Kirstie and and. David Nichol have taken over Zuari in Attleborough. The new cafe will be called DKs Coffe house. A former prison officer has waved goodbye to years of looking after those behind bars to fulfil a life-long dream of opening his own cafe.
The couple met during their time working at HM Prison Wayland - but Mr Nicol, 36, turned his back on days supervising inmates for the daily grind of running his own business in March. It has been a risk but it's something I was prepared for. A Christmas present prompted the father-of-four to develop a love for coffee into a full-time career. Mrs Nicol, 33, said: 'As a bit of a laugh I bought him a Tassimo machine, which he loved. Then we had to upgrade to an espresso machine - and it's snowballed from there, really.
Our family were saying they'd never do that, and we did umm and aah over it but it has always been a dream for us. Dave said he was prepared to work as a delivery driver or whatever he needed to do if it went wrong, so we went for it. Although Mr Nicol said he doesn't have experience running a business, he hopes his love of hot drinks and skills learnt in the prison service will see him through.
For the last six months, the couple have busied themselves with promotion, deing a menu and hiring staff - while looking after year-old Bronwyn, eight-year-old Rhys, two-year-old Cerys and month-old Lewis.
There's a lot to do in the early days but it has been good fun,' Mrs Nicol said. They hope to extend their current opening hours, run themed evenings and apply for an alcohol licence at the cafe, which is in the old Zuari coffee and gift shop site. The couple will officially launch the cafe on September 6, with an all-day event and a hog roast. Do you have an Attleborough story for us? Contact reporter Lauren Cope on Lauren.
