The company was founded by Ozcan (Jan) Urel in 2010 having worked overseas in hospitality since 1987, coming to England in 1996 working and owning various restaurants across the south of england. He found his first site for Cafe Aroma in the market town of Ringwood Hampshire, providing a friendly, welcoming place for the community to meet up and socialise. He then moved on to open his second site in 2011 in the popular New Forest town of Lymington, where he introduced a takeaway baguette bar to the business. After a successful 4 years running the two businesses he opened up Aroma in the popular town of Poole, Dorset, where he introduced Gelato to Aroma, for the customers of poole to enjoy a scoop of gelato while walking towards the quay or sit in our large garden enjoying the sun. With the business customer base growing, he then opened his 4th shop on the outskirts of the city of Southampton in a small town Totton, where aroma opened its doors in the shopping precinct. Since Totton shop opening Aroma has continued to grow with the expansion of Ringwood shop, opening a new shop in Wimborne Minster square and the opening of a franchise in Shirley Southampton.
