Exciting new opportunities are available at Centenary Lounge! So come on-board and join us on our one-of-a-kind journey back to the golden age of travel with our fantastic franchising opportunity.

Centenary Lounge is an affordable and accessible luxury brand, celebrating a glamorous period of the railway cafes, by bringing people together over food and drink. Centenary Lounge, inspired by the 1930’s Art Deco railway cafes is the perfect addition to any vibrant, up and coming, termini, neighbourhood or city location. Providing an elegant place to enjoy either a casual coffee and croissant, a fabulous brunch or a stylish afternoon tea and cocktails.

All our venues are complimented with a dynamic online presence which offers multiple revenue streams for delivery and in-store collection. We also offer gift experiences and vouchers to subscriptions and hampers, including our very own range of replica GWR-branded giftware suitably named Recreations.

Birmingham and Worcester venues have been described as charming and relaxing along with the perfect setting to enjoy either a meal or a break. Centenary Lounge has a host of food and drinks ranging from breakfast through to lunch, to afternoon tea and pre-dinner cocktails.

We believe in using innovating and contemporary thinking to create an in-depth analysis of our locations. Being able to advise on all the above and provide bespoke solutions is what we aspire to do when we offer our franchisees options such as a hybrid version or even any other relevant arrangement.

We have three concepts available:

The First-Class Lounge

This is the ‘High Street’ version with a more fulfilled menu which is both licensed and contains a generous amount of seating with table service. We have taken the technical aspect of cooking out of the process, so this means that a fully trained chef is not necessary. However, some of the dishes offered at the location would need someone who is capable of producing the high-quality food by following the detailed recipes provided for each dish.

Express Lounge

This concept is still relatively large or medium depending on the location. The real difference is the menu, as it is more compact and appeals to customers who are ‘on the move’ or are looking for a quick bite to eat and drink. One thing to note is that there is also seating available on these premises and has a more café like feel. We feel that this would utilise its full potential within Railway Stations, Airports, Coach Stations or even Ports, but is perfect for smaller towns or cities or as a neighbourhood store. The versatility of this concept is apparent and very appealing.

Station Kiosk

The third and final concept is a standalone store that would work perfectly within stations, airports or even shopping centre as this mainly focuses on the takeaway aspect.

Our franchising opportunities will allow you to get on the right track for an exciting, lucrative journey.

We have a great team with insightful industry expertise to push you towards the right direction to succeed as a franchisee. Our team include our franchise director, operations and system manager, a thought leadership professional helping make powerful connections in the business industry, brand ambassador, finance director and more.

Do you feel ready to add a new platform to your personal and professional development and to be part of something amazing? You can register your interest, without any obligation, by getting in touch with the Managing Director, Aasia Baig on 07719 969124 or email
