We are delighted to announce that NoChintz is bringing a new coffee house concept to Manchester.
The Foundation Coffee House is a joint venture between NoChintz and Adam Chapman – founder of the Heald Green based QDos Fitness gym.
Outlining the venture and proposition, NoChintz and Foundation Coffee House’s operation director Dominic Beardwell said: “This is the perfect partnership and one which will bring a new cafe concept to Manchester. It’s about taking the best of our skills from NoChintz – strategy, interior design, branding and communications – and fusing them with Adam’s own business prowess along with his extensive coffee knowledge – thus, creating the perfect business blend.”
We have researched extensively including travels across key cities all over the world to identify the best in class and refine its proposition. Adam Chapman said: “I have always had a great interest in coffee, the making of it, the cultures and history of the drink, so its been an absolute delight to extend my knowledge. I look forward to implementing what I’ve learnt.”
Meanwhile, the project’s creative director NoChintz’s Natalie Gray has been exploring the best of the world’s cafe concepts, something which has helped refine the distinct plans for the inaugural 3,500 sq. ft. space: “While Adam’s been expanding his knowledge of coffee, my team’s been exploring the environment and process in which it should be served.” she said.
“We’ve visited some of the world’s best cafés and social spaces – taking the lead from those in New York, Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen and London. This has helped us fuse new ideas with concepts already established internationally; I can’t wait to unveil the completed space.”
The Foundation Coffee team is now focused on finalising the location of the inaugural coffee house as well as assembling its management team, as Dominic continued: “We’re at a pivotal time for the business. We’ll shortly be able to announce the location of the first Foundation Coffee House and we’ll be launching our recruitment programme – I expect it will create up to 12 jobs in the first instance but look forward to recruiting more great people as we grow and look to new locations.”
The Foundation Coffee House will launch in Autumn 2014.
