Loungers, the West Country based restaurant/café/bar group is opening a brand new site in Frome on Wednesday 1st April 2015. Cordero Lounge will open in the Westway Shopping Centre creating 25 jobs for local people.
To celebrate the opening and to emphasise Cordero Lounge’s family-friendly credentials, Loungers will donate 50p from every burger and 10p from every coffee sold in the first month of trading to the RUH’s Forever Friends appeal. Money raised will be put towards the Children’s department.
Corporate Officer for The Forever Friends Appeal, Jo Common, comments: “We are so pleased to have been chosen as the beneficiary charity for Cordero Lounge’s first month of trading. Every year, tens of thousands of local children receive care and treatment at the Royal United Hospital. Charitable support helps make life better for these children, and their families, by funding additional care, facilities and equipment. Thanks to our generous supporters, like Cordero Lounge, we are able to make life better for thousands of local children and families who are cared for in the RUH each year.”
Loungers has invested £550K transforming the site into a retro home from home, where dramatic art work will sit next to oversized vintage sofas and statement light fittings, in the eclectic style much loved by Lounge aficionados.
Graham Blackwell, operations manager, Loungers, said: “Frome is the perfect location for our Lounge concept. There’s already a thriving and vibrant community and we’re really looking forward to playing our part in the foodie scene here. Residents will be served by the very best – our new team is passionate about hospitality. Our excellent pre-opening and ‘on the job’ training programme ensures our staff will be at the top of their game. Training includes expert guidance from one of Europe’s most acclaimed baristas.”
Cordero Lounge will cater for all tastes throughout the day. Whether you’re looking for the best coffee in town, a business lunch with colleagues or a lazy all-day brunch, Cordero Lounge is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The menu features everything from their famous authentic tapas and Hero Burger to Tin Pan Louie’s beef chilli and the best mac and cheese you’ve ever tasted… or there’s the ever changing specials board. Little people are well catered for with their very own kids’ menu.
