Busy BB’s 2012

Our interior design service for BB’s stepped up a gear in 2012 as we opened 2 new stores, with refits to a further 4 stores.  We are delighted to be in the mix for plenty more muffin design action this year too.  Here is a selection of tasty pics:

Mountainous Challenge…

Retail Ignition founders Glenn and Mark were out fundraising in July on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care, joining an intrepid team to complete the National 3 Peak Challenge.

Facing all weathers from scorching afternoon sun on Ben Nevis, to crisp morning sunrise on Scafell Pike and buckets on rain on Snowdon, the 10,000 ft total climb and travel between mountains was completed in a respectable 26 hour time.

A fantastic experience that will live long in the memory and a huge thankyou for all the kind sponsorship pledges received.

Time Cafebar – 2nd Location Opens

Retail Ignition have created crisp and vibrant interiors for Time Cafebar’s 2nd location opening within the Four Seasons Shopping Centre in Mansfield.

Time Cafebar are dedicated to offering a more customer focused British Cafebar experience than your recognised High Street coffee houses.

The design intergrates a traditional food pass arrangement and square profile catering display units built into deep edged solid surface worktops to provide a modern, sleek counter servery. This is complimented with a combination of cosy  booths, banquette seating , sofas and dining chairs to complete the relaxed ambience.

Taste – Fresh New Cafe Hits the High Street

Retail Ignition were appointed to design and deliver a new cafe experience for emerging food and beverage retailer Taste, situated on High Street Cardiff (a stones throw away from the Millennium stadium).  We worked with the Taste Team to further develop a concept originally devised in-house at the founding Taste Cafe in Romford, creating a warm relaxed ambience using a muted cream, brown and green colour palette.  Bold stripy wallpaper adds a contemporary feel and large comfy leather sofas are the perfect spot to enjoy a fresh coffee and wholesome home cooked food.

This is the first Taste site run under a franchise licence with more planned for the future.  It was a pleasure working with such an enthusiastic and visionary client team and also with a professional and reliable fit-out contractor in the form of locally based Collins Construction.
