New Blackburn License to Grill cafe opens to customers

A new cafe serving breakfast and lunch welcomes customers after a complete renovation of a former butty shop.

License to Grill opened its doors on August 8 to customers, serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week.

Owner Jason Jeal said he ripped out the interior of Kayleigh’s former Baps on Hereford Road, Blackburn, before spending thousands on a new look.

He said: “I came here, people said they liked the food, they liked the decor and it was a nice place to come.

“We’ve had a complete renovation here, a whole new kitchen, a whole new front area. It’s such a big difference.

“People can sit down and have breakfast or lunch. We also have a delivery service and a take-out service, in addition we have tables outside.

He said that since they opened, customers have commented on the cafe’s food and new look.

Jason works the shop himself and has two part-time employees, hoping to hire more workers as the business grows.

License to Grill isn’t Jason’s first venture into the cafe business. he previously owned the Daisyfield Café Bar in the business center of Appleby Street. Before that, he ran Sandwich Bar on King Street.

The cafe serves breakfast including full English, bacon baps, spam baps and more. They also serve salad and sandwiches for lunch.
