A HOMEMADE brownie business based in Basingstoke is entering Festival Place.

The Homemade Brownie Company, based out of a small unit in Basingstoke, is opening a retail kiosk in Festival Place in early July.

It will be offering a range of coeliac-safe blondies and brownies to customers.

This is the first retail kiosk of the entirely gluten-free company that was founded by Laura Bland and her husband Adam in 2016.

Laura began baking many years ago while away from work and bringing up her two sons at home. Before long she was supplying birthday cakes, wedding cakes, cupcakes and chocolate brownies to family and friends.

The couple started the business after Laura herself became intolerant to gluten and was struggling to find quality snacks.

They were originally baking and running the business from home in Hook until they grew enough to move into a professional catering unit in Stroudley Road, where the business is now run by several full-time employees.

A Homemade Brownie Company spokesperson said: “As well as attending events nationally, we also stock many local farm shops and cafes, so we like to feel as though we have become part of the community and are super excited to be expanding that into what is really the hub of the town.”
