The Coffee House

We are looking for someone to join an exciting business who began its story in 2011 in the small Cheshire village of Lymm. Two brothers who oozed passion and with a strong vision to change the way people Eat, Drink and Relax, opened their first coffee house that made great coffee and served a small, classic menu which was made with local produce. Today, The Coffee House is established in 8 communities (and counting), serving thousands of people every week with a substantial range of products which has over quadrupled over the years. The Coffee House has a family of employees who have been chosen as they demonstrate the behaviours and qualities we need to succeed in developing the business and continuously ensure excellent customer service is delivered to our customer.

We have ambitious plans in place with the vision of growing this concept, and to become recognised as the ‘leading independent coffee operator in the North of England’. If you have the skills you think we are looking for, we encourage you to apply and join the family.
