Recipe for success – Warrington based Room Forty scoop two awards at the Northern Enterprise Awards

 

Room Forty Declared: 

• Best Mobile Afternoon Tea & Baking Company 

• Leading Northern Provider of Baking Workshops   

Cheshire based mobile afternoon tea and baking school, Room Forty, has lifted two new awards at this year’s Northern Enterprise Awards.     

The micro bakery based from the owners Warrington home was declared Best Mobile Afternoon Tea & Baking Company and Leading Northern Provider of Baking Workshops.    

The new awards follow on from founder Jen Perry’s inclusion in Good Taste magazine’s Power List of 100 Women leading the Food & Drink Industry published in 2018, winning Hospitality Provider of the Year at the Warrington Business Awards in 2018 and winning Silver in the Tiptree World Bread Awards in 2017.      

Jen Perry, owner and founder of Room Forty commented,     ‘I’ve created a little business that I love. I work hard and like to think that the energy and passion that I put into every bake, afternoon tea and baking class reflects in the service and product that we provide.     I have had so much wonderful support from my micro team and our customers, and it is thrilling to receive these two new independently judged awards.     We began bread making courses a couple of years ago and now run them across the north west, teaching others to make our award-winning White Delight loaf, creating a new generation of bakers.

Our recipe is simple. Give something extra. Try something new. Delight in surprising your customers...and have people around you that believe in you.   Anything is possible. These awards prove it’.      The Northern Enterprise Awards cover the entire Northern region and are judged following a three-month period of scrutiny by a team of judges. The Awards are sponsored by SME News.
