Company Values

Having lived locally all our lives, we aim to embody the family friendly feeling of so many Nailsworth independent shops, as we believe this is what makes our town such an attractive location in the Cotswolds. We will always provide service with a smile, and are happy to help our customers in any way we can, whether that be advising on a present for your tricky mother-in-law, or simply holding the door open when your hands are full! We want Coco to be a relaxed space, where anyone can feel free to stop for a coffee and a chat.

We value being stewards of the environment, and will always ensure that we are as green as possible. In Coco we use biodegradable cups, and straws, and paper or reusable bags – it's so easy to find eco-friendly products nowadays that it would be crazy not to.

It's also important that we are able to cater for different dietary requirements. We are keen to support our free-from customers and find as many fabulous treats for them as possible.
