The Coffee Cup Story


Owners Steve and Debbie Parsons began trading from the Eastney end of Southsea Seafront.

Despite a slow start, with the guarantee of being open whatever the weather, we soon built up a regular loyal customer base and installed an external decked seating area.

After demonstrating our reliability at Eastney, we were offered the opportunity to open a small Coffee Bar at Clarence Pier, which we gratefully accepted.  
During refurbishment of the Coffee Bar (above), we were again approached and asked if we would like to refurbish and open a much larger Coffee Shop, also at Clarence Pier - again, we gratefully accepted.  

Following on from a gruelling 'Dragons Den' style presentation to Portsmouth City Council, we were chosen above 9 other local Coffee Businesses to be the first company in history to be able to trade from a mobile Kiosk in Portsmouth's Guildhall Square.

We're extremely proud of this achievement.

As we became more popular, we decided it was time to increase the size of the trailer at Eastney and began planning for our Coffee House in this location.  

As a family from Portchester, we realised one of our ambitions by opening a Coffee Shop in our local village in August 2014.


Our biggest project to date!!

After careful planning due to the nature of its location, and to ensure we have something for all of our customers, we opened our Coffee House in the same location that we had been trading from in our mobile Kiosk for the past 8 years.

Our Kiosk, previously sited at Eastney will be permanently located on Bognor Regis Esplanade, West Sussex.  
To celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we threw a party at our Eastney Coffee House (where it all began), with lots of free activities for our visitors.  
We installed a decked seating area outside our Bognor Regis Kiosk.  
We add a new seating area outside our Portchester Coffee Shop.
