Local focus for new cafe in town centre
Commenting on her decision to set up in business, Maureen said: “It is something I have always wanted to do and now I have got the chance. Before working for the NHS I worked for Sainsbury’s at Shorehead for 12 years in their coffee shop and before that in the canteen at Brook Motors.”
Maureen, who lives at Golcar, said Chrysanthemum aimed to compete with its rivals on customer service and quality products locally-sourced.
“We need to support our local suppliers,” she said. “We need to support the local community and keep the money in the town. We can’t keep sending it away to London and other places.”
Chrysanthemum seats up to 43 people and has been decorated in pale colours with dark wood furniture to create a cool, quiet and calm environment.
Maureen added: “We have background music, but it is not intrusive.”
