Award-winning Sweet Tooth Delivery was initially launched to deliver cake late at night to hungry students.
But the demand for its service became so high that owners Kayley Smith and John-Paul Stonehouse started to develop the business to include dessert parlours and take outs.
With two outlets in Durham and one in Sunderland – and a further one planned – Sweet Tooth Delivery has now landed at Linthorpe Road, offering a range of signature cakes, waffles, cheesecakes and shakes, all made by the company’s own bakery team.
And for anyone who needs a late night sugar rush, the Middlesbrough branch is also offering a home delivery service.
“We decided that we wanted Middlesbrough to be a location for one of our stores because we have a lot of people from Teesside coming to our parlour in Durham,” said Kayley.
“We’re delighted that it’s becoming so popular and that people are appreciating the fact that everything we offer is made in our own bakery.”
