Hotel Chocolat has posted “another strong” set of results, which chief executive Angus Thirwell attributed to offering its customers a “wider variety of sales channels”.
The specialist retailer posted a 14% increase in sales to £91.7m during the 26 weeks to December 29. Underlying EBITDA increased 7% to £18.5m, up from £17.3m the previous year.
During the period Hotel Chocolat opened nine new locations in the UK, two in the USA and three in Japan, which contributed to a three percentage point rise in sales growth.
