Heavenly Desserts has bagged itself a spot in Rochdale’s hotly anticipated new Riverside development.
The new complex, which was devised with the aim of reviving the town centre, will be home to a number of major businesses. Food and beverage franchise Heavenly Desserts will sit alongside big-name brands like Marks & Spencer, Next and JD Sports. Boots and Superdrug will also have their own retail space.
And after popping into their favourite stores, shoppers will be able to enjoy a sit-down meal and pass some time in one of the complex’s new leisure facilities. A Nando’s restaurant will keep visitors fed, while a Reel Cinema and indoor mini-golf centre will make sure everyone’s entertained.
Although developers hoped to cut the ribbon for launch day on the 6th April, government regulations have caused them to revisit their plans. The celebration will be postponed; as Councillor John Blundell, the council’s Regeneration Chief said:
“It’s a fantastic scheme, we can have a relaunch when people stop self-isolating, everyone should be staying safe.”
Although the Rochdale Riverside development has got off to a somewhat bumpy start, there is more to come as part of this scheme. The second phase will create 228 new residential apartments across three buildings, as well as a hotel and multiple office spaces. If work can be completed on time, amid the COVID-19 outbreak, its launch day will be held in September later this year.
Heavenly Desserts is excited about serving its delicious treats in its newest franchise branch.

As a franchisee, you’ll need to make a total investment of £190,000, which will give you access to a three-week training programme and ongoing support.
