky said he had to work hard to convince them otherwise. It’s fair to say Percasky’s early judgement was bang on.

“I thought success would be 300 people a day” he says, “some days we get 2000 people through the door.”
