SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DOCASA, Inc. (OTC QB: DCSA), through its award winning subsidiary, Department of Coffee and Social Affairs Limited, based in the United Kingdom ("UK"), has announced the opening of its newest coffee shop in Bristol, UK, as part of its continuing national expansion plan.
The launch of the Bristol outlet brings the total number of the Company's coffee shops in UK to 13 operating, 3 under construction, and 6 in advanced negotiations, totalling 22 sites – which would indicate expansion of greater than 100% in a one year period, with all of the shops in prime locations or destination sites, attracting increasing foot traffic. "We are tapping into the ever-growing demand in the UK for quality, specialty coffee, and our national roll-out plans are proceeding as expected," said DOCASA Chairman, Stefan Allesch-Taylor.
Bristol is one of the most affluent places to live in the UK due to its high employment rate, wealth and salary levels. Bristol has a growing and changing population rapidly approaching 500,000 people as well as being home to Bristol University, which has over 22,000 students and faculty members.
Department of Coffee and Social Affairs' Bristol coffee shop, which provides both indoor and outdoor seating, is located in the destination Cabot Circus Shopping Centre, situated amongst major national and international branded outlets.
DOCASA's President & CEO, Ashley Lopez, commented, "Bristol is a city on the rise, welcoming more and more people, and it consistently performs highly on the intake of tourists and commuters from other parts of the UK, making it an ideal location for our newest Department of Coffee and Social Affairs coffee shop."
