Cafe2U serving coffee to the stars

It’s been a case of ‘Lights, camera, action!’ for Cafe2U franchisees recently, with a host of them serving the casts and crew of some of the most well-known programmes on television.

The franchise is the largest in its sector in the UK, with more than 60 distinctive red mobile coffee vans serving award-winning coffee drinks and snacks at ‘non-traditional’ work locations including film and TV sets, studios and locations across the UK. Set and studio managers have been keeping their cast and crew happy with coffee and snacks during the day, without the expense of having to run a full-time facility. Cafe2U franchisees have been working on renowned productions including Game of Thrones, The Fall, Call the Midwife, Grantchester, Mr Selfridge, Frankenstein, The Man from Uncle and also with X Factor winners Diversity. 
The appropriately-named Paul Newman, owner of Cafe2U Rochester, who was a business manager for McDonald’s Restaurants before buying his franchise, regularly stops at The Historic Dockyard Chatham, where Call the Midwife and Mr Selfridge are made. He said: “Sometimes I’m invited to park so near to the set that I fear I’m going to end up actually in the film! The crew from Mr Selfridge let me park really close so I can serve the make-up crews while they are working, I love it!”
