Coming soon a new coffee shop design

A better idea for a coffee shop design to go with our drone delivery service

 

We have been studying the coffee shop concept for some time now and think we have a better more up to date concept.  In visiting and researching coffee shops from national chains to the local mom and pop shops they all seem to have a common theme of openness.  Where in the shop do you go for privacy?


We took note that most people going to a coffee shop are either going there to use their laptop, talk on their cell phones, read a book or newspaper, meet friends or business associates for casual conversation, or perhaps attempt to hold an off site business meeting to name a few reasons people visit coffee shops.  


In today's coffee shops privacy can be an issue.  People walking by or sitting next to you at one of those long tables can see what you are doing and may even comment on it in a feeble attempt to make casual conversation.  Some places have chairs that are not close to an electrical outlet, no convenient tables to put your coffee or "stuff" on, and position you so your knees are above your head and you have to use one hand to hold your laptop in place.  


Having a casual conversation with a friend or business associate, or talking on your mobile phone is almost impossible, trying to sit quietly and read a book, newspaper, or business related material is difficult.  


We think there is a place for openness, and it will be available in our stores, but we believe that privacy, and some genuine level of comfort, is an important over looked concept.  We think protecting your written and verbal privacy in a public place is important.  Thus our new store design from which our drone deliveries will also originate for delivery in that stores area. 


There will be plenty of electrical outlets as well conveniently placed so you do not have to stand on your head, or get on our hands and knees on the floor to find the outlet and then struggle to get plugged in.  


Something else we have thought of is a nicely covered drive through so when it is foul weather you can reach out and retrieve your order with out getting the order, yourself , or your car soaked or covered in snow, or just keep the sun out of your eyes.


In the section below we have posted some pictures of some seating ideas for you to contemplate.  These  particular seating concepts may or may not be used in any of our stores, but we hope will relay to you the privacy concept we are trying to achieve.  The interiors you see  below are for showcasing the seating and not representative of any future coffee shop design.
