The Chuckling Cheese Company make the finest quality, artisan cheese from their family farm in Lincolnshire. They started out by selling at food events and shows, then moved into bricks and mortar in Skegness. Now with two further stores and three kiosks, The Chuckling Cheese Company sell their range of over 30 different types of cheese, including unique flavour combinations such as gin, chilli, and charcoal. They will use the funds raised to open additional kiosks in popular shopping centres to increase their footfall, using the skills learnt from event stands.

Delicious cheese with a twist

The Chuckling Cheese Company was founded in 2012 by Stuart and Emma. We began by selling our now-famous cheese produced by the family farm, Lymn Bank, at events such as Good Food shows, chilli festivals, and country shows. We opened our first shop in Skegness in 2016, with all our Lincolnshire produce available. Last year, we then opened two further stores, one in Doncaster and one in Middlesborough, and three kiosks in Derby, Nottingham, and the Trafford Centre. We've taken our knowledge of event trading and applied it to our retail spaces: for example, we have low glass display to encourage interaction with out products and free samples available for tasting.

Our best sellers include classics like our Skegness Blue, as well as our more unique flavour combinations such as our famous chilli-infused 'Flamin Heart', our jet black charcoal cheese, and our creative orange and whiskey creation. We've recently launched our most ambitious flavour yet, the Botanist Gin infused cheddar, crafted with juniper berries to give the flavour of a gin and tonic. In addition to cheese, we offer a wide selection of chutneys, baked good, and sweet treats, like fudge. Our beverage selection is ever-growing, encompassing beer, wine, and spirits with an artisan edge to match our own. Sample our delicious products and hampers when you invest through the rewards offered below.

We're looking to raise funds to open more kiosks in a number of Intu shopping centres in the UK. This will allow us to keep letting costs down and flexible, while attracting a large footfall in busy locations. With the money raised in this campaign, we will purchase the last of the required items for these kiosks, and cover installation costs, with the aim of being up and running for the busy Christmas trading period.
