Coffee#1 to open four new sites

SA Brains owned Coffee#1, which currently operates sites in Wales and the south of England, has lined up a further four sites to open within the next three months, taking its portfolio to 35 sites.

The group, which was named Café/Coffee Bar Chain Award at the Café Society Awards for the fifth year running last month, will open in Leominster, Shirley in Southampton, Torquay and Weymouth. The Southampton opening in August will become its most easterly launch as it looks to expand further across the south coast.
