Our Story

Hi, we’re Chris and Stephen, brothers and founders of The Coffee House. We had a life-long dream of opening a chain of premium coffee shops, that will serve the most delicious food and drink. Our passion is to create a unique store environment for our customers that will evolve the way people EAT, DRINK and RELAX in their local community.

Our adventure began when we took the plunge in 2010 to open our first store in our home village of Lymm. In the space of ten years, we have rapidly grown from one store to seven, with three more due to open in Runcorn, Warrington, and Bellevale by mid-2021.

Our coffee blend is the heart of our business and is sourced from a local Roastery, this ensures that fresh tasting coffee is served by our trained baristas every day, and what also makes us different from the larger chains is our ability to make our delicious products in our Central Production Unit using ingredients that are specially selected from local and other independent businesses.

We are a forward-thinking company and pride ourselves on creating new and innovative ways of working. Being a fast-paced, independent chain of coffee shops enables us to create a culture where each member of staff feels a part of The Coffee House family.

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 close to 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.

The Coffee House to open in Runcorn Shopping City

Remaining optimistic throughout these uncertain times The Coffee House have managed to adapt to the various stages of the past year, and even in the darkest periods of the pandemic, some of the best lightbulb moments happened for them.

The Coffee House took the opportunity to reflect on their overall brand and offerings, explains Chris Shelmerdine, Owner ‘‘Our team has grown significantly, and we are already excited to see the new ideas flowing. Our product ranges have taken new leaps forward, offering a more comprehensive range such as vegan and gluten free options, we think you will love them’.

This year is a major milestone for the company who will be celebrating their 10th year anniversary in July. Their ambition for 10 stores to be open in their 10th year, is on schedule. Their 7th store opened in Bootle last December and will be followed by their 8th in Runcorn Shopping City next month. It’s yet again another fantastic opportunity for this Independent Business based in the Northwest.

Runcorn Shopping City Centre Manager, Dave Pearman tells us,“We are now delighted to welcome Coffee House to Runcorn Shopping City. They have done a fantastic job in creating a modern, warm and friendly setting offering visitors enjoyable food and drinks supported by service that will create the right level of experience for those that visit. This is a great addition to our Centre that will create a new and exciting place for people to come enjoy and relax”
