Bristol-based café chain, Boston Tea Party, has secured a site in Stratford Upon Avon that will open in March as part of its plans to expand geographically.
The family-run company’s latest venue is located in a conservation area close to Shakespeare’s birthplace on Henley Street. The interior of the building is currently being renovated with plans to provide 150 covers inside in addition to an outside area which will seat 100 people.
The Stratford café will be The Boston Tea Party’s 18th outlet with a further venue planned for the Moseley area of Birmingham in the coming months.
Simon Cable from Fleurets, which brokered the restaurant deal, said: “This is a great unit for Boston Tea Party in a prime location in this historic tourist town of Stratford upon Avon. Being opposite Shakespeare’s birthplace ensures excellent levels of footfall and this will be a welcome addition to the renowned food and drink scene on offer locally.
“Boston Tea Party had been looking for a site in Stratford upon Avon for some time and we are extremely pleased in brokering this deal to this independent family owned company. A further Midlands unit is scheduled to open in the Moseley area of Birmingham in spring 2016.”
The company is currently recruiting staff and looking to fill positions locally.
