Grind & Co
David Abrahamovitch, Kaz James
Grind & Co is an independent retail chain serving coffee and cocktails in unusual spaces with a killer soundtrack (figuratively, of course). The last two years have seen the company expand from just one site in Shoreditch – complete with a recording studio on the first floor – to five, with three more in the pipeline. In the same period revenue has increased fivefold, with the company serving more than one million cups of coffee per year. In June 2015, Grind & Co raised £1.3 million through equity crowdfunding site Crowdcube in order to fund a new coffee roasting facility.
