Coffee House Retail Design Projects

Café Ho-Sete.

Daren Goldfinch, proprietor of Café Ho-Sete, appointed TK Retail Design Consultants to design a new concept coffee house in the Belfry Centre in Redhill, Surrey. This coffee store is a stand alone mall operation. Following detailed design discussions a new free standing design was conceived, enabling the fit out to be viewed from a 360 degree aspect from the main concourse

Following the successful opening of the Redhill Coffee shop, we were appointed to create a new build on the same format in the Arndale Centre in Eastbourne, Sussex.

These units have traded so successfully that Darren now acts as a consultant and was commissioned by the owners of Café Society to build a design and project management team to create a new coffee retail concept. This project is described below.

Café Society

The first Café Society site in the Royals, Southend, Essex.  The brief was to design a free standing self contained concourse unit with secure storage, all located within the shopping mall. The facility was supported by the addition of a remote food prep and storage facility in the basement. This area was created from a dilapidated storeroom and transformed into a hygienic food prep area. In order to comply with mall requirements the concourse unitary was entirely constructed in stainless steel, providing a hard wearing and hygienic environment for both staff and customers.

The Café Society Southend branch opened on time, within a very strict time frame in order to coincide with the opening of the adjacent unit in the shopping mall. The Café Society unit was also fitted out under budget and is exceeding the income forecasts.

This concept has been so successful that TK Retail Design Consultants have been appointed to design and project manage a new multi million pound coffee house development in Tunbridge Wells. This project is for an innovative concept to bring in a coffee / wine bar offer with an additional locally sourced farm shop / delicatessen facility on the same site. It will specialise in fine wines, fresh produce and home baked specialities.

Café Milano.

TK Retail Design Consultants have been appointed by Café Milano to work on the design for their new concept store in the South of England. The project includes a full pre-lease contract consultancy service, where we will be negotiating directly with the developer on the client’s behalf.

We have designed the store from first principles, including the concept colour scheme, which has been value engineered to meet the client’s operating budget.

Café Milano will benefit from our pre-contract negotiation with the developer, who will provide the shell unit with all services installed in the optimum locations prior to fit out.

Tea House Harrogate, Yorkshire

TK Retail Design Consultants have been approached by the owners of Bean And Bud specialist tea shop, following a decision to relocate from London to open bespoke new build premises in the Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate. TK Retail Design advised them on both the property acquisition and planning rules in the historic town, to obtain permission for change of use. We produced a cost effective solution which was within the tight budget constraints but still provided innovative design features. The business is successfully building a loyal customer base.
