News: Flexible office space fits for fudge firm


A local entrepreneur has successfully transformed her passion for baking into a fully-fledged luxury confectionery and gourmet fudge business – "Laura's Fudge."

Laura Jackson established the enterprise in 2012 as a University hobby that earned her extra money while studying for a business studies degree at Sheffield Hallam University.

Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength. Earlier this year the young entrepreneur opened a confectionary shop at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, Doncaster, selling a range of luxurious confectionery and fudge flavours for birthdays, special days and general gifts - which can also be purchased online.

As the company has grown so too has the fudge production process. To keep up with demand, the fudge is now made in special, traditional confectionery mixers and then handset by an outsourced local team.

In August, Laura's Fudge moved into its first Evans Easyspace office in Dinnington, Rotherham. Based at the regenerated site near the former colliery, the flexible office facility is used as an administrative hub from which Laura showcases her signature range of fudge at food festivals, shows and family events up and down the UK.

Over the summer, the business was at Great British Food Festival at Harewood House and the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations in Trafalgar Square.

Laura Jackson, founder of Laura's Fudge, said: "From starting out as a university hobby, it's been a real whirlwind journey and I'm delighted with how far the business has come. The ability to move into flexible office premises has really eased this process. Essentially we're not tied into a fixed, long term lease so we can upscale as and when we need to – this perfectly suits our immediate needs.

"We're an ambitious company and the goal is to keep growing! Our long term aim is to open more confectionary shops across the UK and build supplier relationships with major retailers."
