A bit about us

Sim Trava was formed in 2005 by Simon and Tracy Vardy from the basement of their Altrincham home, and their first store opened that same year on October 17th in Northwich, Cheshire.  The original plan was to open 5 stores in 5 years, however that milestone was achieved much sooner and by 2010 we had 10 Costa Coffee stores in and around the Cheshire/Manchester area.

Fast forward to 2021 when we celebrated our 40th new store opening in Fallowfield, Manchester.  Following this Sim Trava was honoured to be selected to be the first franchises to purchase existing stores from equity.  We acquired 17 stores, located across the Preston, Blackpool, and Southport region, bringing the Sim Trava estate to 57 stores.
