A frozen yoghurt cafe has opened in memory of a family member who passed away last year.
The new Blueberi cafe in the High Street has been open for around a month and sells frozen yoghurt with a choice of 12 toppings, as well as sandwiches, paninis and cooked breakfasts.
James Jandu opened the business with his wife Gabriella and it is run by the whole family. It was originally opened in memory of James’ father-in-law Thani Ram.
James, 40, said: “My father-in-law died in December. He was someone who really liked food, he loved cooking. So we set this up in memory of him.
“We also wanted to run it as a family business, obviously the main bread winner of the family is now gone so we wanted to do something that the whole family could be involved in.”
James was originally born in East Africa, but moved to Bedford with his family when he was seven years old. He now splits his time between Goa, America and the Uk.
And he is not the only business mind in the family - his sister Satpal Grewal founded the Eat Natural chain.
James added: “Thani was very much into charity work. He always loved feeding people. If he was here he would have been in the kitchen.”
The family also set up a charity that helps start up small businesses in developing countries.
