Bury St Edmunds entrepreneurs launch new coffee machine business Abbey Coffee
Enjoying that mid morning cup of coffee, whether at work or in your favourite coffee shop, you could be benefiting from a couple of Bury St Edmunds entrepreneurs who have set up their own business.
Chris Gill and Nathan Oliver worked together for between 10 to 15 years in the coffee machines industry.
Now they have set up their own company, Abbey Coffee, in Stirling House, Abbeyfields, Bury St Edmunds, supplying and maintaining coffee machines.
These range from desktop-style machines to large-scale barista equipment.
The firm supplies machines nationwide to schools, colleges, offices, restaurants and bistros and says it offers good discounts to local customers.
Chris said: “We’ve always worked in Bury St Edmunds and now, with a few month’s trading behind us, it was time to open our own office base in the town. And for Abbey Coffee to operate from Abbeyfields it just seemed the perfect place.”
Chris said: “We have a wealth of experience behind us and know what customers are looking for and know the industry.
“It’s all about making sure our customers are happy.
“Walking away from pretty well paid jobs was definitely a deep breath moment but our customer reviews have been great.”
The firm also wants to expand and is recruiting staff over the coming weeks.
As well as supplying coffee machines, Abbey Coffee also provides a full aftersales support and its own Fairtrade and Arabica coffee.
