A group of award winning Brighouse business owners have joined forces to open a brand new coffee shop providing the ideal place for business lunches and meetings.

Located at the town’s new Thornhill Brigg Mills office development, Big Shots Coffee Co was officially opened by Calder Valley MP Craig Whittaker.

The launch event saw more than 200 business people, clients and local councillors visit the coffee shop which is kitted out with meeting essentials including phone chargers, spare stationary and free Wi-Fi.

Big Shots is the brainchild of a collective of local businesses which include Sleigh & Story Accountants, Faith PR, Yorkshire Payments, Henderson Property and Hebden Bridge based painting pottery cafe Flying Saucers. Between them, the businesses have scooped nine Brighouse Echo Business Awards.

Faith PR director and Big Shots partner Carl Hopkins said: “Opening Big Shots has allowed us to create two new jobs for people from the local area, and we also plan to recruit more staff when the business is up and running. We believe it will become a real hub of activity and an asset to the business community in Brighouse.”
