Coffee#1 has opened a brand new coffee shop in Wallingford, Oxfordshire. The Wallingford coffee shop is situated prominently on the market square, with a design that allows it to blend into the existing style of the historic square.
The coffee shop, which opened on the 29 June and can seat up to 89 people, is the third coffee shop opening since the pandemic and has created 10 new jobs in the area.
Founded in 2001 and now operating across Wales, the Southwest, the South Coast, and parts of the Midlands, Wallingford is the 102nd Coffee#1 coffee shop.
Coffee#1, which also has coffee shops in Witney and Bicester, opened its 100th coffee shop in Banbury in 2020. The Banbury opening marked the 9th new opening since it became part of The Caffè Nero Group in January 2019.
Customers visiting the Wallingford coffee shop can relax with premium hand-crafted coffee and an enticing menu that includes breakfast pastries, baps and paninis and an extensive range of cakes.
Coffee#1 Managing Director, Bruce Newman, said: “I’m delighted to be opening in Wallingford.
“It’s a town which I believe will enjoy the warm, welcoming and cosy atmosphere our coffee shops create.
“We firmly believe having a coffee is a reason to slow down and pause and benefit from a time out.
“We’ve designed our coffee shop with that in mind, so there is more space and comfort. I think customers will really enjoy spending time with us.”
Following the opening of Wallingford, Coffee#1 intends to continue its new openings programme, with several more expected this year.
Newman continued: “It’s been really pleasing to see how our customers have missed us and wanted to come back to us since the pandemic.
“That’s a testament to our teams who create such a great connection with their customers.”
