It was the year 1995 when Michael and Louisa Smith together with Lee Porter decided to set up Venus. They are very environment friendly and they would like to make sure that they will open up a beach café and shop to the public that encompasses that. They believe that they will be able to bring high street professionalism into the beach setting that a lot of people also love. At that point, there was not enough of this available so they have continued with opening Venus at Blackpool Sands, near Darmouth on the South Devon Coast. It was just two years later when they decided to open another Venus Beach Café & Shop at East Portlemouth. Four years after the first Beach Café & Shop was opened, a third store was yet again formed at Bigbury on sea. Do remember that while it was concern for the environment that started the stores, it was only in the third store when all of the environmental and operational efficiency were given special attention. In the year 2002, quality clothing were also sold and it has evolved into selling things that people would want at the beach.
It has already been mentioned that being environment friendly is one of the things that this company is proud of. It understands that the world has changed considerably over the past years and it is not as clean as it used to be. Opening beach cafés and shops that cater to other environment friendly people aims to help people understand the need to pay attention to the environment. Another one of the store values that is quite apparent is that it aims to give the things that people need from clothes to toys that can be used when playing in the sand and even inflatable, it can be a one stop shop for families. It also aims to bring comfortable dining to its customers
What makes Venus unique?
The strong commitment of Venus to the environment, the local community and to the social community makes it unique from all the other beach and cafés that offered their services in the past. It also shows that it is committed to be strong and to give what their customers need at all times and this alone makes it different from all the other companies with money as their usual main goal. With Venus, you can be sure that you will get the best service possible.
