Bakers + Baristas prepare to open flagship café in Leeds

first_imgSource: Bakers + BaristasBakers + Baristas is gearing up to unveil its newest flagship café in Leeds.The chain, which has more than 63 outlets across the UK and Ireland, will open the store on 2 December in the White Rose Shopping Centre. The business said the expansion was possible following the acquisition of the Love Koffee brand in 2018 and the transitioning of the 11-strong estate into the Bakers + Baristas brand last year, which had seen a ‘significant uplift in sales and a growing following for the brand’s unique offering’.Changes made under lockdown across the estate, such as the launch of a click and collect service, working with delivery partners such as Deliveroo and Just Eat for home delivery and also the launch of the brand’s app to view the menu and order and pay at the table had also helped the company said.The café will serve a seasonally changing menu alongside their bespoke small-batch coffee blend and a year-round drinks menu. Its festive offer includes a pigs in blanket panini, mince pies, yule log slices and Mr Frosty and Rockin Reindeer muffins, as well as Christmas drinks such as a spiced orange mocha and gingerbread latte.Bakers + Baristas cafes also serve scones, pastries, sliced cakes, cookies and no less than 12 different types of muffins including classic, deluxe, chocolate, gluten-free and skinny muffins.“It may come as a surprise to some to hear that we are opening a new café when the sector is struggling under lockdown,” said James Fleming, group CEO at Bakers + Baristas.“However, we feel optimistic that normality will return soon and confident that our proposition is exciting to customers. Thus, we remain keen to expand to new territories when the time is right.”Bakers + Baristas was originally founded in 1981 in Queensland, Australia.last_img read more

first_imgMaritzburg United are still to conclude the deal of Yakubu Mohammed despite the Ghana striker appearing to have already settled in at the club.United have also invited Nigerian forward Dele Olorundane for an assessment.Mohammed was initially linked with a move to Orlando Pirates but that deal fell through due to fitness issues after coach Roger de Sa told KickOff.com that he only lasted just 30 minutes in his first training session with Bucs.He has now found himself chasing a contract at Maritzburg while Olorundane – currently playing for Sunshine Stars – is also due for a trial within the next couple of days.Farook Kadodia, the Maritzburg boss, says they are still yet to complete the signing of Mohammed and are also expecting Olorundane next week.“Not yet,” says Kadodia when asked about if Mohammed has signed. “He is still training and we will see how things go this weekend,” he says.Mohammed has been playing his football at Ashanti Gold where he still has a contract.Though Kadodia says they are yet to complete the signing of the Ghana forward word from the club’s training ground is that Mohammed has looked the part in being the club’s number 9 going into the new season.last_img read more

Half-time: QPR 0 Reading 1

first_imgKaspars Gorkss’ goal against his former club left QPR staring at the prospect of another defeat.Gorkss, who also scored in Rangers’ recent League Cup loss against Reading, pounced after the home side failed to deal with Nick Shorey’s right-wing corner.Sean Morrison headed against the bar and Gorkss’ left-footed follow-up found its way through the hands of keeper Julio Cesar and past Esteban Granero on the line.Rangers, bottom of the table and without a league win this season, were on the back foot for much of the opening 45 minutes.Djibril Cisse, restored to the R’s starting line-up, sent a long-range effort over the bar before Junior Hoilett saw an effort go wide.But Reading remained a threat, especially at set-pieces, with Morrison dominant in the air.And they stayed in front after a brilliant save by keeper Alex McCarthy, who tipped Granero’s free-kick onto the bar before Jose Bosingwa volleyed over from the rebound.QPR (4-4-2): Cesar, Bosingwa, Ferdinand, Nelsen, Traore; Hoilett, Granero, Diakite, Taarabt; Hoilett, Mackie. Subs: Green, Derry, Hill, Wright-Phillips, Onouha, Zamora, Faurlin. 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Chelsea v Leicester: five key battles

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesChelsea face defending champions Leicester City at Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s early kick-off. Here are five potential battles we think might be all-important to deciding the result.John Terry v Jamie VardyThe Chelsea captain is fit again and, although boss Antonio Conte remained tight-lipped on whether he would start, there is no doubting the importance of Terry to the Blues’ defence. With him, they won three and drew one of their first four games. Without him, they lost twice and conceded five goals in three matches. Vardy’s pace, though, will be an examination for the skipper.N’Golo Kante v Danny DrinkwaterHaving been an unused substitute in the EFL Cup tie between the sides last month, Kante will on Saturday face his former Leicester team-mates for the first time since his £30m summer move. The Frenchman occupies a slightly different role at Chelsea, and his tackling stats are poorer as a result, but he will no doubt enjoy his tussle with Drinkwater, fit again after the groin niggle that saw him pull out of the England squad.Diego Costa v Robert HuthReferee Andre Marriner will be keeping a close eye on these two, particularly given ex-Chelsea defender Huth’s propensity for shirt grabbing. Costa will need to keep his cool in the face of any provocation as he looks to add to his six goals in seven league games this term.Marcos Alonso v Riyad MahrezWhether Conte sticks with three centre backs, or reverts to a back four, Alonso is likely to keep his place following a solid first Premier League start at Hull last time out. And whether he is a wing-back or a more traditional full-back, the Spaniard will face a challenge against Mahrez, despite the fact the Leicester man is yet to repeat the performances of last season.Eden Hazard v Danny SimpsonGoals against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Gibraltar while playing for Belgium will have given Hazard a confidence boos following a mixed display at Hull and, prior to that, an anonymous performance at Arsenal. He will look to get the better of former QPR man Simpson, who was excellent as the Foxes shut out Southampton in their last game.Click here for the latest Chelsea transfer gossip See also:The stats that show how Kante’s game has changed at ChelseaTerry passed fit for Leicester gameConte laughs off rumours he faced the sackConte backs Batshuayi amid speculation over striker’s futurePreview: Chelsea aim to pick up where they left off against LeicesterChelsea v Leicester line-ups: Terry decision, Blues trio injured, Foxes rotate Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Joe Paterno Statue Could Come Down In Next 72

Joe Paterno Statue — a statue of legendary coach Joe Paterno in front of Penn State’s Beaver Stadium — may be the next casualty in the nasty ongoing fallout of the child sex abuse scandal.The decision whether to remove or move Joe Paterno statue is expected to be made by the school president Rodney Erickson within the next three days, a source familiar with Erickson’s plans told ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”Much of the consternation on what to do about the statue stems from how the NCAA will perceive the actions. The school is fearful of the governing body leveling the “death penalty” on the football program.Trustees said on the show that the board had a spirited discussion about the statue in a conference call Thursday night — the same call in which the resignation of former board chairman Steve Garban was discussed. But the decision is not theirs, they said.Various tweets Friday morning said the board had voted and/or made a decision about the statue and that it would be removed this weekend. If the board had taken a vote during the call, it would have violated state law, which prohibits votes from being taken outside of declared board meetings.The trustees who spoke Friday morning said board members did discuss possibilities for the statue, including moving it from the stadium area, perhaps to the library on campus that bears the Paterno name or the Penn State All Sports Museum near the stadium. Board spokesman David LaTorre declined to comment Friday morning.The trustees have been concerned this week that the NCAA will hand down an extreme punishment, possibly the death penalty for its football program for its “loss of institutional control” during the Sandusky years. Dealing with the statue issue, and the resignation of Garban, has been needed to show the public the board was serious about “moving forward,” one trustee said.“It’s a highly sensitive decision,” another trustee said Friday. “The decision is a symbolic one. We have to be very careful about what kind of message we send.” read more
