Frankie gets her just desserts with 'Rising Star' award

Frankie gets her just desserts with 'Rising Star' award

26 Mar, 2024

Award recognition for market-based young businesswoman

New Covent Garden Market’s very own Frankie Spivey has scooped the ‘Rising Star’ prize at 2024’s Wandsworth Women’s Enterprise Awards.

Frankie is the founder of Frankie’s Brownies, a growing dessert business creating delicious home-made chocolate brownies from Mission Kitchen, a commercial shared-kitchen space within the market’s Food Exchange building. “It feels amazing to be recognised for all my hard work and determination,” says Frankie, who was up against a shortlist of three other local entrepreneurs.

The Rising Star award – which recognises young women aged 16-35 years whose examples serve to inspire our next generation - crowns an intense period of growth where Frankie’s business has gone from strength to strength.

“It all started for me when I’d bake brownies at home and bring them in work for my colleagues as a treat,” explains Frankie, who started her business in 2020 during the first lockdown. Joining Mission Kitchen back in 2022 proved the catalyst for bigger and better things as Frankie worked with companies such as WeWork, Getir and Compare the Market to create bespoke branded Brownies for events and gifting.

“Now I’ve got six freelance staff, working on producing our recipes, quality control of the products, and arranging delivery direct to clients. Now I’m expanding my production and have signed a distribution deal with a UK-wide restaurant chain.”
