Welcoming Hannah to the team

Hannah has joined the Urban Coffee Company team and will be running the show. Hannah has bags of retail and catering experience, add to that her passion for coffee and people. I think we have ourselves a diamond.

Hannah says “I come from a long line of business owners within the catering industry, from cafe’s & corporate catering, to sausage making and fairground owners! After A-levels (English, Classical Civilisation, Design Technology and French), bar work was the initial path I took to fund my university studies which was where I found I loved dealing with the general public. Whilst at Uni (UEA Norwich, studying Culture, Literature and Politics) I worked as a receptionist which confirmed this love of people interaction. After I graduated I did the ‘travelling thing’, where I mainly hung around Singapore and India and met some wonderful people and learnt a great deal about many different amazing cultures. On returning, I began working as a Waitress and was head-hunted by a buffet-style restaurant owner who offered me the job as General Manager which I immediately jumped into and discovered my skill of managing people. From here I went on to work as a General Manager for a Bar/Club until I met Simon and Amir-and the rest, as they say, is history! ”
