A Black Country dessert chain is to create 40 jobs with a new store in West Bromwich.
The Little Dessert Shop has acquired a former Pizza Hut at the Farley Centre in High Street.
Owner Muazzam Ali already has outlets in Wolverhampton and Wednesbury and is planning to open the venue in May.
Founded in 2014, independently run and family-owned, the Little Dessert Shop offers a choice of cakes, crepes, waffles and sundaes and more than 40 flavours of ice cream, gelatos and sorbets.
Mr Ali said: "It will create 40 to 50 jobs which will take the total across the three shops to 120.
"We wanted to take the unassuming dessert and turn it into a creative masterpiece for all to enjoy, born out of a love for fine foods."
James Mattin, managing director of property consultancy Bond Wolfe which put together the deal, said: "Demand for West Bromwich High Street retail units is boisterous.
"Indeed, the remainder of this parade is under offer and inventory along the High Street is very low due to the increase in demand for the town centre."
