Teenager enjoys sweet taste of success after school days cut short by pandemic

Leamington Editorial 1st Jul, 2020 Updated: 1st Jul, 2020   0

A TEENAGER whose school days were cut short by the pandemic has turned entrepreneur in a bid to beat lockdown.

North Leamington School student Isobel Massey is waiting on the results of GCSEs she wasn’t able to take after exams were cancelled due to coronavirus.

But the 16-year-old has been far from idle while she waits to return to school.

She has set up her own business – and is already enjoying the sweet taste of success.

Isobel founded Sweetiz – a door to door confectionery delivery service – and designed its branding, runs its social media page and is the brains behind the marketing.

She said: “When I found out I wouldn’t be doing my exams, at first I was so disappointed as I had revised heavily and improved so much from where I was at the start of the year, but this has given me a new focus.

“I suddenly found myself with so much time on my hands and was spending far too much money on sweets and junk food and decided to start a service selling sweets at a reasonable price straight to peoples’ door.”

It currently offers two products, a 750g box for £7.50 and a smaller 250g cone for £3, each containing a fun variety of sweetie treats.

She has so far sold more than 25 of her products, but her ambitions are high.

Isobel added: “I want to have a wide choice of products available for people to buy and for my very small business to become successful, enabling me to possibly deliver all over the UK.”
