Boasting a wide selection of gelatos, waffles, crepes, milk shakes, smoothies and sundaes, Kaspa’s Desserts are a rapidly expanding dessert parlour capitalising on the increasingly popular market of dessert specialist restaurants. This extension of coffee shops and café’s is becoming an increasingly popular market amongst the younger demographic.

Kaspa’s are expected to take occupation by summer 2016 and the new premises will provide 120 covers, 70 situated at ground floor level and a further 50 in the basement.

Julian Welch, Director at Barker Storey Matthews commented, “The popularity of dessert parlours across the nation and, in recent months, particularly in Peterborough proves that this relatively new industry fad are firmly positioning themselves on the British high street. The popularity of these stores and the late night opening hours could perhaps be reflective of the increasing number of young people abstaining from alcohol oriented evenings.”
