Working with Two Hands Food Food Group
We build strong relationships with our clients and so when someone we’ve worked with for many years changes job roles this can lead to some new and exciting opportunities for us. That’s what happened on this project and we were delighted to be approached to work on a project for Two Hands Food Group.
This is a coffee shop concept which is being rolled out in serviced office environments around the country. In the early stages of discussions, we helped the client with indicative specifications and costings, and provided data for their business modelling. We were then asked to complete designs for the upcoming Edinburgh, Exeter and Southampton coffee shops. This involved working with the design teams for each site as all locations were different. As well as the cafes being aimed at office workers, they also have a street entrance so are open to the public.
Our client was very clear about what was needed so we received strong and clear briefs and were able to quickly complete designs and move the projects forward. The Edinburgh site was the first to be completed and is now open. With all projects you discover challenges along the way; we did the cook-line canopy installation which involved some co-ordination with both the main contractor and mechanical contractor. There were some issues with connecting the canopy to an existing system, but we quickly found a solution and were able to keep the project on track. Now Edinburgh is open, Exeter recently completed on site and Southampton is due to be ready later this summer.
After employees have spent so much time away from offices, we feel this is a clear sign that workplaces are coming back. It may not be exactly as it used to be but it’s exciting to see moves towards something more normal. It’s important to have a good food offer in an office environment as often these are places where people come to be creative or connect with other team members. You need to be able to offer high quality food that is on-trend, so workers aren’t tempted to head to the high street.
Look out for more updates on the Two Hands Food Group over the coming months.
