Wednesday, 21 April was National Tea Day and marked a special week for Warrington based Afternoon Tea company Room Forty.
The award-winning business celebrated its fifth year since its foundation by Jen Perry and has won another award.
The Warrington micro bakery was declared Mobile Baking Company of the Year at the Manchester & North West Prestige Awards 2020/21.
The accolade adds to the impressive roster of awards accumulated by Room Forty since it was founded by Jen Perry five years ago.
Room Forty was founded in 2016 as a mobile afternoon tea parlour setting up in customers’ homes or venues, dressing the room in 1930’s style and serving traditional, homemade afternoon teas to guests on fine vintage china. It established its baking school that same year delivering classes across the region and has taught over 500 people to bake bread, cakes and biscuits.
Jen Perry makes and bakes everything for her afternoon tea’s herself from her 5 Star rated kitchen in Woolston, Warrington.
Jen Perry, owner and founder of Room Forty commented,
‘It is lovely to have received this award, especially just prior to Room Forty’s fifth birthday. I really can’t believe that my little business is five years old. I’m so lucky that it has been a success and that I’m able to do the job I love.
It is all down to the support of my wonderful customers of course who have been even more fabulous during lockdown when I started doing boxed afternoon tea deliveries.
We’ll be celebrating our win and fifth year in business with a brew on national Tea Day on 21st!’
National Tea Day is a day of celebration of our national cuppa which is still the nations go to beverage.
