Hasan and Linzi took over the reigns of Treats in 2017. The event was truly memorable for the married couple, as 7 years previous it was a figment of their imagination. The dream and inspiration of owning a family run eatery was conjured whilst the couple lived in the ancient city of Istanbul and frequented the vast array of beautiful atmospheric cafes and tea houses. On returning to live permanently in the UK in 2013, they decided it was time to turn their dreams into reality. With lots of blood, sweat, tears, saving hard for 4 years and Hasan’s 15 years plus of expertise working in the hospitality industry, they finally acquired the lease for Treats on 1st November 2017 and accomplished just part of their plan…… The full realization was achieved with the news of the birth of their baby boy, Miran, in 2019. The Gergin Family could now say they were complete and had achieved their dream of owning a family run business.
