Wyevale Garden Centres' catering offering wins prize

Grabbing a cup of freshly-ground coffee at one of Wyevale Garden Centres (WGC)' Coffee Grounds has become such an enjoyable experience that the company has won a Restaurant and Bar Design Award for the concept.

Specifically, the group was awarded the gong for "best restaurant or bar in another space (UK category)" after its competition entry impressed a panel of judges made up of leading architects, designers, brand directors and chefs from all over the world.

Jason Danciger, food and beverage director at WGC. said: "We are proud of this achievement and of how far our award-winning Coffee Ground has come since its initial conception. We are delighted that not only is the quality of our coffee praised but also that our design consideration and our innovative use of space has been recognised."

Wyevale’s Coffee Ground concept was launched in September last year (2014) with the aim of cleverly utilizing garden centre space to provide customers with a high quality food and beverage offer as well as a good shopping experience.

All of the Coffee Ground coffee is organic, Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance certified. Care is also taken to minimize the impact on the environment, which is why the coffee grounds are recycled to produce tables, cake stands and compost for UK gardens.

WGC is also the only coffee shop group in the UK to roll out "micro roasting," which means that its baristas can roast small batches of coffee throughout the day, filling the air with coffee aromas and adding to the "theatre" of roasting.
