Dessert business continues to scoop up customers
Posted on Monday 11th September 2017
Kaspa’s is serving up delicious treats to visitors to Newport city centre since openings its doors more than three months ago.
It was one of the projects that received financial assistance from the Welsh Government-funded Vibrant and Viable Places programme which was led in Newport by the city council, and ended in March.
Adam Anwar, one of the owners of the new business, said: “The council was amazing and helped so much. Their assistance has made such a difference and made sure we were able to meet our deadlines for opening.”
Councillor Jane Mudd, Newport City Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing, popped in to have a look at the new business and meet Mr Anwar.
“For many years, this building was home to an ironmongers and locksmiths before becoming a clothes store which moved to new premises in the city centre. It was then empty for some time so it is great to see it being brought back to life.
“As a council, we are committed to doing what we can towards the continued regeneration of the city centre and this has to be done in partnerships with the private and third sectors, including property owners.
“We have some schemes offering financial assistance to entrepreneurs while our business services team can provide expert advice and information.”
