We had a quick Q&A with the team at John Doe of Diss to find out a little bit more about them...
Tell us a little bit more about your fascinating history?
“John Doe first opened his carpet business in February 1983 after 19 years as a carpet representative. After many successful years growing the business alongside his wife Angela, in 2015 John and Angela decided to step down and leave the business in the very capable hands of their two sons, Edward and Charles Doe. Since 2015, the third generation has joined the family business with Charles and Lisa’s children Nathan, Megan and Charlie Doe all taking important roles within the company alongside their parents.
We strongly believe that what sets us apart here at John Doe is our tight-knit team and the service that we give our customers. We are a family company, not just family owned but a family right at our heart. Our company ethos and values reflect that of a family and this comes across in our working environment and ultimately the attentive, premium service that we offer every customer old and new.”

Offering a diverse selection of specialty coffee, freshly baked pastries, homemade cakes and delicious brunches and lunches prepared with premium local ingredients. Our coffee lounge is named after Angela Doe, a prominent figurehead and leader within the company since we were founded in 1983, without whom we wouldn't be where we are today.
