Welsh ice cream chain bought out of administration

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 | BUSINESS SALE

Cadwaladers, a Welsh ice cream chain, has been bought out of administration in a deal that looks set to put the firm in a strong position for growth.

The business had a total of 14 shops operating across north and south Wales in locations including Barry and Cardiff. The deal will secure 92 jobs at the company by maintaining nine of those 14 shops.

It was the management team at the business who lead the distressed purchase, headed up by Diane Brierley and Mark Andrews.

They were driven by a desire to protect the future of the business and noted that the deal will put the company in a “strong position” as it moves forward.

Ms Brierley added in a report from The Daily Post: “It has been a difficult few months, but with our range of award winning products and excellent customer service, we believe Cadwaladers has the potential to come back stronger by offering customers something different to the standard cafes and coffee shops usually seen on the high street.”

The business was originally established by the Cadwalader family in Criccieth in 1927. They used a secret family recipe for their famous vanilla ice cream which is still used today.
