Are there any exciting plans that you can share with us about the future?
We are opening our first retail kiosk based in Festival Place right here in Basingstoke on 12 July. We’ve literally just signed the agreement with them so are super excited about this! We’ve exhibited there many times before on temporary stints and have always had a great time, so we are thrilled to be returning on a more permanent basis.
As well as this, we’ve been working very hard on a new range of retail products behind the scenes for almost two years and are in the final stages of testing just now. We can’t wait to launch this before the end of the year – it’s been a long time coming and so much hard work has gone in!
How do you come up with your brownie flavours?
Most of our flavours are created in the kitchen based on what the bakers think will work, but we also get great suggestions from customers and find sparks of inspiration in places like social media almost daily. There’s never a shortage of new ideas to test out.
Tell us how the Love Basingstoke followers can get their hands on your delicious brownies?
Originally, The Homemade Brownie Company was designed as a postal treat business. We have always enjoyed the idea of you guys surprising your loved ones with a sweet treat delivered straight to their door, however as we continue to grow and develop the opportunities for you guys to receive your brownie fix is ever increasing. In the summer of 2021, with the lockdown measures beginning to ease, we participated in the Blenheim Palace Flower Show. We had such a great time getting out and meeting customers new and old in person after such a tough year for all, that we decided events were definitely our thing! Flash forward to the present day and you can find us out and about most weekends ensuring everyone nationwide gets a chance to get their hands on our brownies. You can keep up to date on our travels across our social media platforms, to ensure you’ll never miss an opportunity.
As well as at markets and events, you can also find our products in various café’s, stores, and eateries! We are so proud to be stockists of such a diverse range of incredible businesses, our fellow Hampshire locals may recognise us from our features in Wellington or Newlyn’s farms shops and cafés. Be sure to look out for our new kiosk on your upcoming travels around Festival Place too!
