The first Love Brownies Café in Wales has opened in Windsor Road, Penarth. Love Brownies Penarth is part of a growing network of cafes and shops across the UK offering multi-award-winning brownies plus a delicious breakfast and lunch menu, vegan options, and some beautiful gifts.

Cooke & Arkwright secured the lease on behalf of the landlord, Plymouth Estates. The firm’s Building Consultancy carried out repairs and prepared and decorated the unit in readiness for Love Brownies shop fitout team.

Ben Davies, Associate with Retail & Leisure said, “Love Brownies is another great addition to the town’s eclectic mix of shops, bars, restaurants and cafés. Opening a new store in these uncertain times is testament to Love Brownies’ confidence in their fantastic product and the town itself. This optimism is consistent with many other franchisees of a similar nature, proving that operators are seeing the opportunities in this challenging market.”

Franchisor Lee Teal added, “Our first café in Wales is a really big deal for us. We pride ourselves on offering a fantastic experience that matches our award-winning brownies and we’re delighted to open our doors and welcome the people of Penarth.”

Love Brownies was founded in the Yorkshire Dales in 2009 by Lee and Chantal Teal with the aim of baking the ‘ultimate chocolate brownie and making people smile’. It has since become well-established franchised business with a range of cafes, Grab & Go’s and Brownie Day Tourers across the country.

Mansford has expanded its investment portfolio over the last few years. Over this time Andrew West has provided us with a full rating valuation service which has involved giving a view on liabilities prior to acquisitions, as well as conducting negotiations with Valuation Officers on our UK estate. The portfolio includes a wide range of properties from shops, offices and pubs to major leisure schemes. He has been particularly successful in mitigating our liabilities to empty property rate, which has been an issue on acquisition prior to implementing our development and letting strategy. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew's expertise in rating valuation for all property types. The profile of property within his portfolio and the successes achieved are testament to his position as an extremely accomplished rating practitioner.
