  • The award-winning Derby Pyclet Company has secured a £29,254 grant from Derby Enterprise Growth Fund to accelerate its ambitious growth plans and create up to six full and part time jobs in the city. Derby Pyclet Company will retain its café in Derby Market Hall in the Cathedral Quarter and will now expand its production to Darley Abbey Mills –building a contemporary  production ‘pod’within a 1400 sq ft historic disused warehouse.  Support from the £20 million Derby Enterprise Growth Fund (DEGF), part of the Government’s Regional Growth Fund and run by Derby City Council, has also funded the purchase of a mobile bakery trailer and vintage liveried vehicle.This will enable the company to operate at open air markets in the county and cater for a wide range of events from country fairs to weddings. Money has also been invested into a new website which will be the platform for a national mail order canapé service. Martin Reid, who runs the Derby Pyclet Company with business partner Mark Hughes, explained: “The support from Derby Enterprise Growth Fund has enabled us to accelerate our expansion plans and we are very excited about the future. “As well as giving us the means to take on more staff and extend our reach,a key aspect of our new production site will be to launch our ‘revolution’ to drastically reduce our environmental impact.  “Over the next 18 months, we aim to source 90% of our ingredients from within a ten mile radius.  We are aiming to generate zero waste through a number of measures including donating produce daily to food banks and homeless shelters. And, by working with local green energy suppliers, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. “Having become a popular fixture in the Market Hall, where we intend to remain, the increased production capacity will enable us take our pyclets and oatcakes whose origins are in the city to a wider audience both locally and nationally via the internet.” Derby Pyclet Company won the independent retailer of the year title in last year’s Derby Retail Awards.  The company started life in 2011 selling pyclets and oatcakes on the market place and shortly afterwards moved into the Market Hall where production is currently based. Derby City Council Director of Regeneration Richard Williams said: “Derby Pyclet Company is an entrepreneurial company who saw a niche in the market and have worked hard to develop a successful business. “The increased production and delivery capacity, supported by DEGF, will create much needed local jobs for local people and their commitment to environmental sustainability is commendable.” Applications for the Derby Enterprise Growth Fund continue to be accepted by Derby City Council.

  • An American jewellery company has chosen Derby’s Cathedral Quarter to open its first UK flagship store – paving the way for regional and national expansion. Filthy Rich has opened in the Cornmarket.  The store specialises in authentic replicas of iconic jewellery and accessories owned and worn by legends of the past, as well as fun and chic items inspired by today’s biggest celebrities. There are three core ranges. The Jacqueline Kennedy collection featuring iconic pieces worn on the world’s stage by the former American First Lady. The collection includes jewellery given to her by John F Kennedy and Aristotle Onassis and have been licensed through the Kennedy Library Foundation. The Hollywood collection of replicas of famous pieces from the golden age of the cinema.  These include copies of Marilyn Munroe’s platinum and diamond eternity band, given to her by husband Joe DeMaggio after their 1954 wedding and the emerald earrings worn by Vivien Leigh in ‘Gone with the Wind’. The Hollywood Collection is licensed and manufactured under strict specifications through contracts with celebrities’ families, foundations,trusts and representatives to ensure accuracy and quality. Finally, the Contemporary collection includes jewellery worn by stars and celebrities today from Princess Diana’s engagement ring worn by the Duchess of Cambridge to pieces from the catwalk worn by Angeline Jolie. Filthy Rich was established in Florida 11 years ago by entrepreneur Mike Shurtleff who bought a replica of the Crown Jewels which he displayed in his store in International Drive, Orlando.  This was then joined by a collection of replica jewellery worn by Marilyn Monroe which was an instant hit with visitors and the collections were born. The company now operates in eight different countries with 800 outlets. Derby store manager Cara Mills explained: “Filthy Rich is extremely popular with shoppers in the USA who want to wear glamorous and iconic jewellery made famous by the stars of stage and screen at an affordable price.  “The company were looking for somewhere in the middle of the UK to open their first flagship store here and were attracted to Derby due to the demographic profile of the city and surrounding area and the affordability of the shop leases. “I was appointed to set up the Derby store and was keen to open in the Cathedral Quarter which is such a unique part of the city centre and attracts just the clientele that we want. “Despite the fact that money is still tight, our research shows that women continue to be keen to refresh their wardrobe with bright and beautiful jewellery and accessories, buy something for a special event or as a gift. “The unique things about our jewellery is that each piece comes with its own special history and becomes a real talking point.” Cara continued that the Cathedral Quarter store will soon be followed by an expansion throughout the Midlands. “Rather than shopping centres, we are looking at high street locations and market towns in particular. “We will be making Our Cornmarket store the UK headquarters with offices and training rooms to support staff as the company expands in the UK.” Martin Langsdale, chair of the Cathedral Quarter Management Group, which drives forward activities under the area’s Business Improvement District status, concluded: “The reputation of the Cathedral Quarter as a quality destination with a diverse range of property continues to attract high calibre businesses into the area. “We are obviously delighted that Filthy Rich has chosen this part of the city centre to site their UK flagship store.”
