Abstract

The ‘family’ is frequently mentioned in assessments of the apparent distinctiveness

groups, and low rates of small business activity in others. Implicitly, such debates are recognition

Britain make explicit the link between household dynamics and ethnic minority business

upon ‘family’ enterprise operating in the independent restaurant sector. In-depth interviews with

particular issues: the role of family members in the business; the impact of household dynamics

The ? ndings highlight the gendered nature of roles within the micro-business household, and the

predominantly second-generation family members could not be regarded as an example of

labour market choices, socialisation, and power relations within the household.
