TBT With CKHQ
by Maddy de Winter, 31st October 2019
So here at CKHQ we're taking you all on a trip down memory lane with us! Throwback Thursday happens right here on our blogs EVERY Thursday! We will be chatting to the founders, Jamie Laing and Ed Williams about the growth and development of the Candy Kittens brand!
Stay tuned WEEKLY for unknown facts, some hilarious stories and an insight into Candy Kittens!
Can you please tell us about your first office, where are you now, and if there are any plans to expand!
J: So our first office was just off the Kings Road in Chelsea. We were super lucky and got ourselves a sweet deal!
E: Yeah fortunately for us we got a really good deal in a building that was about to be knocked down. The office wasn't going to be there much longer and it was really small (perfect for us) so we got a really reasonable rate!
J: We weren't there for too long, and then we moved to Fulham! We had way more space (almost too much space initially)!
E: Haha yeah we were knocking around this office when we first got here, there were only 3 of us!
J: It was an epic move to be fair we had more space, it way way more professional, it was cleaner and more official. All round it made everything more legit.
E: We've been here for 4 years now and we're getting extremely tight on space as the team has grown.
J: Yeah we want to expand and really make our own space. Our next step is to have our own building, brand it up and make it our own. We're moving very soon so watch this space 👀
E: I'm so excited for us to have much more control over the office decor and really put our CK stamp on the new place!
J: It's actually pretty crazy to think how far we've come. Initially, we were a really small team of 3 people, and everyone did everything!
E: The change is pretty massive, we initially had no specific job roles and everyone got really stuck in. But now we have much more structure, everyone we've recruited since then have been recruited for a specific role. We sort of have it all mapped out now for how we want the team to grow!
J: Watch this space guys we've got big things to come!
