If you feel a passion to help people and believe that providing good, affordable food and drink in a community space can make a difference then we can help. Check out our recipe for your success to see how we help you get up and running including the supply of one of the packages below, one of which we will recommend according to the space and resources you have available.

We give you all you need to start something new and refreshing! The outcome is a professional espresso-based speciality drinks offer plus snacks and food with the consistency and quality of high street coffee shop chains but at a much more affordable price for your customers. We also have a coffee-cart package which is specifically tailored to help unemployed young people with an entrepreneurial spirit start their own coffee cart business in office complexes, shopping malls or other good footfall locations.

Just Consultancy

At BeanBag we want to help people start a new project and also help existing community cafés run better. You may be just at the idea stage and need help shaping your project, need to sell the idea to your management team or partner organisations or writing a business plan. If you already have a community café up and running but it is not as successful as you would like then we can provide guidance on how to increase profitability, run more sustainably, upgrade equipment, provide food and drinks training, apply for funding and advertise yourself better.
