By Anita Jaynes on 28 March, 2023

Chippenham’s Business Cyber Centre (BCC) is now home to Franco’s Deli and Café.

The independent business housed within the BCC launched on Tuesday 14th March and is open to anyone looking for a space to meet and enjoy good coffee and a bite to eat.

Set up by Francis Harvey, known as ‘Fran’ the café serves refreshments and hearty homemade dishes including sausage rolls, bacon turnovers, vegetarian options and sweet pastries. Everything is baked in-house, as well as freshly made sandwiches, pasta dishes and salad pots.  

Fran said, “I want to encourage people to take time out of their busy schedules to meet colleagues and customers whilst enjoying good food and great beverages.”

Prior to taking the plunge and setting up his own business, Fran was the general manager of a farm shop for several years and trained as a chef and barista. Following a health scare Fran was motivated to seize the opportunity having always dreamt of owning his own café. 

The BCC is located on Greenways Business Park in Chippenham and the café is serving businesses based on the park, as well as individuals looking for a space to meet close to the M4 with free parking. 

Since opening its doors, Franco’s Deli and Café has received rave reviews and currently boasts a 5-star Google rating. 

Kate Westbrook, Head of Commercial at Thrings recently met James Eades, Managing Director of Systemagic at the venue to talk all things tech ahead of The Business Exchange’s tech awards, The Techies. Kate shared on LinkedIn, “I had the most glorious rhubarb and custard blondie and was sorely tempted by the sausage rolls. Highly recommend! Friendly, helpful staff and a very nice venue for a catch up.”

Franco’s Deli and Café at the BCC is open Monday-Friday 8am-3pm.
