Hinckley’s Delightful Desserts branch, which was located on Waterloo Road, near Hinckley bus station and Iceland Foods, has quietly closed its doors for good.

The localised Facebook page has been permanently removed from the social media sharing site – and they are no longer accepting orders on delivery platforms.

Hinckley Free Press rang the dessert parlour for further details, but there was no answer.

It was best known for serving up sweet treats like waffles, crepes, cakes, cheesecakes, ice creams and sundaes.

It offered people the chance to dine-in, or have food delivered to their homes.

The Hinckley branch of the international dessert franchise opened in February 2019, and it was owned by the husband and wife duo of Joy Munns and Kent Munns.

The interior of the unit remains untouched – and has not yet been emptied out.

Chairs have been stacked up in piles, with a few tables remaining.

A sign, showing the social distancing rules, is also in place next to the entrance – and the “sorry, we are closed” sign has aptly been hanged up on the front door.

A former staff member revealed in a comment posted on Facebook community forum, Spotted Hinckley, that the branch had closed just before Christmas – and they further thanked all of the ‘lovely’ customers who had paid a visit over the years.

Another commenter, who once served as a delivery driver for the dessert parlour, confirmed the closure.

A spokesperson for the franchise has been approached for comment by the Free Press, but did not comment at the publication (Thursday, 13 January).
