Pick Yo Mix was originally launched in late 2019, just a few months before the UK was hit with the COVID pandemic. For some businesses, especially startups, this could have been the worst timing ever, however, fortunately for pick and mix sweets, the UK went mad for the retro classics and Pick Yo Mix grew fast.
Pick n mix delivery became a big business during 2020-2021 as a large percentage of the population were sitting at home, either working or looking after their family.
Pick Yo Mix became known for high quality sweets, delivered promptly in shiny packaging. They developed a very active and loyal social media following on Instagram and gained plenty of great reviews from customers.
During COVID times, Pick Yo Mix thrived and expanded into new premises, they also hired more staff to help pick and pack the large volumes of orders.
When COVD restrictions began to relax in the summer of 2021, order volumes dropped significantly. Maybe this was to be expected? However, as a new business that had experienced fast growth it hit the company hard and other companies such as Sweetzy, Candy works & You pick we mix were able to weather the storm far better.
The original founders of Pick Yo Mix decided to cease trading after months of attempting to make the business work, we were able to acquire the brand and turn it into what you see today.
