Date revealed for new Cheltenham coffee house opening

It has been one of Cheltenham's worst kept secrets that a new café could open on its High Street - but now we can confirm it and reveal the opening dates.

Any yes, as is the way with anyone gunning for high street trade, it will be open before Christmas as it hopes to tempt in some of those shoppers looking for a break.

Planners gave the go-ahead to the latest in a chain using the Triple Two Coffee brand back in August, only paperwork behind the scenes has held things up until now.

Founded by a Gloucestershire partnership of entrepreneurs Sezan Walker and David Hodgetts, the coffee house would be the brand's third in the county - the other being at South Cerney near Cirencester and the other in Cirencester itself.

Actor Ben Miller, who this summer starred in the big screen hit film Johnny English Strikes Again, officially opened the Cirencester town centre café in October bringing in scores of customers.

The business created 10 jobs in the town.

Last night Mr Hodgetts took to social media to reveal the opening date for the Spa town business, which will open in the former Trespass store.

"This is going to be the biggest store to date, holding 100 covers over 2 floors and situated in a prime location on Cheltenham High Street," he said.

Ms Walker and Mr Hodgetts have already owned up to lofty ambitions to see the chain grow to 100-strong franchise businesses in the next four years.

Suppliers to the cafes include the likes of Gloucestershire-based Hobbs House bakery.
