    There is nothing wrong with Costa. It may be a chain brand but a lot are franchises which are owned by people local to the area.

    I would rather a Costa than what some parks end up having - basically just a water boiler and a fridge.

    I used know/work with the bloke that ran the old cafe in the park - Keith, lovely man, but he used to buy the cheapest of the cheap. Tea, coffee, iced lollies etc. The iced lollies he would pass off as Walls, woman at work confronted him one day about ti, his answer was, if you're daft enough to get your stuff off me, then that's your fault, not mine.

    Never said there was anything wrong with Costa. What we don't need in Stafford is replication, and with there being 5 of them in the area as it is, we don't need another imo.

    People in general, despite what some may say, like replication. How else would chains survive? But yes, different can be good.

    Hear hear. I’ve tried numerous local takeaways and prefer the lesser known chains for instance. Caprino’s is good, Big Bite is bloody awful, for example.
