Hunt for Britain’s Best Cafe back for 2017

Following SIG Roofing’s national competition to find Britain’s Best Cafe last year, the 2017 competition is now under way with continued support from Building Products Magazine.

2016 really showed that cafe customers value their regular stop-off for a great British breakfast, a tasty lunch or simply a strong cup of “builders’ tea”. With support from SIG Roofing’s 120 branches nationwide, who will be encouraging their own customers to vote and support their favourite local cafe, this year’s cafes will be vying to win a glorious trip to Cuba – to sample the stunning sun, sea and local delicacies.

In November, once all the votes have been counted, Andrew Wakelin, SIG Roofing managing director, will present 14 regional winners and the lucky national title holder with their awards at a ceremony in London.

Commenting on the competition, he said: “With a network of local branches from Inverness to Plymouth, we have long-standing and close relationships with contractors right across the country.

“Knowing them and their daily routine inspired the idea of supporting and promoting the cafes that help them through the working day. These are businesses which, like us, understand the value of great product along with high service standards.”

Marketing Manager Janine Brady was involved with every aspect of the 2016 competition and says that votes from the cafes and SIG Roofing customers, together with local community members, can look forward to another exciting competition this year.

She said: “We think our customers and the contractors who use the local cafes every day are ideal to judge which cafe is Britain’s best. They work hard, start early and are always on the lookout for a cafe with great food, cheerful and friendly staff. But we want everyone to join in the fun and that’s why we open up the voting to the local community. ”
