The new store is a gourmet, family run store originally set up by Jess and Martin Barnett in Nottingham where they opened their first store in September 2014.
The duo felt that there was a gap in the market for a store selling locally made, quality confectionery in a modern setting, and after seeing business boom decided to take the next step and move into Meadowhall shopping centre.
The new store will sell over 300 different varieties of confectionery including traditionally made bon bons, 24 flavours of gourmet jelly beans, hard boiled classics like rhubarb & custards as well the company’s own Radioactive Sours – super sour sweets made in Sheffield.
The Treat Kitchen also produce their own assortment of handmade cream and butter fudge which is all made in store by Martin’s father Patrick.
“To introduce our exciting product range, over our first eight weekends we have over 75,000 sweets and chocolates to hand out. That equates to over a quarter of a tonne of confectionery!” said Martin Barnett.
The store will be opened on 3 September by deputy mayor of Sheffield councillor Anne Murphy.
On Saturday 3 September 2016 the deputy mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Anne Murphy, will be cutting the ribbon and officially opening the new confectionery store to the people of Sheffield.
