An independent Kettering coffee shop is having a revamp in 2014.

Bewiched, in High Street, will be redecorated over the next eight weeks in response to customer feedback, says director Matt Fountain.

He added: “The shop will be more rustic-looking with tongue and groove panelling and pastel colours.

“We are also expanding our counter area to incorporate a new back bar area for our milkshake preparation in readiness for the summer.”

James Franklin, store manager, said: “We have had so much positive feedback about the Bewiched coffee blend and we have converted many people, but in 2014 we are going to make it even better.

“Our roasters will be tweaking it over the next eight weeks, it will retain the taste profile many of our customers have come to love but it will be even smoother and sweeter.”

The firm, which also has branches in Corby and Wellingborough, has announced it is opening another coffee shop in Peterborough and hopes to open one more in Northamptonshire this year.

Mr Fountain added: “We have signed up to the Rushden Lakes development based on the assumption that planning is approved, so we have some exciting times ahead.”
