The Honesty Group is looking to boost its number of coffee shops to 10, as it expands in the Berkshire area.

The group, which currently comprises eight coffee shops, the Honest Bakery and Kitchen, The Crown and Garter restaurant with rooms, and a cookery school, has lined up two new openings in the next year.

The group is also looking to expand its wholesale artisan bakery business across the South West of England.

Romilla Arber, founder of The Honesty Group said: “Our business all started with bread and wanting to take a different approach to food and how it gets to the consumer.”

This expansion said it would enable the company to spread its ‘do good, feel good’ ethos into more independent coffee shops, restaurants, and cafés across the UK.
