Looking for someone that wants to start a coffee shop within our shop

We’re looking for someone with a lot of passion and drive to get involved with a shop we’re opening in the Hackney Downs area. The space is big enough to accommodate a cute coffee offering and the ideal person will know their stuff about the coffee biz and be into running their own cafe within our shop. We’re reasonable people offering a pretty ideal opportunity for the right person. You’d pay us a small rent and work with us on what you want to do but basically have free reign on your thing.There it is. If you or someone you know might be interested please get in touch with [email protected]

    Hi there.We’re unfortunately not looking to open a coffee shop but we are a young design team who’ve recently set up an interior design business in Hackney. If you’d like to get in touch, please do. We’d love to do a coffee shop (a dream job for us because we love coffee). We can do murals, signage and interior design. Sounds like a great idea! The more coffee the merrier.

    Ooh, excited that there’ll be a new place opening near Hackney Downs. Good design & coffee getting closer to where I live!

    @chaseandsorensen I think I might have spotted your new shop today โ€“ is it just a couple of doors down from the Pembury Tavern as you’re walking towards Mare Street? If so, it looks like a really nice space, and I’m looking forward to having a good browse when you open. Best of luck it anyway!

    So glad to hear that you guys are opening up! I too am opening something in Hackney Downs – more deli/ bar and restaurant… Glad to hear I won’t be alone!!
    Very good luck to you.

    Hi @chaseandsorensen not sure if you are still in the process of opening your cafe within the interior design shop. Currently, I’m supplying baked goods for Organic & Natural, both savory and sweet, that are doing quite well. You can find my profile under the business listings for Vegan Peasant Catering. I’m happy to supply on a no minimum basis till you get a feel for what your customers want and like. My email is [email protected]

    Kind regards,

    @elizaflan @chaseandsorensen Would love to help out local businesses. I can offer my Graphic Design services too if you haven’t have one already! Branding, business cards, brochures, menu etc. I have recently re-branded Hackney City Farm, msg me for portfolio.
