This was us 5 years ago as we set off for a family holiday to Italy. It was a really special holiday for us because it was our final break before we opened our business.
Upon arriving at the airport, our son cut his tongue in half and we ended up in A&E. He then stayed awake for 2 weeks solid (the whole holiday). Our daughter also wasn’t very well and ended up having an operation as soon as we got back.
You couldn’t write it!
Definitely not the “relaxing break” we’d dreamt of before we were about to risk it all by starting our own business. Such is life!
We didn’t know where the business was going to take us at this point. We just both knew it was something that we really wanted to do. Boy, if we’d have had a crystal ball to tell us what the next 12 months had in store, I don’t think we’d have believed it! I definitely didn’t have owning a brownie bakery on my bingo card!

Our brownie bakery has now been in production for 5 years…

So much has happened in the last 5 years, but the one thing that has remained throughout is our passion for what we do. Don’t get me wrong, some days we have a few wobblers, but we feel SO lucky to be doing what we do!
I can’t quite believe we’re approaching 5 years with our business. It really feels like an enormous achievement to have made it to this point.
We’ve got a seriously busy 2nd half of the year, but it’s important to look back and reflect on the journey.
Thank you all for continuing to support our small family business. It means the world that we get to do this every day!
Big brownie love,
Mama Bean and Bean Daddy
