Aspinal has eight directly-operated stores, six concessions and three overseas franchise stores, but does the most business through its e-commerce site. The brand recently invested heavily in management and has hired a number of industry experienced senior executives, including Sarah Rotheram as CEO.

The Santander Breakthrough Fund has been specifically set up to support and provide funding for high growth entrepreneurial businesses with proven concept and the potential to expand rapidly; helping established UK businesses to grow faster and create new jobs."
