Popping round the cafe for a quick cuppa or a quite 5 mins to yourself is part and parcel of everyday life as is clearly shown by a stroll down any English high street.
The British Coffee Association says that in 2018, despite Britain being a nation of tea drinkers we drank 95 million cups of coffee every day! When coupled with the impulse purchase of a sandwich, biscuits, cake etc shows that cafés are a booming business.
Cafes, coffee shops and tea rooms have a pulling power that attracts many different groups of society, students, workers on lunch breaks and shoppers taking a break. Paramount to creating a customer base is both location and food on offer. Café owners need to consider proximity to amenities such as shopping centers or places of higher education all of which could be associated with customer generation.
Similarly, menu options must have careful consideration. With the growing trend of vegan cuisine these options must be considered. An article from the Guardian advised Veganism, once widely seen as an alternative, extreme lifestyle, is now in the mainstream. Exactly how many people in the UK have eliminated animal products including dairy and honey from their diets is uncertain. One recent survey suggested there could be as many as 3.5 million vegans in the UK.
