Aroma Cafe enjoy the perks of switching through Make It Cheaper.

After 13 years of love and labour, the Mainwarings have established the Aroma Coffee Shop in Bridgend as one of the most sought-after luncheon spots in the area.

The family recently decided to expand the business and purchase a new cafe in Cowbridge. As we'd already helped them with their energy contracts in Bridgend, they knew they wouldn't have to look any further than Make It Cheaper to get a fair deal for their gas and electricity at their new premises.

Anne Mainwaring spoke to Heidi, one of our energy experts, who found them competitive rates on a two year fixed term contract with Npower.

She also arranged for them to get their new gas and electricity meters fitted for free at their new business premises, Aroma Cafe – making their energy costs significantly smaller.

Although the cost varies with business needs and between suppliers, each new meter that is installed at a business usually costs between £350 and £500. This means we’ve potentially saved the Mainwarings from a thousand-pound headache.

When asked about our service, Anne said:

"Opening a new business can be a very exciting, busy and stressful time. I have been a customer of Make It Cheaper over the last few years and always felt confident that I was having the best advice on saving money with my energy bills so it was a natural move to ask for their help when setting up my energy supply to my new cafe.

"Heidi completely understood how setting up new installations can be confusing if you’re not technically-minded - she was always there to give advice and the whole process was clear and smooth. I would recommend Make It Cheaper as a professional and helpful company. I will continue to use their services in the future."

We're glad to help these cafe artisans find a great deal – in fact, the Mainwarings plan to use the money that they saved on meters by purchasing new equipment for the cafe.

The deal we've served up isn't just good for the next two years, either. When the contracts are close to expiring in twenty four months’ time, we'll be getting back in touch to talk the Mainwarings through their options for renewing their gas and electricity deals for another year.
