Insomnia wins Retail Excellence Café & Restaurant of the Year for the second year in a row!

Insomnia Thurles has been named as Café & Restaurant of the Year at the AIB Merchant Services Retail Excellence Awards 2022. This represents the second year in a row that Insomnia has won the Café & Restaurant of the Year category with Insomnia Shackleton picking up the accolade last year.

The awards were established in 1997 to promote best practice and encourage the highest standards in the Irish Retail Industry. They are now the largest and most prestigious of their kind in Ireland.

Hundreds of Irish Retailers from all corners of the country entered this competition, but Insomnia Thurles was one of 30 businesses that made it through to the final stages of this year’s Retail Excellence Awards. The Top30 stores were rigorously tested with a financial audit and an onsite visit from Retail Excellence and Echochamber with Insomnia Thurles chosen as Café & Restaurant of the Year.

Harry O Kelly CEO of Insomnia said: “We are absolutely thrilled that our Thurles café has been named as Café & Restaurant of the Year. I am extremely proud ­­of Bozena and her team, this acknowledgment is testament to all their hard work and dedication. They have done an amazing job since the café  opened a little over 12 months ago, continuously providing exceptional customer service and of course delivering the best cup of coffee to each customer, every single time they visit”. 

Duncan Graham, Managing Director of Retail Excellence, said: “I am delighted to announce the winners of the Retail Excellence Ireland Awards 2022, held in association with AIB Merchant Services. The judging panel has been so impressed by the high standard of retailers across the country and it was extraordinarily difficult to whittle our shortlists down to just ten winners. Our awards night is a marquee event in the Irish retail calendar, and we are proud to honour the best and brightest in the industry once again this year. Of course, we are experiencing a tough trading environment at present, but the drive and ambition of retailers across Ireland ensure we can look forward to 2023 with renewed optimism.”

04 Oct2022 Insomnia achieves Gold Standard at Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards 2022

Insomnia achieves Gold Standard at Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards 2022

Insomnia Coffee Company has been named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies. The awards programme is led by Deloitte Ireland, in association with Bank of Ireland. Insomnia has been recognised as demonstrating superior business performance for a fourth successive year, achieving Gold Standard having successfully requalified as a Best Managed Company for 4 years.

Ireland’s Best Managed Companies Awards programme promotes and recognises excellence in Irish/Northern Irish owned and managed companies and is the only awards scheme on the island of Ireland that considers a business’ performance from every perspective. Entrants to the programme compete for the designation in a rigorous process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices in addition to the strategy, capability, innovation, culture and financial performance of their companies.

Commenting on the award, Harry O Kelly, CEO, Insomnia Coffee Company said: “We are celebrating 25 years in business this year yet are constantly evolving. From its inception Insomnia was built on a belief of having the best coffee and providing exceptional customer service. It is fantastic to see Insomnia move forward with such strength, and to now have a strong presence in the UK market and along with new openings in UAE and Taiwan. This award is a cumulation of all the hard work by the entire team in the Ireland &UK. It is a fantastic acknowledgement for us to achieve Gold Standard and requalifying for a fourth successive year”.

Brian Murphy, Lead Partner for Ireland’s Best Managed Companies Awards Programme at Deloitte said: “Year-on-year we’re impressed by the businesses that qualify and requalify for our Best Managed Companies Awards and in another uncertain year, the entries continued to raise the bar. Despite the challenges these businesses faced, the management teams of the winning companies have embraced new opportunities for innovation and growth, offering best-in-class products and services to their customers and retaining their competitive advantage in a world that is ever-changing.”

Harry Goddard, CEO, Deloitte Ireland and judging panel member said: “A stand out from the judging process this year was the distinct focus of the Best Managed Companies on their local communities, despite their own international growth and ambition. Businesses have a vital role to play in our society. It was clear from the entries this year that they were having a positive impact not only on their own business, but also on the communities around them. I look forward to seeing how these businesses continue to invest, grow and contribute to our wider society.”

Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking said: “This has been quite a year for Irish businesses, a year that began in 2022 in the grip of a global health crisis, with businesses grappling to emerge from pandemic restrictions being met almost immediately by new challenges, the global equilibrium rocked by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, rapid inflationary pressure, tightening labour markets, not to mention, the almost forgotten, but prevailing Brexit tailwinds. The performance of these Best Managed Companies throughout the pandemic and these more recent headwinds is a testament to the energy, resilience and skills of their respective management teams and staff who have all been resolutely tested in ways we could not have predicted over the last few years. Bank of Ireland has been delighted to be able to support them through this year, as their Bank in many cases and also through our Coaches on the BMC programme.”

The members of this year’s judging panel were Frank Ryan, Chair of the Judging Panel; Harry Goddard, CEO, Deloitte Ireland; Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking; Kate Malone, Director of Human Resources, IMI; Feargal Mooney, Non-Executive Director, Meetingsbooker and Colm O'Reilly, CEO, The Business Post.

Summer 2022 is finally here! We’re bringing back so of your whole time favourites this Summer! It’s time to enjoy some of our delicious ICECAPS, refreshing lemonades and delicious iced tea and granita! We're going back to basics with this year's summer menu.  

ICECAP’s

Oreo ICECAP 

The world’s most popular cookie, blended with ice and milk, covered with cream and topped off with some OREO™ cookie crumble for an unrivalled treat.

 

 

Salted Caramel Latte ICECAP 

This blended frappe is the perfect match for Insomniacs who still need their caffeine fix. With a shot of espresso, vanilla, milk and caramel syrup, topped with whipped cream and drizzled with caramel sauce, this is the ultimate afternoon pick me up.

 

 

 

ICED DRINKS

Traditional Lemonade

This is the ultimate refresher for a hot summer's day that will have you transported to a tropical beach upon first sip. A classic iced drink that everyone will enjoy!

 

 

Raspberry Lemonade

Another delicious, light and refreshing summer lemonade with a raspberry twist.

 

 

Sugar Free Peach Iced Tea

​Brewed to perfection our peach iced tea is the ultimate thirst-quenching summer refreshment. Bonus points - it is sugar free!

 

 

 

Watermelon Granita

Granita is an Italian frozen dessert very similar to sorbet, except that a Granita’s texture is coarser and flakier - like eating snow! It's briefly crunchy at the first gulp and then deliciously melts in your mouth. Packed with flavour, it’ll be love at first crunch. 

 

 

 

BAKERY RANGE

Lemon & Blueberry Loafcake

This loaf brings a little bit of sunshine into anyone’s day! Classic lemon drizzle loaf, bursting with zingy lemon and juicy blueberries. Glazed with a tangy lemon and buttermilk.

Morello Cherry Blondie

A fudgy white chocolate blondie with chunks of white chocolate, laced with whole morello sour cherries, topped it with white chocolate and crushed freeze-dried sour cherries.

We were absolutely delighted to be named ‘Retail Franchise of the Year” at the 25th annual Irish Franchise Association Awards. The awards recognise excellence and leadership in the Irish Franchise industry and the only event completely dedicated to those working in franchising in Ireland.

After nearly two and a half years, over 180 representatives from 30 franchises across Ireland, joined together in celebrating the Irish Franchise Association Awards 2022, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin. The Irish Franchise Association Gala Evening and Awards is the single largest event for the franchising community in Ireland. The 16 Awards recognise and celebrate all that is great and wonderful about franchising, and most importantly, the people who make it such a huge success.

Winners are selected by an independent adjudication panel chaired by Bobby Kerr ex-Dragons’ Den, alongside businessman John Lane, Partner at Holohan Lane Solicitors, Mags Brennan, Permanent TSB and Head of Chambers Ireland and Greg Swift, Head of Enterprise for Dublin City LEO.

Harry O Kelly CEO of Insomnia said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be named Retail Franchise of the Year 2022. It is a fantastic acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication of our Franchise team, who have worked so hard over the most challenging few years whilst upholding our Insomnia values”.

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2022 | Insomnia Coffee Company

14 Mar2022 THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2022

THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT 2022

We'd like to say a massive thank you to all our customers for your fantastic support during this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight. 

We are delighted to announce that this year we raised an incredible £16,773 which will go directly to our nominated project in the Unen Choit Co-op in Papua New Guinea to provide technology to improve farming and a solar solution package for energy. This means that since 2009, we have raised over £165,000 for our nominated projects. 

The money raised will:

  • Provide technology to control humidity and moisture to improve the coffee quality
  • Improve the coffee production by providing a solar solution package for energy & communications
  • Create a remote coffee training programme to upskill the coffee producers

Located in a remote coastal region of Papua New Guinea, the Unen Choit Co-op, has achieved the Fairtrade certification in 2016 and has been able to establish a supply chain to bring coffee to market – which is a major accomplishment for the cooperative considering there’s only two ways to reach the villages (plane over the mountains or a 7-hour boat ride).

Today, the Unen Choit is made up of 1750 smallholders and invests their Fairtrade Premium in a range of projects that benefit the local community, as well as helping to assist its farmers. The Fairtrade Premium earnings have allowed Unen Choit to enhance quality and productivity, improve business capacity and empower women.

None of this would be possible without your support, so we thank you once again for choosing Fairtrade and supporting this year’s project.

21 Feb2022 Join us this Fairtrade Fortnight 2022

Join us this Fairtrade Fortnight 2022

Fairtrade Fortnight kicks off today as we at Insomnia are celebrating 16 years of having 100% Fairtrade Coffee! 

Being Fairtrade certified means that the coffee was produced according to international Fairtrade standards and it’s socially and economically fair, including the payment of a minimum price to the coffee farmers. In addition, workers and farmers receive an additional sum of money called the Fairtrade premium. This money goes to a communal fund to be used as they see fit to improve their social, economic and environmental conditions.

Every year during Fairtrade Fortnight we support a nominated Insomnia Community project and donate 5 pence from each hot beverage sold during that period. To date we have raised over £147,000.

This year, all funds raised between February 21st and March 6th, will go directly to the Unen Choit Co-op in Papua New Guinea to provide technology to improve farming and a solar solution package for energy.

The amount raised during these two weeks will provide:

  • Providing technology to control humidity and moisture to improve the coffee quality
  • Improving the coffee production by providing a solar solution package for energy & communications
  • Creating a remote coffee training programme to upskill the coffee producers

Located in a remote coastal region of Papua New Guinea, the Unen Choit Co-op, has achieved the Fairtrade certification in 2016 and has been able to establish a supply chain to bring coffee to market – which is a major accomplishment for the cooperative considering there’s only two ways to reach the villages (plane over the mountains or a 7-hour boat ride).

The Fairtrade Premium earnings have allowed Unen Choit to enhance quality and productivity, improve business capacity and empower women.

The funds raised during this Fairtrade Fortnight will help the Unen Choit Co-op coffee farmers  to improve their coffee production knowledge - which ultimately will improve business capacity and empower the community.

None of this will be possible without your support, so please join us this year!

BEAT THE JANUARY BLUES WITH OUR NEW YEAR MENU!

Kick start the new year the right way with our hot beverages and bakery items. We're bringing back some healthy and vegan items so everyone trying Veganuary - we got you covered! 

Hot Beverages

We’re shaking things up after our indulgent Christmas drinks by adding some nutrient rich drinks that will have you feeling great! 

Ginger Tea

New year, new drinks, right? Our new infusion Ginger Tea is a spicy and fresh new addition to this year! It is served with a slice of Lemon and it will definitely become one of your favourites soon.
 

Turmeric Latte

A golden oldie is our Turmeric Latte! We have a latte love for turmeric lattes at Insomnia and so this delicious and nutritious "Super Latte" is the perfect January drink. 
This is also a caffeine-free drink and carries the perfect blend of cinnamon and ginger, and coconut blossom sugar for sweetness. This can be made vegan by asking your barista to make it with dairy-free milk. 

Vanilla Matcha Latte

Matcha is made from ground green tea leaves, ours is also mixed with a little vanilla for flavour and will keep you energized the whole day through. Vegan? Just asked for it to be made on dairy-free milk...What's not to love.
