New World’s new cafe

by Callum McDonald

Roy and Lynne Bridgman marked 18 years at New World in Rolleston last week and celebrated with the opening of the newly refurbished New World Dragonfly Cafe as an integral part of their business.

“We opened the store on December 5 2000, and for the last three months we have had half of our entranceway blocked off to combine the cafe into the store, which made it really inconvenient for our customers, but we are sure they will love the completed project, it came up beautifully,” says Roy.

“Our daughters, Amber and Courtney, have owned the cafe next door for 13 years and we purchased it off them — combining it with the supermarket. We use Supreme coffee roasters, and we have people come from all around the district because we ensure we have well trained and passionate baristas lead by Jules, the cafe manager. This is a full sit down cafe with beautiful cabinet food available that is mostly made fresh on site and a feature handcrafted artwork by Andrew Steel, which contains some classic Kiwiana images.

“We are excited for the future of New World Dragonfly Cafe and our customers enjoying what we have to offer. We also take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers for your support, and we wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas.”
