Our Stories

Yorkshire Brand Stories was established by Holly Ashby as a way of reconnecting to the city she grew up in. She wanted to work with local entrepreneurs to grow their businesses by creating powerful collaborations, using local suppliers to deliver the goods and building long lasting relationships with ‘business buddies’.

She wanted to grow the business big enough to bring on board lovely local people who also had a passion for brands, learning new skills and a creative flair. Building an environment where staff members felt supported and valued, had the option for flexible working and a strong emphasis on a good work life balance was a key criteria on what ‘success’ looked like…after all she has 3 munchkins herself!
