I am supporting small businesses by giving them a shout out on my blog. Next up is business owner Gemma Williams talking about CIGNO Coffee Shop.

Hi Gemma, welcome to the Silver Hedgehog blog, tell us all about CIGNO

We started trading 19 June 2019 as a family run coffee shop.  Myself and my Husband Matt live in Burntwood and wanted to do something for the local community.

CIGNO is is a great location, what made you decide to open a coffee shop?

My husband and I met when both worked in the hospitality industry as students and loved our jobs, but decided to pursue other careers due to low prospects and low wage in the hospitality industry. I joined the army and Matt joined a company doing international removals travelling around Europe! Matt had a health scare and we had twins and kind of thought life is too short, we should try and do what we enjoy

What do you offer?

We offer amazing coffee that people must come and try! As CIGNO is our own business we have taken care to create relaxing surroundings.   To complement our coffee offer we serve breakfast, lunch and also have a children’s menu.  We are also keen to look after those with dietary requirements so we have gluten free and vegan options. We really care about what we do and want you to have the best time and the best food!

CIGNO is an interesting name, what made you chose it for your new Coffee Shop?

That’s a great question! The coffee we serve is a darker roast, which is an Italian style, and we are located at ‘Swan Island’ in Burntwood.  CIGNO is Italian for ‘Swan’ it perfectly shows our Italian inspiration and our location.
