A Shrewsbury couple are to run the coffee shop in the town’s University Centre learning and research base at The Guildhall.

Mike and Nicola Dalton already run two successful coffee shops in the town; stop. coffee shop in Greyfriars and stop. cafe bar in Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery. The new venture at the building in Frankwell Quay will create four new jobs.

Co-owner of stop. Nicola Dalton said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to be opening stop. number three at University Centre Shrewsbury. Since we heard that the institution was coming to the town we’ve been looking forward to the positive impact it will have on Shrewsbury.

“We are particularly proud that the University Centre has chosen us, a local, family-owned independent business to run the coffee shop.

“stop. @ UCS will offer the same quality coffee and homemade food that we’ve built our reputation on at our other cafes. Since we opened the first stop. three years ago, we have prided ourselves on offering a really friendly welcome to our customers. Our fantastic team of staff are our real strength and we are so lucky to have them behind us as we begin this new venture.”

University Centre Shrewsbury’s Deputy Provost, Paul Kirkbright said:

“stop. is a great, well-regarded local business and we are delighted that stop.number three is opening at Guildhall, adding to the exceptional environment at our main learning and research centre.

“Alongside new educational, social and cultural opportunities, University Centre Shrewsbury aims to contribute to the local economy in such ways as supporting local businesses and creating new jobs.

“This is another chance to work with and support a Shrewsbury company to grow, as the University Centre takes the next steps in its development.”

stop. @ UCS is opening its doors during University Centre Shrewsbury’s Welcome Week, taking place now (Sunday 27 September to Sunday 4 October 2015).
