Paddy & Scott’s is set to take over the entire food and drink operations at the University of Suffolk.

The Suffolk coffeehouse will offer its world-renowned drinks and a range of food across four outlets at the campus in Ipswich's Waterfront

"This is a hugely exciting project for us," said Jon Reed, brand director at Paddy & Scott's.

Throughout August the company will be consulting with students to find out what they want on offer.

And the operation is expected to be fully rolled out by early September

Paddy & Scott's also revealed future plans to create a barista training centre on site and extend barista training to students of the university.

Mr Reed added: "We want to create a barista training centre to teach the next generation about coffee, growing and roasting."

"Our aim is to launch a programme that gives students a stepping stone into the industry, but also highlight how much hard work and love goes into each and every cup of coffee."
