Scott believes there is potential to expand to between 10 and 12 sites from Heaven Scent's current two venues - at Milnathort, Perthshire and at Knockhill Racing Circuit.
He told BigHospitality: “I look at the Loungers concept and I want to do that with Heaven Scent and am now looking for investors.”
Scott opened the first Heaven Scent Coffee Shop, in Milnathort, 10 years ago on the site of a former flower shop. The 'artisan barista' coffee shop offers breakfast and lunch as well as hot beverages and snacks within a homely, relaxing environment throughout the day. It also opens on Thursday evenings as a restaurant.
Earlier this year Scott expanded the concept with Heavens Above, a restaurant and events space on the first floor above the Milnathort site and is accessed through a Smeg fridge door; Heaven Scent Kitchen, which has three vans delivering products to workplaces all over Scotland and Heaven Scent Secret Garden, which is currently awaiting planning permission.
Scott believes the Heaven Scent Coffee Shop concept could work well in suburban neighbourhoods on the outskirts of Scottish cities.
