Tolu is a first for Tootsie Toes, in more ways than one. Not only our first franchisee, but the first overseas – a bit of a trailblazer really!
When Tolu moved from the UK to Abu Dhabi in April 2012 with her husband and daughter, she was already a Tootsie Toes customer and soon ready for a new kind of challenge.
And when she received enthusiastic feedback on her Tootsie Toes framed hand and feet castings from friends in Abu Dhabi, that inspired her to start her own Tootsie Toes franchise and share the joy she experienced when commissioning her sets from Tootsie Toes UK.
Tolu put all her skill, passion and expertise to work, and before long she was well established in the Emirates. In fact, within months of starting, Tolu had already been honoured by the Abu Dhabi Royal family to make a framed set of hand castings of their family.
Since then, Tolu has become well known for her gorgeous craftsmanship and the wonderful experience she gives to all her customers. It’s the Tootsie Toes way. Little things mean so much!
