Cake Box plans to re-open all stores by June

Egg-free cake retailer Cake Box has said it expects to have all its high street shops open by early June after a trial click and collect and delivery service proved successful.

The company informed its franchisees that their stores should be closed when lockdown was anoounced, but since then 79 shops have re-opened after social distancing and protective hygiene measures were put in place.

In a statement, Cake Box said: “Following an initial trial, limited to a number of stores operating our click and collect service and delivery in partnership with select online platforms, the effective implementation of these new processes has meant that the group has, with confidence, been able to inform its franchise stores that they are able to resume trading at the discretion of the individual franchisee.”

The company also said that demand from customers has been encouraging, albeit at much lower levels than during normal trading conditions.

Production is currently limited to Cake Box’s Enfield site where it has implemented new health and safety procedures. It is also operating with reduced staffing levels to maintain the appropriate distancing.
