D-Day has arrived

Today we signed our lives away and got the lease on the first outlet secured. These are the keys to the Urban Coffee Companies first outlet.

Where is it located?

In the heart of Birmingham’s business district just off Colmore row. It’s 30 Church Street, which is opposite Hotel Du Vin and next to a Baguette du Monde shop. If you navigate around Birmingham via pubs it’s 3 doors down from Utopia.

The Birmingham business district is made up of companies such as HSBC, PWC, KPMG, Grant Thortons, Wragge & Co, Eversheds and Direct Line and contains many regional offices. Some 24,000 people and 500 companies work within the district which makes up less than 1 square kilometre of Birmingham city centre. The area has also just benefited from two major developments which has added 44,000sq ft of commercial office space to the district.

What next?

Well next we start the process of converting it from the furniture retail space that it was into an urban rustic coffee outlet. This will take 4-6 weeks to complete so we are hoping to open late July or early August.
