Heather Boyle, Managing Director of A Slice of Heaven told us about her experience of working with Ards Business Centre…

Introducing A Slice of Heaven

A Slice of Heaven is an Award Winning Dessert Company based in Ards Business Centre in Newtownards.  They have gained a reputation for creating some of the most delicious products in the marketplace. They supply High-end, fresh, hand-made desserts to both the Foodservice and Retail Trade in Ireland.

What was your first experience of Ards Business Centre?

My first experience of Ards Business Centre was to speak with Nichola regarding my accounts.  Nichola was able to help me move our Sage records from another office and set up our computers in the Business Centre to get us up and going.

How did Ards Business Centre support you in starting / growing your business?

The Business Centre supported us with Nichola’s help in the first instance and then with the various Business  courses held.

What courses did you attend or were involved?

  • Social Media Course
  • SEED Course 1 & 2
  • Motivational Courses
  • Website set-up
  • Work/Life Balance

Why did you choose Ards Business Centre as a location for your business?

I took over Slice of Heaven in 2007 and it was already located in Strangford Park

Where do you see your business in 5 years’ time?

We are steadily growing the business and hope to be a major supplier in Ireland of Desserts in both the Foodservice and Retail Markets.

“Ards Business Centre staff  have worked alongside us to help in all aspects of our Business.  It is very daunting to start your own business and it can seem very lonely. It was great to have a helping hand in the background, especially with areas that I had not dealt with before – accounting, VAT, etc.
I would thoroughly recommend any business to start in a unit in Ards Business Centre and to avail of all the services offered.”
