Egan Hospitality, the Irish catering company, is to spend €2 million opening 10 branches of Soho Coffee in Ireland. In a climate saturated with coffee outlets, it is Soho Coffee’s wider selection of food products that makes it distinctive. Chris Copner, who along with his business partner Penny Manuel purchased the firm, stated, “Obviously there are lots of chains of coffee — Costa, Starbucks, Insomnia — companies like that. Where we’re different is that over 60% of our sales are in food: we do sandwiches, panini, jacket potatoes, soups, cakes — so we have a wide range of food which is not necessarily the norm in coffee shops.”
