A YOUNG entrepreneur has ambitions to expand his bath bomb business nationally after opening his first site at an underground leisure development in Bradford.

Adam Harrison, 25, has opened a micro stall for his business, called H&L Bath Bombs, in the tunnel entrance at Sunbridgewells, a site which features shops and bars and is located in the city centre.

He opened up at the start of this month after setting up the business by spending £50 on a company website two years ago.

His firm has grown since, with online orders coming in from across the UK, Germany and the USA.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

The firms sell more than 180 items online and and 23 items in store in Sunbridgewells.

Some of the items on sale from the firm include doughnut-themed bath bombs, cocktail-themed bath bombs, including margaritas, and diamond-shaped gemstone items.

They also have a range of Halloween-themed bath bombs, including aniseed, coconut and lime and fennel and orange flavoured items.

They also sell items in their range made using Shea Butter and even an Angel Delight inspired bath bomb.

Mr Harrison was working as a cleaner before setting up H&L Bath Bombs and used cash left over from a tax return to initially help to fund it.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

He says he saw a gap in the market, as there was not a shop already specifically selling bath bombs in Bradford.

The new physical stall has opened to complement the firm's online business.

Mr Harrison, of Holme Wood, said: "I'm hoping to expand the business in the future and open a large shop in Bradford and open shops in towns and cities across the country.

"I decided to open the business as you don't know what's round the corner.

"I want to help to give inspiration to other people my age to influence them to set up a business of their own.

"I started it from using £50 to set up a website two years ago.

"I'm Bradford born and bred and this is my first business.

"I thought no-one is selling bath bombs in Bradford, so why not?"

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

Mr Harrison works alongside other micros stalls at Sunbridgewells including Coffee Booth.

The business is run by Lina Easter and started trading for the first time when the site reopened on July 22 after being shut due to the pandemic.

It is an independent business providing coffees made from freshly roasted beans, sourced from several Fairtrade farms around the world. It is Mrs Easter's first coffee-related business.

Sunbridgewells' attractions include a host of bars and businesses selling food and drink. These include The Gin, Rum and Champagne Bar, which was formerly known as The Gin Bar.

The £1.9million complex opened to the public in December 2016, with more than 20,000 visitors in its first two weeks.
