Our Story

It all began back in 2011, founded by two brothers with a mission to change the way people Eat, Drink and Relax. 

The first store opened in the beautiful village of Lymm and quickly became a busy daytime eatery serving the local community a wide range of speciality coffee, chilled drinks and homemade foods. 

Fast forward nearly ten years, and the company prepares to celebrate the 10th store opening. 

Armed with the clear vision – ‘to be recognised as the leading coffee operator in the North of England’ The Coffee House presses forward with new ideas for products, store design, and team development. 

The Vision

Our vision at the time of opening was simple, to become the best coffee shop in Lymm Village. Fast-forward nearly a decade and the company has grown significantly employing over 100 people operating across multiple locations in the North West of England.

Over the years The Coffee House has developed in so many ways. The vision has become more refined and our mission is clearer and stronger than ever.

The Future

We wish to be recognised as the leading independent coffee operator in the north of England. We will do this by redefining the coffee experience on our forgotten high streets, selecting locations where we feel our presence makes a difference.

We have always said ‘what we do, we will aim to do well’, with amazing products, served in modern, cosy settings by passionate teams, to every customer. It’s exciting to see what the future holds and we look forward to working with many more valuable stakeholders to make great things happen.

We might be introducing millionaires shortbread, would you like to see it?

Happy Birthday to us!

#tenyearbirthday #weare10 #adecade #happybirthday #milestone #itsourbirthday #thecoffeehouse #coffeehouseonline

This past decade has been no bed of roses. There have been many ups and downs, with challenges that have sometimes felt never-ending and even at points terminal. More recently, we have all suffered and had to endure the effects of the pandemic. The Coffee House, like many other businesses, has constantly been adapting to the changing restrictions. We have thankfully been fortunate and believe we will make it through and thrive for many years to come.

When we think back to those early negotiations with our first prospective landlord, there were already great lessons. Business is about building relationships. It is about trust, honesty, respect, and often putting others ahead of ourselves. We have made mistakes, and some we are not proud of, but what's important is that we have learned from every single one and tried to do better next time. Without our first landlords, Eric and Bridget, taking that chance on us, at the tender ages of only 24, we do not doubt that The Coffee House would not be what it is today. We will be forever grateful for the chances that these two individuals took on what would become a decade-old business.

The list of individuals that we would want to thank is endless. We have worked with many great people over the past ten years and served millions of customers. All of whom contributed to the story in their unique ways.

So thank you to everyone, both present, and past, who have taken part in this journey. We look forward to the next decade of changing the way people eat, drink and relax within their local communities.

Best Wishes

Chris & Ste
