MIDDLESBROUGH’S first artisan espresso and patisserie restaurant is to stage a special event to promote its mouthwatering range of desserts to local students.
Recent surveys have shown that some Teesside students did not know about all of the offers and amenities De Meló has for them.
In light of this, the cafe will be holding an event in the Middlesbrough Tower building of Teesside University.
De Meló’s café is located on the Linthorpe Road, only a short distance from the university.
People who stop by can enter into a draw and be in with the chance of winning some of De Meló’s tasty treats.
In addition, they can also pick up a free cookie and a voucher for a discounted coffee at the store.
The event is on Tuesday 1st December from 1 – 3pm and all students are invited to come along.
Teesside graduate Imran Ayoub, store manager, said that students are a very important part of De Meló’s growth.
“Students probably make up the majority of our customers and this is how I intended it to be.
“Everything in the store is designed with Teesside university students in mind with features such as Wi-Fi and phone charging ports to discounts which is 10% for students.
“We are having this event at Teesside university to make students aware of what we have to offer them,” he said.
