DAVID Cooper? Meet David Cooper...
Two businessmen who share the same name hope to share the benefits after signing a supply agreement.
Bradley-based Cooper’s Coffee, led by managing director David Cooper, has been appointed to supply its products to Liverpool coffee shop Coopers of Freshfields, which is owned by another David Cooper.
The coffee shop owner came across Cooper’s Coffee when he was conducting some online research for his logo.
“Cooper's appeared in Google and as I was looking to attract the discerning customer, their brand and approach to coffee was a perfect match,” he said.
“Once I'd spoken to their new business manager, I was convinced Cooper's had the right attitude as well as the right products. All the staff I have spoken to have been a pleasure to deal with. And you can imagine the fun I have when I ring up and say ‘Hi, it's David Cooper’!”
Coopers of Freshfields has signed up to an array of Fair Trade teas, coffees, hot chocolate, wafers and syrups from Cooper’s Coffee.
A new espresso machine from premium Italian brand Dalla Corte and a grinder will also be installed.
Speaking about signing up his namesake, David Cooper, of Cooper’s Coffee said: “I’ve never met anyone with my name before and it’s even more of an amazing coincidence that we both work in the coffee sector.
“I don’t blame David for taking advantage of the Cooper’s name. It’s great that we fit with his needs for quality and service and he gets to use the connectivity of our branding. It’s a win-win situation.”
