Robin and Nicky Jaques became partners both at work & in real life 36 years ago. Rob brought with him so much experience in the hospitality industry including several famous Yorkshire landmarks such as The Windmill at Linton, Bull at Broughton and The Sawley Arms at Sawley.
Nicky spent a few years working her way up the ladder to Manager within Betty’s of Harrogate, the indisputable leader in confectionery! The concept of their idea was actually born in the kitchen of The Sawley Arms which they managed as a couple. Hence the name.
Their biscuits are in the rooms of some of the finest hotels, such as The Ritz Hotel London, The Chester Grosvenor and The Grand Hotel York.
