Cake Box Award

Cake Box award by Sarah Janes

In April 2010, Bohemia’s Cake Box was named ‘Retailer of the Year’ at the 1066 Business Awards.

This is a big achievement: the award recognises the growth of the shop, the achievements of the staff and the business’s future plans. Andrew and Vivian Berry have owned the Cake Box for about 4 years and are also about to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.  They have increased their staff from three part-time to two full-time and five part-time and the turnover has gone up by 20% year on year. This has been achieved by working with other local businesses and by taking their products to markets in East Sussex three times a week.

Future plans include a second shop. Winning ‘Hastings and Rother Retailer of the Year’ means that they go through to ‘Sussex Retailer of the Year’ in September – to be held in Brighton.
