Andrew and Claire were a crucial part in my decision in opening my first site, I met them coincidentally (or by fate) about six months before I opened
Brew | Twenty Three.

 They shared their knowledge, passion and advice with me as if they were opening their own site - they both genuinely cared (and still do). They continued to go above and beyond, responded to all my questions and gave me so many points to consider that I wouldn't have thought of.
I was extremely clear on my vision of brew | twenty three and Andrew and Claire never lost sight of that for me and adapted their processes tailored to my business.
Once I was open, my relationship with Andrew and Claire continued, and I can say they went above and beyond for me, and still do.
Andrew and Claire are two of the most genuine, caring, patient and calming people I have worked with and I would recommend them to anyone opening (or thinking of opening) their own shop, no matter their vision.

My Wife and Business partner and I had an idea - to open a coffee shop, but we had NO idea about where to start. 

Most people gave advice, but it was not solid, it was based on a narrow perspective of what to do. There are really no guides for this kind of thing until we came across Andrew and Claire. 

They tailored their advice to our specific needs, and their expertise covers a broad array from menus to social media. 

We have grown in the last two years and attribute that to the excellent advice obtained from Andrew and Claire, and as we continue to grow, they will be part of our plan. 

Don't reinvent the wheel - learn from those that have already done it - that's Andrew and Claire.

The Hub&Spoke Cafe

In July 2020 when we decided to open a coffee shop we had no previous experience so joined the  launch programme in September. We opened to queues in March 2021 after a major refit and in Covid. 12 weeks later we have a solid clientele and just obtained our 5 star EHO  rating.

Doing the launch programme was the best investment we could have made. It made a massive difference to our confidence and motivation. As mentors Andrew and Claire helped us with the big challenges and the detail – they have infinite levels of patience, insight, experience  and knowledge and they really know their stuff, whether it be about layout, equipment, suppliers, menus, procedures, marketing, or pricing, anything really.

Pooling ideas with them made everything come together and our success would not have happened without them

They are also a lot of fun to work with
