This new series will feature four episodes each looking at different business' that have flourished during the economic downturn of recent years, with this first episode giving behind the scenes access to some well known coffee shop brands. It will reveal how coffee-shop franchises became big business in the UK and looks at the ways in which the different outlets battle for custom. There will be interviews with big shot bosses from both Costa and Starbucks, the latter which has pretty much become akin to McDonalds in terms of successful franchises. A lot to be said for just your run-of-the-mill family owned cafe though 'ey?
