In 2013 Hamza Nabi began working part time at his local Heavenly Desserts while he studied. Little did he know that four years later, he would be opening the doors of his own branch in Liverpool’s prime shopping destination, Liverpool One.

“I started working with Heavenly Desserts around four years ago- I really enjoyed thenature of the work and the environment I was in and I slowly worked my way up into the management side of the business. At the beginning of 2016 I decided I wanted to open a franchise of my own.”

Hamza made the decision to leave university in his second year to focus on opening his own business and was recommended to Portman by the team at Heavenly Desserts.

“The franchisor introduced me to Portman Asset Finance and said that they are a good team and the best people to go to for helping me get the finance I needed to open the store.

My Account Manager, Jordan has helped me out from the top to the bottom and I really appreciate what he has done for me. He’s made it a smooth journey for me and was great at keeping me up to date over the phone and would even respond to emails out of hours which I really appreciated.”

Hamza’s account manager, Jordan, added: “it was a pleasure to assist Hamza with the opening of his first branch in Liverpool. With the support of the customer and franchisor we were able to achieve the acceptances required to finance all of the equipment and fit out costs. I am planning to visit the store on my next trip to Liverpool.”
