The proud owner of a newly opened sweet shop in Louth is determined to offer the town ‘something different’.
Jassies opened in Pawnshop Passage last weekend and owner Nick Heywood insists his business is more than ‘just a sweet shop’.
So far hundreds of customers have piled in to sample their array of tasty products.
Jassies offer a whopping 164 different types of jarred sweets, as well as 12 ice cream flavours. But unlike most sweet shops, they can fuse these together to make the most delicious and unique milkshakes.
Owner Nick dreamed of setting up his own business after serving in the RAF as a chef and spending 15 years in the car sales trade.
When he turned 40 in September, he grasped the nettle and took the plunge.
“We came up with the idea and waited for the perfect location, when Cycle Mode moved on and this place became available we went for it,” he said.
“The response from the public so far has been wonderful, we’re having so many compliments from people saying how different it is.
“The feel of the passageway lends ifself perfectly to the concept of our business.
“We have a five year plan in place and hope to have another two shops open in Lincolnshire in that time.
“We are also looking at going into weddings, birthdays and occasions in the near future as well as setting up a website early next year.”
Nick confirmed the business will be looking to take on a new member of staff later this year as well as another employee in the New Year.
