The story of Mr Simms Sweet Shoppe started in 2004 in Staffordshire in England. A 39 year old man named Martin Peet,a newsagent and salesroom assistant in DFS, opened the first Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe. With an eye for business he found a site which people would walk past every day and that was big enough. When he finally found the prime site he set about building the shop. After 9 grueling weeks of hard graft he finally fitted a marvelous Victorian style wooden shop although he had failed woodwork in school. The name Mr Simms started at his childs PTA meeting where he was likened to "Mr Simms" a character in a film.Huge numbers from the local habitants he eventually opened a second shop in Stoke on Trent. After opening his sixth shop martin was invited to star in a BBC documentary named "Mind Your Own Business". Mr Simms has now become a 100 shop string franchise in the UK and the first Mr Simms in Ireland was opened in Limerick. For more of the information on Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe click here or here.

By visiting Mr Simms I discovered a wonderful shop with a rich back story and would definitely recommend others to visit it soon.
