Why Open a Coffee Shop In Cheltenham?
Cheltenham is a spa town in Gloucestershire, bordering the Cotswolds. Historically, it has been dubbed the ‘Garden Town of England’, which gives some idea of the picturesque, peaceful nature inherent to the local area. As it is also a Regency town, Cheltenham is steeped in history, bringing lovers of literature, impressive architecture and heritage to explore its streets and shops.
The population of Cheltenham is just 118,800, making for an intimate yet lively community. With easy connections to nearby Gloucester, Hereford and the Wales border, Cheltenham is in a good position to attract all manner of visitors travelling across the South West. Cheltenham has also rebranded itself as The Festival Town, playing host to over 30 significant festivals every year, making it a vibrant place that experiences a lot of footfall considering its size. The town receives 2,396,700 tourism visits a year.
Along with being a rich historical and cultural hotspot, Cheltenham is also becoming somewhat of a foodie haven, with numerous award-winning restaurants and global cuisines to enjoy. An engaged community who love good food and drink are sure to enjoy consistently delicious coffee in a cosy, independent-feel coffee shop! The perfect place to catch up with friends, get some work done or just relax with a good brew, the many functions of an ideally located coffee shop cannot be underestimated.
You’ll definitely want to be a part of Cheltenham’s community – the town is an exciting place for new businesses looking to make their mark.
