A specialist tea house opened its doors to shoppers and students in Huddersfield, following the completion of its lease by leading property consultants, Bruton Knowles.
Situated on Kings Street, the Northern Tea House’s lease agreement was negotiated by Bruton Knowles associate Stuart Hastings for co-owners and partners Emma Grain and Kevin Chatham.
Based in Huddersfield town centre and close to the university, the tea house is ideal for hungry shoppers and students, who will be able to try a selection of 20 different teas, savoury lunches and delicious cakes.
Co-owner of the Northern Tea House and currently also a university lecturer, Emma Grain, said: “We spent more than 18 months looking for the ideal location for our little tea house and we were delighted when we found the property situated near the university and next to the main shopping street. Having gone to university in Huddersfield and now working as a university lecturer, the area has always been the ideal location in my opinion. I knew I wanted to start a business here and the property is perfect as it is situated right in the town centre.”
“Bruton Knowles were fantastic to work with,” Emma added. “They made sure that everything ran as smoothly as it could with great communication and efficiency throughout the agreement of the lease. We wanted it to be an industrial modern tea house with a hint of vintage and it has taken some time to get ready for its big opening. This included six weeks of renovations and 10 workmen working around the clock to make sure it is perfect. However, it all worked out brilliantly in the end as our tea house looks amazing and we were able to open to customers on time.”
Emma and Kevin have also taken on eight new staff members to help support the day to day running of the tea house.
Stuart Hastings, of Bruton Knowles, added: “The tea house is in a prime location in Huddersfield town centre that will serve both shoppers and students in the local community, and will be a brilliant asset, providing jobs in the community. We are more than pleased to have worked with Emma and Kevin in leasing the property and helping them start their new exciting venture. We would like to wish them the best of luck in their new premises.”
