A popular organic café in Sheffield city centre is closing its doors after almost a decade.

PJ Taste is shutting its premises on Glossop Road tomorrow (Friday) in order to expand the business’ delivery and event catering service.

The firm was launched in 2006, aiming to serve seasonally-inspired food using locally sourced ingredients.

The news was announced this week in a statement on behalf of staff, including founders Peter Moulam and John Fitzpatrick.

Plans include developing an 80-seat venue on Staniforth Road in Attercliffe.

In the meantime customers can buy PJ Taste meals from the Technology Centre Café in Catcliffe.

“We are relocating our business to new premises,” the statement said.

“We’re sure that great things are to come following our next steps. Our delivery and event catering is continuously growing and we have recently invested in a large production kitchen.

“With these developments in mind, we have decided to make Friday our last day of opening our Glossop Road shop. It’s been a fantastic nine years.”

Further investment in green technologies is also planned, as well as increasing the amount of crops PJ Taste grows in Sheffield.
