Discover the award winning Little Dessert Shop franchise and embark on a journey of pure indulgence
When it comes to choosing a dessert extravagance our ethos is simple…to create a unique and heavenly experience, something special, something extraordinary, sweet superiority.
Founded in 2014, independently run and family-owned, the Little Dessert Shop is the original dessert destination. Born out of a love for fine foods, in particular the mouth-watering taste of amazingly alluring ambrosia, we wanted to take the unassuming dessert and turn it into a creative masterpiece for all to enjoy.
Using only the finest ingredients, our enticing menus offer an irresistible choice of cakes, crepes, waffles and cookie dough, fondue, sundaes and over forty flavours of ice cream, gelatos and sorbets.
The Little Dessert Shop is continually evolving - crafting new creations, a ‘create your own’ portfolio, seasoned limited-edition menus and the original concept of ‘indulgence delivered to your door’ with our home delivery service.
The Little Dessert Shop franchise is a fantastic business model that is robust and profitable. We continue to develop it in line with new trends and opportunities and so if you are interested in a franchise that is fresh and exciting, and constantly evolving, we would love to hear from you.
Our franchise opportunity
Little Dessert Shop is an exciting alternative business model to an already saturated coffee and fast food market. Desserts are new and so we are creating a unique opportunity for the UK franchise market which is supported by a proven success story.
Little Dessert Shop offers an attractive return on investment, a strong online presence with support from a central head office and stock distribution centre. Our store concept will cater for any market and all age groups.
There are 3 models to choose from depending on location, store premises and footfall: kiosk, a café and a restaurant.
The start-up cost varies based upon the model chosen; typically, a kiosk model from £87,995 and a restaurant model will start from £159,995. HSBC and Lloyds can fund up to 70% (dependent on personal circumstances).
This includes the initial franchise fee that covers the following areas: right to use the brand name, a comprehensive support package, assistance with shop fitting, initial induction training, onsite opening support, marketing and promotional launch and materials, online web presence, exclusive territory, copy of franchise operations manual and a franchise agreement with a right to renew at end of term.
