A WED­DING dress re­tailer orig­i­nally from Burbage has been named as the 18th fastest grow­ing com­pany in the UK.

WED2B, which now has a store in Hinck­ley’s The Cres­cent, was named in the 21st an­nual Sun­day Times Vir­gin Fast Track 100 league ta­ble, which ranks the top 100 pri­vate com­pa­nies with the fastest grow­ing sales over the past three years.

The com­pany’s Hinck­ley store opened in 2016 and has helped thou­sands of lo­cal brides find their dream wed­ding dress.

The com­pany, which was started in 2009 as the Wed­ding Dress Fac­tory Out­let in the Bri­tan­nia Build­ings in Burbage, has grown to be the UK’s largest bri­dal re­tailer with 27 stores na­tion­wide, from Glas­gow to Brighton.

They have taken the in­dus­try by storm and re­vi­talised the way brides shop for wed­ding dresses. Each of the UK-de­signed, lim­ited edi­tion dresses are avail­able offthe-peg, so brides can take their dream dress home the same day.

Mak­ing its de­but on the league ta­ble in 18th place, WED2B recorded sales of £15.1m in 2017.

Todd Cas­sidy, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor with his wife Jenny, said: “We’re ab­so­lutely thrilled to have been named as one of the fastest grow­ing com­pa­nies in the UK.

“It shows that our propo­si­tion, which puts the needs of bridesto-be first, is pay­ing off. Fur­ther­more, the team have worked con­sid­er­ably hard, so it’s great to see their ef­forts be­ing recog­nised by one of the most pres­ti­gious league ta­bles for busi­ness growth.”

Jenny pre­vi­ously told The Hinck­ley Times that they were pas­sion­ate about help­ing bridesto-be find their dream dress.

She added: “At Wed2b we be­lieve ev­ery woman de­serves to look stun­ning and feel spe­cial on their wed­ding day – re­gard­less of bud­get. Since 2009 we have been of­fer­ing our brides-to-be a huge range of beau­ti­ful, high qual­ity de­signer bri­dal wear in a warm, friendly and en­thu­si­as­tic en­vi­ron­ment.

“It’s an ex­pe­ri­ence our cus­tomers tell us they love and one we’re proud to of­fer.”
