One week in business...218 coffees later

Updated: Sep 2, 2021

I did it! I have made it through my first week in business as Sarah’s Coffee Shop and it has been fantastic!

In just one week I have sold an incredible 218 coffees, 120 sandwiches, salads and wraps and 62 cakes – on two of the days I even sold out of sandwiches! The support has been fantastic.

I have had a great week getting to know people who work on Severalls Business Park and it has been lovely to see people returning for more. My local MP has even requested a visit to try out some of my tasty treats!

Word of Sarah’s Coffee Shop has spread like wildfire across social media which has helped me gain more than 450 followers. Customers have been praising my scrumptious cakes, letting their colleagues know where their yummy sandwiches were from and even making suggestions of new products that Sarah’s Coffee Shop could offer.

Just this week, following requests, I have introduced vegan and gluten free options, and I will continue to listen and do my best to deliver any other ideas that come my way!

The Colchester Gazette wrote a great article at the beginning of the week which outlined my vision for my new business venture and while some people might think it was crazy to start a new business in the middle of a pandemic, I am so ready to take on this challenge that has been a long time in the making.

I am so pleased to be offering the office workers of Severalls Business Park a good coffee and a decent bite for lunch.

So, pop in between 7.45am and 2.30pm, Monday to Friday and let Sarah’s Coffee Shop keep you fuelled and energised for your working day!

Follow Sarah’s Coffee Shop on social media for regular updates on what I have available each day and see if I can’t tempt you to a slice of cake.

Thank you for all of your support Severalls Business Park, I think we are going to get on just fine!
