Coffee company, Paddy and Scott’s, is set to take over the food and beverage operations for The University of Suffolk this month.
Based on the Waterfront in Ipswich, the University of Suffolk offers a range of food and beverage outlets throughout its campus buildings and Paddy and Scott’s is set to undertake a complete overhaul, introducing its crafted coffee, food menus and customer service.
Jon Reed, brand director at Paddy and Scott’s, said: “This is a hugely exciting project for us. We are incredibly proud of our high energy, entrepreneurial approach to business – and we really hope the students at the University of Suffolk will engage with our strong story of provenance and will love testing out some new coffee-inspired concepts for us.
“We love talking about our coffee, fuelling the ambition of others and we truly believe the University of Suffolk is a great location and values match for us.”
Paddy and Scott’s will be taking over the food and beverage operations from August, taking time to find out what the students want to see and then make improvements to the offer over time.
There are 4 outlets across the campus, serving the 5,000 students that attend the university.
The company said it has future plans to create a barista training centre on site and extend barista training to students of the University.
Reed added: “We want to create a barista training centre to teach the next generation about coffee, growing and roasting. Our aim is to launch a programme that gives students a stepping stone into the industry, but also highlight how much hard work and love goes into each and every cup of coffee.”
