Local experience company generates £3m for local businesses

Dominic Mills

Yuup, a local experiences company, has generated over £3m in income for local independent businesses in less than three years.

Since its inception in Bristol in April 2021 and its expansion into the West Midlands in 2022, Yuup has evolved with over 500 experienced hosts.

At the core of Yuup’s mission is a commitment to championing independent businesses and empowering local communities.

From bread-making workshops to foraging adventures, Yuup enables individuals to explore the best offerings in their city while supporting the local community.

In November, the total income earned by hosts on the Yuup platform since its 2021 launch exceeded £3 million.

For some hosts, Yuup experiences serve as their main source of income, while for others, it provides an additional revenue stream.

The success of Yuup has led to larger events, all organised with a core focus on social impact.

Collaborating with Bristol Cathedral on spectacular light shows in 2022 and 2023, Yuup is now gearing up for its most significant experience yet – Evolution, a drone light show.

In partnership with Celestial, the creators of mesmerising drone light shows, the event is anticipated to captivate over 50,000 people.

Evolution embodies Yuup’s original goal, introducing innovative entertainment while directly benefiting the broader Yuup host community as it surpasses 100,000 people across the West Country and West Midlands.
