From piz­zas to a par­lour for desserts

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Town Centre Changes -

Work­ers have be­gun con­vert­ing a for­mer town cen­tre pizza restau­rant into a dessert par­lour.

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion was submitted for the pop­u­lar sweet treat chain Kaspa’s Desserts to take on the site of the for­mer Pizza Hut restau­rant at the bot­tom of the Lower High Street in Ash­ford. The site has been empty since Pizza Hut moved out in early 2013, and had been the sub­ject of ru­mours that it would be­come a mo­tor­ing-themed cafe and bar.

Kaspa’s is a fast-ex­pand­ing chain of dessert par­lours of­fer­ing a menu in­clud­ing sun­daes such as knicker­bocker glory and mango ma­nia, waf­fles and crepes, and desserts such as sticky tof­fee pud­ding and hot ap­ple crum­ble.

The com­pany pre­vi­ously opened in Can­ter­bury, and has opened at West­wood Cross in Thanet in March. More par­lours are planned in Ton­bridge, Tun­bridge Wells and Dover.

The move fol­lows the open­ing of ri­val Just Desserts in Bank Street last sum­mer.
