In 2013, on a cold wintery evening at the Erdigg Christmas market is where Helen and I met for the very first time. After a short while, we quickly knew that we shared very similar worldly interests and our work ethics and attitude towards our businesses were very much in tune.
In the early part of 2014, Helen and I set up shop on the small industrial estate in Llay, where we baked and cooked and made delicious foods which we took to markets to sell. Cleopatra’s Foods very quickly got a fan base, and before we knew it we required a factory outlet to sell to customers who had driven miles to come and purchase our products.
We renovated the factory unit next to our production unit, and before we knew it we had built the very first Cleopatra’s Coffee Shop.
Life on the industrial estate was grand, and we learned alot from our customers and what they wanted from our brand. In July 2015, we were very fortunate to open our store in the gorgeous village of Holt. We took what we had learned over the period of time in Llay and put our knowledge of great coffee, fantastic food and our passion for what we wanted to do and opened up Cleopatra’s Coffee Shop & Bistro.
Pop on into the shop, and have a chat with myself or Helen and see what new and exciting plans we have in mind for our futures.
Philippe & Helen
