Tenant Profile: Paul De La Cruz, BENZ and BLANC

What's your name, and what do you do here at the Corn Exchange?
My name is Paul, and I'm the owner of BENZ and BLANC offering Affordable Invisible Braces, Clip-on Veneers, Botox & Fillers and more!

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I am originally from Liverpool! My previous job of 12 years brought me to Leeds, I then met my fiancé and we both have businesses in the Corn Exchange.

What is your history with the building?
I first came into the Corn Exchange many years ago and was blown away by the incredible architecture. My partner opened a shop here and a year later I came up with the idea to open a business offering unique affordable services.

What is your favourite thing about working at the Corn Exchange?
I love the variation of offerings in here, people can spend a whole day under a single roof if they wanted to! I also love that the atmosphere over the Christmas period is a lot more relaxed then on the high street, it’s like the building creates a calm in people.

Tell us about your best day out in Leeds. Where do you go? What do you do?
Love eating out in Leeds, you will often find us at Fazenda or The Man Behind The Curtain. There is definitely a lot on offer when it comes to food in Leeds!
