Roly’s Fudge Franchise

Franchise History

In 1987, Peter and Lindsey Riley founded Roly’s Fudge in Torquay because they were worried that handmade sugar candies would disappear. Over the next few years, it began to expand nationally by opening stores in Totnes and Paignton. Their idea was that the recipe they had devised should be shared throughout the country, so they decided to establish a franchise model. Its first franchisee was Ilfracombe in 1996. Subsequently, it was developed as a brand. Today, it has more than 40 stores in the United Kingdom belonging to 14 families.
