Coffee#1 wins Cafe Chain Sandwich Retailer of the Year

Coffee#1 is celebrating winning yet another top industry award after picking-up the Chain Sandwich Retailer of the Year Award (café category) at the Sammies 2017.

The Sammies (the British Sandwich Industry Awards) is the industry’s most prestigious awards ceremony and the Chain Sandwich Retailer of the Year champions those in the chain sector (10 or more outlets) whose core business is the sale of sandwiches whether made to order; pre-packed on site; bought in pre-packed from a central commissary or where sandwiches are sold alongside coffee and bakery products and who are driving the business forward and achieving the most impressive development in the qualifying period.

Coffee#1 won with the judges noting it “achieved a surprisingly high value for money score from consumers, despite their higher level of spend. Their recommendation level was also the highest of all the operators considered.”

Head of Coffee#1 operations Jo Hamilton-Welsman and Coffee#1 Marketing Manager Sarah Hill collected the award at the ceremony at the Lancaster London Hotel on Thursday 11th May.

Sarah Hill commented: “We are delighted to pick up this prestigious award in a category where there was fierce competition.

“Coffee#1 was nominated for this award by its customers, proving once again how popular our coffee shops have become thanks to the hard work of the teams in our stores.”
