The Feature-Length Coffee House and Diner

A young entrepreneur is hoping a fundraising campaign will enable her to bring a unique coffee house and diner to Preston.

Jessica Carol intends to establish a movie themed restaurant, The Feature Length, in the city and has began a Kickstarter campaign to help set it up.

She hopes to raise a minimum of £20,000 in order to set up the business and is pledging for 20,000 people to donate £1 to reach her target.

The restaurant will be styled as a sophisticated and family-friendly establishment with a warm environment, ambient decor, and 100 per cent fresh home-cooked food.

She believes the movie-themed store is something people will really want, with sporadic movie screenings as a small intimate community cinema as well as coffee house and eatery.

Young Entrepreneur Jessica Carol

Jessica Carol said: “We’re at a crucial stage in the funding department, which is why we have set up a Kickstarter campaign.

“Nothing is set in stone as of yet. I have interest in more than one commercial property, particularly a couple in Friargate which would be our ideal location.

“I will live, sleep and breathe the business and offer up my services to a number of other businesses because I believe starting out, that businesses should support each other.”
