Family-friendly Altrincham café Rocket & Orange closes down

By David Prior at

Family-friendly Altrincham café Rocket & Orange has closed down with the loss of 10 jobs.

Opened in October 2016 by local couple Jenni and Karim Moolla, the business was located on Borough Road next to Stamford Park.

It offered specialty coffee and locally sourced food and was popular with families thanks to its large creative play area.

Staff were made redundant on Monday and Manchester-based administrators CG Recovery have been appointed to try and sell the business, potentially as a going concern.

A spokesperson for CG Recovery told us there had already been some interest in taking over the business, and that they would welcome any further approaches.

Interested parties are asked to ring CG Recovery on 0161 358 0210.
