The Hollow Cafe in Verwood centre is closing down but plans are already in place to replace it with a local branch of Café Aroma.
Café Aroma has outlets in Wimborne, Ringwood and Bournemouth and is a family-run business hoping to open around the beginning of October.
Laura and Jamie from the Hollow Cafe say they are sad to be saying farewell to Verwood, and thanked all their customers over the last four years.
In a post on social media, they said: “Jamie and I would like to let our fabulous community and all of our wonderful customers know that, with a heavy heart, later this summer we will be handing over the reins to Café Aroma.
“Although we are sad to be saying farewell to our lovely little cafe that we’ve cherished for the past four years, we will be taking so many fantastic friendships and great memories with us; we cannot thank you ALL enough!
“Café Aroma is an independently run business and we hope Verwood will embrace the new owners just as enthusiastically as you did us. With all our love and gratitude, Laura & Jamie.”
Meanwhile, Café Aroma’s new Facebook page has news of what’s to come:
