THIRTY new jobs will be created when a new cafe opens in a former bank.

Boston Tea Party (BTP), an independent small cafe chain, have announced that it will be opening its newest venue in Montague Place, Worthing, on August 5.

The new cafe will be inside a Victorian building that was previously a bank and will be able to seat 150 people inside and out.

The Bristol-based business is recruiting to find people who will be able to fill management roles as well as the front of house jobs such as hosts and hostesses, chef and barista positions. The cafe will be serving a range of ethically sourced food and drink.

The cafe will include its award-winning breakfasts served all day, lunches and homemade cakes alongside speciality coffees, loose-leaf teas, and homemade smoothies and juices.

The business also tries to benefit the environment as well as its local community.

Chief executive and co-owner Sam Roberts said: "We put making things better at the centre of everything we do. We're excited to bring a bit of this magic to Worthing in time for summer.

"We want every BTP to be a friendly and welcoming space for the whole community to enjoy.

"Whether you bring the family for brunch or pop in to grab a takeaway coffee, so bring your reusable cup, and you will leave knowing you've done a little bit of good too."

BTP have taken steps to reduce their impact on the planet. In 2018 single-use coffee cups were banned in their cafes. It is estimated that the decision has stopped 270,000 cups from ending up in a landfill.

In 2019, BTP was named "Britain's Most Ethical Coffee Shop" by Ethical Consumer, which researched and rated more than 40,000 brands and products to help consumers make ethical choices.
