Café chain opens sixth franchise

All Fired Up Ceramics Café has opened its sixth store in Canterbury. The shop was opened by franchisee Alex Irvine, who was previously a science teacher, last Easter.

The chain of coffee shops blended with ceramics studios and retail outlets already has franchises in Ipswich, Colchester, Dulwich, Bournemouth and Lancaster.

'Canterbury is a thriving city that attracts people from all over Kent, plus many visitors from the continent,' says Alex Irvine, franchise owner of All Fired Up Ceramics Café Canterbury. 'An All Fired Up franchise offers me the opportunity to reach out to many different groups of people in the community through school visits, birthday parties, hen parties and office groups as well as to local families and tourists.'
