Yamba Fudge Shop is a sweet deal for the right buyer

A COUPLE who have devoted much of their lives to confectionary could have a sweet deal for the right person.

After little more than one year at the helm of Yamba Fudge, Colin and Frances Bagnell are selling the business due to health problems.

The former owners of the Darrell Lea shop in Prince St, Grafton said there is great potential for the right buyers.

"Really, this would suit someone a little bit younger than Frances and I," Mr Bagnell said.

"We're both in our 60s so we weren't able to put in as much as we could have once.

"Someone with more marketing ability could really develop this into something."

Mr Bagnell said all the fudge and nougat was made on the premises and the couple had maintained their links with Darrell Lea.

"We also have a number of wholesale buyers we sell to," he said.

He the shop was the only fudge wholesaler and retailer on the North Coast and Northern Tablelands.

"We even sell into Warwick in south east Queensland," he said.

Mr Bagnall said making fudge was an easy skill to learn for anyone who knows their way around a kitchen.

"It's a clean business," he said. "You can make your fudge in a couple of days each week but once you've cleaned up you're pretty much right."
