A lack of availability of egg-free cakes for his daughter’s birthday party spurred Sukh Chamdal, 55, to set up this business with co-founder Pardip Dass, 46, in 2009. It produces eggless, vegetarian cream cakes, which it says are a safe choice for a party or wedding where a guest may have an egg allergy, but do not compromise on flavour. The business operates a franchise model across its 72 UK stores, with plans to open a further two each month. Turnover in 2017 hit £8.7m, which is comprised of supply sales to franchisees and new store fit-outs.
