Brains, the Cardiff-based brewer and pub operator, is continuing the rollout of its Coffee#1 concept, with the launch of two new sites in Wales. The group, which acquired the then 15-strong chain last October, has since added its first site in Devon in Exeter, and this week added its fourth site in Cardiff in the city’s Pontcanna area. The company will add a further site in Cardiff next month, which will be a glass-fronted unit near Queen Street Railway station. The acquisition of Coffee#1, which has outlets spread throughout South Wales and the south west of England, was seen a major departure for brewer and pub operator.
