The bright red van from Cafe2U continues to put a smile on the face of Prestonians!
Cafe2u provides the highest quality espresso coffee, hot chocolate, premium teas and snacks to people in locations where they might not normally be able to get them.
Anne-Marie Craven has a loyal customer base in the Fulwood area and has received wonderful feedback from her coffee connoisseurs who have commented “it’s the highlight of my day” and “it’s the best coffee, anywhere, ever”.
The catchy tune from the Godfather which plays on the van’s airhorn signals that Anne-Marie has arrived on site. Workers can take a quick break to grab their favourite coffee or maybe a hot chocolate. There are also warm breakfast barmcakes, toasties and other quality snacks on board together with lunch options. Anne-Marie runs a daily quiz (just for fun) and a monthly prize draw for customers who have completed their loyalty cards, giving away free coffee to the lucky winners.
The service was particularly welcome during the cold winter months but the freezing temperatures didn’t deter Anne-Marie, she battled the elements to ensure the van turned up on time, every day.
“I’ve been so busy during the last few months of running the Cafe2U Preston North West business and have enjoyed every minute. I love the daily banter with my customers at the back of the van. We chat about the quiz, football, skiing or other holidays and constant discussion about the weather!”
Anne-Marie has also found that businesses welcome the opportunity to use her services to give their employees recognition or reward for a job well done. She has regular bookings for “team treats” where the boss or team leader pays for a delicious hot drink and snack for each employee. It’s a very cost effective way of showing employees they are valued and certainly puts a smile on their faces.
As the nights turn lighter and summer is on the horizon, Anne-Marie is available for evenings and weekends – offering a convenient catering solution to anyone organizing an event.
You can contact Anne-Marie if you want her to visit your place of work for a team treat or if you want to book her for an event at Prestonnorthwest@uk.cafe2u.biz.
