Take a fresh look at Fleetwood Market Cafe

Colin HindWhat’s on the menu these days as Fleetwood Market Cafe opens its doors for business?

Meet new cafe operator Colin Hind. With almost 30 years in the food industry, Colin has acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience which he will now bring to his most recent business venture, Fleetwood Market Cafe. Colin says; “It’s quite simply named Fleetwood Market Cafe – as that’s exactly what it is!”

Fleetwood resident Colin added: “I have been working in the family-run business for 27 years, 17 of them I have been owner of Capricorn Cafe in the seaside town. I’ve worked in the food industry one way or another since leaving school. Starting my career at the North Euston Hotel in Fleetwood as a kitchen porter I then moved onto a supervisory role within a major supermarket. It was at this time that the opportunity arose to buy Capricorn Cafe.

Colin, Julie and Mayor of WyreWhen I found out the market cafe was up for lease I couldn’t let the chance go by. I know the industry very well; I enjoy working with the public and meeting people and I am now keen to expand my career in a busier environment and I can’t wait to become a part of the Fleetwood Market family. We offer a varied menu of breakfasts, toasties, salads and main meals with vegetarian options also provided. Customers can also enjoy a varied selection of fresh cream cakes too. Our first week of trading has exceeded my expectations – we’ve been rushed off our feet and long may it continue.”
