Valera and Costa Coffee

Staff at Andover Leisure Centre in Hampshire decided to embark upon an exercise of a different kind when a Costa Coffee bar was added to the menu. The team decided that the popular sport, fitness and fun venue was the perfect fit for a coffee shop operation but where to source the all-important counters?

Always raising the bar, Valera came to the rescue with its Tendance Coffee Bar Counter range. With a budget of around £15,000, Valera was able to make the most of its Tendance flexible modular counter runs by adding high bar counters in an attractive U shape. The result is a functional but appealing coffee bar corner, built from scratch and making the most of an under-used space in the leisure centre. Now a focal point and a relaxation area for visitors, fitness fanatics and families alike, the coffee bar is also a great money spinner for the centre, which is run as a charitable trust, thanks to the welcoming layout and inviting ambience.

Valera’s Tendance counters are fully modular, and available in a range of finishes. High and low bars can be mixed and matched, with or without refrigerated understorage. Matching chilled and heated serve over counters are also an option. As at the Andover Leisure Centre, Valera will undertake the complete project through design and installation.
