Founded in June 2001, TPP has been growing steadily year on year. Andrew Bignell started the original sandwich shop with just one part time member of staff working with him. The business has grown even further since then and now employs 18 staff.
TPP offers a freshly made take away service. There is a wide selection of products on offer from sandwiches and baguettes to hot jacket potatoes and savoury pasties. In addition, there is a selection of home made sweet treats on offer too.
As TPP began to grow, Andrew noticed a demand in the outside catering sector, and decided to expand this section of the business by offering menu options for business lunches, special occasions, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, christenings, funerals and more. This is more popular now than ever and still growing.
In January 2014, TPP went through another key development area in its continuing growth. The business expanded into the shop next door and opened the "Three Pots Cafe", which gave it a much needed space and stock room as well as an area for customers to have the option to sit in and have their food with a hot drink.
The cafe was now beginning to sell speciality coffees and teas to complement their drinks menu and invested in an Italian coffee machine that would enable them to achieve the same quality with their drinks that they were with their food. Andrew said "Customers are loving it, they can now just sit in the new cafe, and relax with a nice coffee! This is something we couldn't offer before".
Andrew describes the business as a "customer focussed" business, which always endeavours to deliver what the customer wants, wether this is just a bacon sandwich or a full buffet with all the trimmings!
