Cafe2U have received national accreditation levels for sixteen of its mobile coffee outlets in the Beverage Standards Awards 2013, making it the franchise’s most successful year ever in the national accolades.
“Cafe2U have received accreditation, and best drink awards each year for the past 6 years, but to get 16 outlets scoring either ‘good’, ‘excellent’ or ‘outstanding’ in 2013 is a remarkable achievement and one we are all very proud of,” said Tom Acland, managing director of Cafe2U UK.
Organised by the Beverage Standards Association, the UK’s out-of-home non-vending refreshment industry trade association, these awards assess and recognise high standards of hot drinks service and facilities. All nominees are evaluated by anonymous, trained assessors over a period of several months.
Will Vernon, operations director, represented Cafe2U at the awards dinner at Fulham Palace, London on the 14th October, and watched the Cafe2U winners receive their awards. He commented: “We are absolutely delighted and thrilled for all our franchise partners. To have so many of them scoring so highly is a testament to how hard they work, their attention to detail, and the support and training they receive from Cafe2U.”
Explaining why the awards are so important to him and the Cafe2U franchise network, Acland added: “The BSA competition and awards evening is now firmly established in the Cafe2U calendar and continues to demonstrate not only Cafe2U’s commitment, but our franchise network’s commitment, to delivering exceptional coffee and other hot drinks to our customers, every day, whatever the weather!”
Cafe2U is the world’s largest mobile coffee franchise with over 130 mobile coffee vans in Australia and just under 60 in operation in the UK.
