New coffee shop at Mansfield's Portland College awarded five star hygiene rating
The brand new coffee shop at Portland College in Mansfield received a glowing report and a five star food hygiene rating following its first environmental health inspection.
The Coffee Shop opened earlier this year as part of the Newstart Theatre and Sports Hall development on campus and has already become a busy social hub for communities, learners and staff.
Mark Dale, principal and CEO said: “Thanks to support from our customers and expert staff, our new Coffee Shop provides an industry standard, real-life working environment for our young people to develop crucial employability skills to help prepare them for fulfilling futures.
“We’re very proud of the fantastic standards, service and menu that our learners and staff provide and the five star rating demonstrates what a great job they have done in launching and growing this new business.
