Bron’s Bakes is a Kettering based SME that provides delicious treats for offices, parties, events, celebrations and weddings. From fully branded cupcakes to something a bit different for your special day, Brons has you covered.
Originally working in the music industry in London, Bronwen made a change and moved to Kettering a couple of years ago. She never felt settled in ‘proper jobs’ and wanted to be her own boss rather than answering to someone else. She combined her love of food and business and started Bron’s Bakes. Bron wanted to challenge the misconception that baking cakes and other goods isn’t a proper business and they aren’t worth the money because… “It’s just cake”. Bron’s goal is to make fun, tasty goods that bring a smile to your face when you see and eat it, she shares her highs and lows on her blog as well as business advice she’s picked up along the way to help others who are passionate about reaching their business goals.
Bron joined the South East Midlands start Up Programme last August, since then she has grown and shaken up her original idea and has now got a new focus and goals. Expanding into the corporate and event catering market will allow her to grow her business, stand out from local competitors and make more of a profit.
“The project has been invaluable resource. I couldn’t believe the workshops and support were free, I was a bit worried and nervous about attending the workshops at first, but I realised they were easy to understand and really helped me grow and develop my skill set. Even if you only walk away learning 1 thing, it’s still 1 thing you didn’t know and can help your business. I felt encouraged to learn more – and wanted too! It made me think about business in a different way and evaluate each stage of my business and made me realise how important business plans are! The 1-2-1 support has been really useful and encouraging, when I doubted myself I had a meeting with my business adviser and found myself re-motivated. I would highly recommend the project to fellow start-up businesses!”
We’re excited to see Bron’s Bakes does next and watch them tackle the corporate world – and hopefully enjoy some sweet treats along the way. To find out more about SEMSUP contact us today!
