Fast Track 100

Junkyard’s brightly-coloured crazy golf courses are themed around nightmare fairgrounds, 1990s raves, jungles and car scrapyards. Founded in 2015, its early courses were built from junk and second-hand items found on eBay. The Manchester company now has five venues, after opening in Liverpool last year. Sales hit £17.1m in the year to March under co-founder Mat Lake, 43, although since then its sites have temporarily closed due to national and local lockdowns. It has also had to scale back its expansion plans, but still hopes to open in Newcastle upon Tyne next year. Former commercial director Sam Jones, 40, has managed the business since August.
