Paula and Alan Cassady-Bishop have been selling their home-made treats online and on market stalls since she was made redundant in 2010.
This morning the doors opened to their first high street store in Kimberley.
She told ITV News Central:
Everything is made in the shop from locally sourced natural ingredients and 90% is actually from Kimberley itself.
The range includes Chocolate Eclaws, Pupcorn and their biggest seller Cherry Barkwell.
The term 'barkery' was coined in america but this is the first shop of it's kind in the East Midlands and only the second they know about in the UK.
Their secret? Nothing goes to market without the approval of their chief tester; Bryn.
Paula and Alan plan to grow their wholesale business and eventually open new stores in Nottingham.
