Fudge Kitchen in Windsor opens its doors again on Saturday at 10am - one of six shops in the chain that will be welcoming fans back.

MD Sian Holt said: "Our 50 strong retail staff have been safely furloughed over this most difficult 100 days, but are all anxious to get back to what they do best: creating exceptional, artisan fudge and entertaining their customers.

"We have kept ourselves busy, connected and upbeat with weekly fudge challenges and internal updates, so the essence of our special Fudge Family remains very much intact; and their creativity and positivity as ever shone through the troubles.”

Since the March 23 lockdown, Fudge Kitchen has focused on the growing ecommerce business and the support of online customers.

With reopening of the shops new safety measures will see social distancing marketings on the floor and hand sanitiser pumps for customers before and after they enter.

Protective barriers will create a one-way system throughout, including screening off of the fudge making area and counter spaces to protect staff. New counter collection points will allow customers to pick up their fudge in a contactless way. Numbers admitted will be limited.
