Following the success of SIG Roofing’s national competition to find Britain’s Best Café in 2016, the 2017 campaign is now underway.

Announced with the help of last year’s winners, Gail and Chris Murray from the Super Sausage Cafe in Potterspury, near Milton Keynes, the competition will once again inspire hundreds of the nation’s cafes to canvas votes from their local customers and supporters.

2016 showed that cafe customers value their regular stop-off for a great British breakfast, a tasty lunch or simply a strong cup of builders’ tea. With support from SIG Roofing’s 120 branches nationwide, who will be encouraging their own customers to vote and support their favourite local cafe, this year’s cafes will be vying to win a glorious trip to Cuba – to sample the sun, sea and local delicacies.

In November, Andrew Wakelin, SIG Roofing managing director, will present the lucky national winner and 14 regional winners with their awards at a ceremony in London.

Mr Wakelin said: “With a network of local branches covering the length of the UK, from Inverness to Plymouth, we have longstanding and close relationships with contractors right across the country.

“Knowing them and their daily routine inspired the idea of supporting and promoting the cafes that help them through the working day. These are businesses which, like us, understand the value of great product along with high service standards.”
