Entrepreneurs cushioned by Love throughout UK Hatcheries


A Leeds-based company is set to ‘cushion’ the seats of a number of entrepreneurs on the world’s largest free business accelerator programme.

Yorkshire-owned Love Bomb Cushions, the UK’s official emoji license holder, is rolling out its emoji range over eight Entrepreneurial Spark Hatcheries across the UK
Having launched their business last year, Love Bomb Cushions has been on board at the Entrepreneurial Spark base in Leeds since February this year.
Providing the fun, emoji cushions to fellow entrepreneurs in Leeds, word soon spread which lead to the Entrepreneurial Spark team placing an order for 300 to fill the offices of further Hatcheries.

Entrepreneurial Spark is a fast-growth organisation designed to offer expert business advice for early stage and growing ventures through it’s unique enablement programme. Entrepreneurs on board the accelerator programme are also given free office space, wi-fi and printing, alongside access to key partners and mentors. With entrepreneurial locations across the UK and India, the fast growing network is set to be softened with the launch of emoji cushions throughout eight properties.

In just one year, Love Bomb Cushions has grown to stock a range of emoji cushions, keyrings and slippers to major retailers across the UK, and the firm has launched a new line, Joe Turds, Turd World®, reviving the nostalgic fun from the nineties.
Sarah Agar-Brennan, Founder of Love Bomb Cushions says:
“It is great to be supported by Entrepreneurial Spark. Having started our company and joined the programme to now featuring in over eight Hatcheries through the UK is truly a fantastic achievement for our business."

Lucy-Rose Walker, co-founder and Chief Entrepreneuring Officer (CEO) at Entrepreneurial Spark, commented: “Since coming on board earlier this year Love Bomb Cushions has completely embraced everything we teach our Chiclets. Grasping every opportunity to showcase the business with a positive #GoDo mindset, I’m looking forward to seeing how the company grows over the coming months.

“The cushions allow us to brighten up our Hatcheries and inject some fun into our working spaces, as well as showcasing the vast array of businesses on board the programme to visitors.”

Love Bomb Cushions will be featuring its emoji range, including some of the most popularly used icons within the hatcheries. For the full range, visit http://www.lovebombcushions.co.uk/collections/all.

Notes to the editor

About Love Bomb Cushions

It started with a kiss...literally! Founder, Sarah Agar-Brennan was shopping around for ideas for her teenage daughter’s birthday and stumbled across emoji pillows from China. It took her several attempts to get them delivered as they kept getting lost in international post but once they arrived they were an instant hit, all her friends wanted one and so the craze locally began.

The quality of the ones ordered weren’t great so, having been in business for more than 20 years, Sarah decided to search a higher quality product. Having been unable to find the right standard of cushion, Sarah took it on herself to source a factory to provide higher finishing and textiles standards. She also decided to increase the size of the pillow range from the widely available 32cm to 36cm - more to cuddle and love!

Since establishing the business less than one year ago, husband Carl Agar-Brennan has joined as sales and operations director and the now-family run-firm has enjoyed phenomenal success. Most impressively, the Leeds-based business is the only firm to hold the official emoji licence to stock the quality products.

Forecasting an impressive £750,000 turnover it its first year, Love Bomb Cushions continues to grow from strength-to-strength.

With a range of more than 60 products including cushions, cushioned slippers, miniature ‘shelf buddies’ and keychains, the firm plans to roll out a number of further novelty lines and is in talks to launch a number of additional exciting ranges to compliment the emojis.

With more than 20 years’ retail experience in the toy industry, buying and selling products from all the over world, Sarah prides herself on selling quality products that last which all the family can enjoy. Sarah is proud that Love Bomb Cushions are exactly that, super soft, cuddly and instantly loveable.
