This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
Discover the fascinating stories behind how your favourite subscriptions originally came to be, the marvellous people involved in lovingly creating and curating each box, plus a few ‘behind the scenes’ snaps.
What sparked your decision to start up your box and how did you get started?
We wanted customers to have the opportunity to enjoy our cakes as a regular treat throughout the year, rather than just for special occasions. So many have told us since we launched our Cake Club how they really look forward to that familiar parcel arriving every month, knowing there is another tasty treat in store for them.
Many are purchased as gifts for those ‘difficult to buy for types’ who don’t want more ‘stuff’, but who love to enjoy something wholesome and delicious now and again. We even have members who invite friends and neighbours around on ‘Cake Club Day’ to share and judge the cakes!
Describe your box in three words?
Wholesome and delicious.
Are you a creator or curator?
What was your most popular box?
How many people are involved with producing your subscription box?
It takes three people to bake, wrap and pack the cakes and another three to box, label and despatch them with our courier.
Which subscription boxes do you subscribe to?
We don't currently subscribe to any ourselves.
Name a celebrity subscriber you’d love to have as a customer?
Gareth Southgate - he seems such a decent bloke and made us all feel happy to be an England supporter for a change. A nice cake might cheer him up the way he cheered us up.
If you could put anything in your box, with money or scarcity no object, what would it be?
A teapot, a cup & saucer, a cake stand and a plate... and perhaps someone to slice it up for you!
What do you love about uOpen?
It’s an exciting opportunity to tell more people about Meg Rivers Artisan Bakery.
