Popolo Ceramico is the fastest growing, multi-award winning, mobile personalised ceramics business in the UK that specialize in capturing baby and children’s hand and footprints in paint, clay and plaster. We also capture paw prints, host pop-up paint your own events, ceramic parties, school workshops and much more.
Since COVID-19, we have pivoted our business model and we are now successfully operating as a ‘ceramic takeaway service’ working mainly from home around our families. We deliver/ collect our ceramic takeaway boxes once/twice per week, safely leaving/collecting boxes on/from the customers doorstep. All boxes are thoroughly washed between rentals, to ensure everyone is kept safe. Customers paint their own ceramics and capture their own hand/footprints and paw prints (with guidance from us) We then finish off the ceramics at home in our own time. We also host online parties and workshops which have been a huge hit. Some of our more established branches have been taking orders for more than 20 boxes per week, with a turnover of over £1,000 per week!
“Operating as a takeaway pottery business fits in great with family life. The boxes have been incredibly popular and I’m also juggling home schooling my 2 children as well as working, so being able to work flexibly from home has been amazing.” Ali (Popolo Ceramico Chichester & Arun)
“I started my franchise just before we went into lockdown. As a new franchise, I was unsure how popular the ceramic takeaway boxes would be with me being a new business, however once I started advertising, I’d booked 18 boxes within my first week!” Marie (Popolo Ceramico Brighton & Hove)
