Coffee and cake business in vintage horsebox gets residency at estate
A Norfolk business offering coffee and cakes from a converted vintage horsebox is enjoying sweet success.
The Original Grinder has secured a residency in the Walled Garden at the Holkham Estate on Thursdays to Mondays from 11am until 4pm.
During the summer months, it will be there seven days a week and Solar Scoops ice cream van is also there.
The business is run by Blaze Carter, 29, who lives in Frettenham near Norwich, and she has a catering background.

Before starting The Original Grinder last summer she was a support worker, but decided to do something that fitted around childcare for her two-year-old son Jenson.
She offers Ethiopian coffees and other hot drinks alongside cakes and tray bakes from local business Buttercream Bakes, which includes Galaxy Caramel brookies and Crème Egg brownies.
There are always gluten-free and vegan options, with oat and coconut milk too.
Mrs Carter said: "I did smaller events at Holkham last year so am very happy and proud to get the residency - my first weekend was busier than expected."
