IN A FIRST for the international premium dessert franchise, Heavenly Desserts opened its first kiosk in Livingston, West Lothian on Friday 1st December.

Located within Livingston Designer Outlet’s Food Quarter, the latest Heavenly Desserts ‘Pico’ restaurant format marks the brand’s fifth location in Scotland, one of its 50+ locations in the UK and the final new location opening of 2023. 

The Livingston dessert hub will offer bespoke morning and afternoon menus, giving sugar-loving shoppers on-the-go treats at affordable prices. Dessert lovers fear not – the brand’s signature Croffle, a croissant-come-waffle hybrid, will be available on the menu, as well as a selection of mouthwatering waffles, milk cakes and no-alcohol drinks. 

The morning menu will include a range of hot drinks accompanied by a Cinnamon Swirl, Apple and Blackcurrant Crumble Jack, and the sweet deal of a freshly baked Croffle and hot drink available for £4.95.  

Heavenly Desserts takes the place of SpudULike alongside a range of established food brands – such as McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, and Subway – in Scotland’s largest designer outlet, situated just ten miles from Edinburgh. 

The Hundal family, franchisees of Heavenly Desserts Livingston, said: “Heavenly Desserts is an innovative brand with a professional approach to its products and service, and one that I’m really pleased to be partnering with to launch its first ever kiosk to the sweet-toothed locals of Livingston. 

“My wife and business partner have been bringing our children to Livingston Designer Outlet for many years and know the surrounding area well. We’re both very fond of desserts and spotted a unique gap in the local food market, as no one offers the quality, experience and taste in desserts that Heavenly Desserts prides itself on. 

“Although this is our first franchise experience with Heavenly Desserts, our belief in the brand and its values led us to establish a longer-term partnership with Yousif and his team, and we are really excited to be opening a number of additional Heavenly Desserts restaurants in Scotland soon.” 

Heavenly Desserts’ recent menu update sees its entire offering revamped to build on trending flavour profiles and unique creations to inspire and delight customers. New options include the brand’s first ever vegan croffle, a delicious Cinnamon Monkey Bread, and the unique Chocolate Bonbon – a cheesecake encased in chocolate served with delicious trimmings. 

Yousif Aslam, co-managing director of Heavenly Desserts, said: “Our latest opening at Livingston is one that we’ve all been looking forward to with great anticipation, due its new kiosk-style format being the first of its kind for our brand. We decided to term the new kiosk format Pico, as this takes inspiration from the Spanish word to show a smaller quantity.” 

“One of the key values of Heavenly Desserts is to be an innovator and trendsetter in the world of premium desserts, and our launch in Livingston is emblematic of that ethos. We wish the Hundal family every success for the launch and beyond, and look forward to welcoming the people of Scotland to our fifth location in the country with the very best desserts we have to offer.” 

The new kiosk will be open 10am-7pm from Friday-Wednesday and 10am-8pm on Thursday in line with extended shopping hours in December. Heavenly Desserts will be available to order from the venue through Uber Eats and Deliveroo from the venue until 9pm Monday-Wednesday, and 10pm Thursday-Sunday. 

The Heavenly Desserts kiosk is located at the Food Quarter in Livingston Designer Outlet, Almondvale Avenue, Livingston, EH54 6QX.
