Costa in Cookham
If you think that the national chains are just opening in big towns with high footfall, think again. Cookham near Maidenhead, Berkshire has a total population of 5,500 and the site had been a pub and then a succession of failed Indian restaurants. It has just opened and is already busy. The coffee and cafe revolution continues and smaller operators will have to up their game to compete.
Chris Brown, Charles Manners, Ian Doughty and Tracey Fairclough are Directors of catering consultants Turpin Smale.
Clients include clubs, theatres, visitor attractions, stately homes, garden centres, conference centres and just a few cafes.
