Here’s some great news for cheesecake lovers in Gedling borough…
The future of Big Mike’s Artisan Cheesecake Shop on Carlton Hill is now secure after the owner u-turned on plans to sell the business,
The Carlton shop, which opened in November 2020, was put up for sale last week but owner Mike Jones, aka Big Mike, has announced on Facebook that he’s since had a change of heart.
He posted: “Since we made the announcement last week that we would be putting Big Mike’s on the market we have had a lot of interest which has been really positive. Putting the business up for sale was not something we wanted to do but felt it was something we should explore.
“Laying out all the positives and the things that we need to work on within the business to prospective buyers has been very useful to us and actually made us reassess our situation. For the last two years we’ve put everything into this business and we can’t see ourselves not doing that moving forward. However, the growth to Beeston has been more than we can manage so we have decided not to sell and to keep our Carlton store but close the Beeston store.”
One fan in Carlton posted: “This is absolutely fantastic news! You guys deserve all the success in the world and I’ll certainly be making the most of the best cheesecake in the world being around!”
