With diabetes and obesity becoming the fastest growing health threats, stress and lifestyle causing more people to develop intolerances and requiring special diets; it only seemed natural to come up with an offering that is inclusive yet gourmet; that those with special dietary requirements or REAL health conscious individuals - like us - can enjoy, without feeling like they are missing out on the taste or quality. Yummzy (an adjective to describe something that tastes so yummy that yummy doesn’t even cut it!)
Yummzy is the first bakery in the United Kingdom to offer desserts, treats and ice-creams that are Low in carbohydrates (under 5g carbs per serving; ketogenic & diabetic friendly), Sugar Free, Gluten Free (coeliac friendly), Vegan & high in protein, without compromising on the taste or quality of the ingredients! Our reviews and ratings (including 5/5 for good taste, 5* on TripAdvisor , 4.8* on Google ) speak for themselves and our customers consistently use words like “gourmet”, “phenomenal” and “heavenly” to describe our treats. And yes, we have managed to achieve that rating without the eggs, milk, sugar or gluten!
We bake everything ourselves in house, using recipes we love from our grandmothers and family.... but perfected to be gentle on diabetics, safe for coeliacs, tasty for a dessert lover and fit for fitness professionals! Only the highest quality ingredients, natural colours and no preservatives are used to make our creations and we do not compromise on that! This means they are safe even for a child to enjoy - INCLUSIVE, just as meals and family times should be! =) We would simply not serve you anything that we wouldn’t eat ourselves – it is as simple as that!
A strong core of our business is our ethics; we are green in every way possible, we hire and train local staff, use recyclable packaging and where possible, use independent suppliers and family businesses. All our staff are trained by the founders themselves and encouraged to take different roles; from serving customers, to baking, managing our social media and whatever it takes to make the business work. Not only does it mean our Yummziers grow and evolve with the business, but they are also equipped with skills that will help them professionally in life and we continue to contribute to our local area and community.
We are a family business, with a passion to make the world a better place; but we need a few more heroes (with or without a cape) to help us! As a small family business, other methods of funding are not a viable option for us.
What Support is Needed?
We have been trading since November 2018. The demand has been increasing consistently and our name has spread across the United Kingdom, with regular customers from Southampton, Manchester and beyond the UK (when visiting the country we are often high up on their itinerary lists!) We are the only ones specialising in what we do in the UK and one of the very few around the world. Just before Covid19 and unexpected café closure, we were discussing franchising in two countries outside the UK, and we are often asked by our customers to open up a café closer to them in different parts of the UK.
To date, your generous contributions and our repeat customers have allowed us to expand our product range, launch ice-creams (which many of you enjoyed last summer) and low carb bread. We have also been able to strengthen our social media presence (including our YouTube channel) and launch online deliveries within London and limited nationwide deliveries. We have a lot more that we would love to offer our customers, including:
1) Website Expansion: A relaunch of our website (with nutritional values, photos and full details of our products) which will make the ordering process simpler and more streamlined for our customers. At the moment, customers order through social media messaging, which is time consuming both for us and our customers and means that we cannot focus our resources on other areas, such as new product development and expansion.
2) Expanding our product range: The demand online has outgrown our expectations very quickly and there is a growing demand for ‘low carb’, 'sugar free' and 'keto' products, as well as vegan, gluten free and coeliac friendly. We would love to fill that demand and grow, including by launching some of our products into artisan supermarkets; and
3) Bigger, Better Premises: Reopening of our cafe in a bigger and more accessible location that will in turn enable us to scale up. Our premises in Greenwich, London, was our starting point; however, parts of that journey have been hard on us including leaving it sooner, due to unresolved roof ingress. In order to expand further, we need to move into safer and bigger premises to enable us to continue with stability and scale up to meet delivery and event demands, as well as making our products available in some specialist health grocery stores.
We promise to continue bringing smiles and joy to people with strict dietary requirements, (such as diabetics, coeliacs, vegans, keto, low carbers), athletes, those avoiding sugar for another reason or anyone into desserts, through our gourmet, high quality, inclusive desserts!
This can only be done with your support. We are a small family business and we do not have financial backing. We have ourselves, our believes, passion, commitment and reputation to date – and now, we also have you! Help us make that next leap and we will reward you with an abundance of delicious, Sinfully Guiltless treats!
As a small family business, we do not currently have much resources (nor margin) available; however, we want to reward you as much as we can for your support. We would be honoured to offer the following:
Under £100 – a very BIG WARM HEARTILY THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts; a warm drink & a hug on your next visit (once we reopen – just quote “Hug Me Yummzier”) =)
Between £100 and £500 – a lucky dip of 6 treats and 10% off for 3 months;
