TWENTY new jobs are to be cre­ated af­ter the UK’s fastest grow­ing ar­ti­san dessert café, Heav­enly Desserts, an­nounced plans to open up a new branch in Lough­bor­ough.

The group launched in 2008 and al­ready has stores in Le­ices­ter, Northamp­ton and Derby - now it will open its doors at 11 Bax­ter Gate, Lough­bor­ough, at 12pm on Satur­day, June 16.

A spokesman for the busi­ness said as Le­ices­ter­shire’s sec­ond largest city it was the vi­brant shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ences, the award-win­ning Lough­bor­ough Univer­sity, and the rich cul­tural her­itage - in­clud­ing the Great Cen­tral Rail­way and fa­mous Bell Foundry – which made the town the ob­vi­ous choice for the new store.

New store open­ings man­ager, Eden Falkner, said; “Heav­enly Desserts is all about us­ing the best in­gre­di­ents, cre­at­ing the per­fect desserts and giv­ing our guess the dessert ex­pe­ri­ence of a life­time.

“We can’t wait to open the doors for those across Lough­bor­ough and be­yond to en­joy.”

The new Lough­bor­ough store is un­der­go­ing a fit out with a con­tem­po­rary, yet re­laxed, in­te­rior ahead of its launch.

Hav­ing fallen in love with the Heav­enly Desserts con­cept back in July 2017, it was Im­ran Pan­dor who first came across the con­cept in Le­ices­ter and was de­ter­mined to bring the new store to Lough­bor­ough.

He said; “Heav­enly Desserts has cre­ated a range of desserts that are sim­ply spec­tac­u­lar, they re­ally have to be tasted to be be­lieved.”

The new Heav­enly Desserts is not only bring­ing a new ar­ti­san dessert ex­pe­ri­ence to Lough­bor­ough, but also new job op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Si­mon Robin­son, re­gional man­ager for Heav­enly Desserts said; “We have cre­ated 20 new roles at the new store in a range of lev­els.

“Our new team will un­dergo in­ten­sive ar­ti­san dessert train­ing ahead of our open­ing so that every waf­fle, pan­cake and sliced cake is pic­ture per­fect.”
