The Pudding Parlour is relocating its original Hexham store to a new prime town centre location.
The new shop on Fore Street will open for business on October 7, and brings the number of Pudding Parlour outlets across the region to four.
The dessert business run by brother and sister team Kristy Giblin and Greg Small had been located on Hexham's Haugh Lane Industrial Estate. But the pair have recently opened a new, large purpose built bakery in Prudhoe to keep up with both trade and consumer demand for its decadent sweet treats with an American twist.
Kristy and Greg only launched The Pudding Parlour in 2013. Now the fledgling firm employs 15 staff and has retail outlets in Morpeth, Hexham, Fenwick Food Hall, and a cake collection unit at the Prudhoe bakery.
Originally a home-based enterprise, The Pudding Parlour was born out of Kristy and Greg's joint love of indulgent American-style desserts. Popular recipes include Cookie Dough Pie, Caramel Snickerdoodles, Mississippi Mud Pie and a range of cheesecakes and tray bakes.
As well as filling the retail outlets with hand-made sweets and desserts, the Pudding Parlour also supplies a number of pubs and restaurants across the North East.
Kristy says: "The business has really taken off and people seem to love what we make. We're always coming up with new ideas and adding to our range.
"Our base in Hexham has been brilliant and helped us launch our business whilst keeping overheads low, but now the time is right for us to move up to a more prominent position in the town centre and design a store that represents the quality and style of our business offering.
"We have been looking for the ideal location for some time and this store is perfect. It is large enough for Hexham's own bakery production to remain on site rather than head office, but offers us a generous shop space too, and even room for a few tables for our customers to dine at."
