SOHO Coffee Co. expands into travel sector with new store at Bristol Airport

Cheltenham based SOHO Coffee Co. has announced the opening its first company store in an airport location.

The business's new partnership between Bristol Airport builds on an existing network of franchise partners in key airport hubs around the world.

SOHO already has a strong portfolio of stores across the region including as well as partnerships with independent artisanal producers - from family bakers, to cake, jam and chutney makers.

The new store will offer travellers quick, fresh, handmade food throughout the day, including everything from hot sandwich choices such as the vegan meatball marinara, and the dirty bird, to toasted cheesy sausage and onion melts and the full SOHO breakfast.

SOHO Coffee Co. managing director, Penny Manuel said: "We have long had in our plan, our aim to open our very own SOHO airport store in our heartland.

"A regular traveller through Bristol airport, I have observed with interest their intensive programme of investment and improvement during recent times and wanted SOHO to be part of that journey.

"We are especially pleased to be working hand in hand with the airport whose values mirror ours, with sustainability and community high on both our agendas."

Tom Hack, head of commercial at Bristol Aiport added: "Bristol Airport is delighted to welcome back SOHO Coffee to our departure lounge from Thursday 1st October.

"We welcome such a recognisable regional brand which supports local supply chains and offering employment to the region at such an important time. We very much look forward to building a great relationship going forwards."
