Foundation’s motto is ‘coffee is everything’ and we couldn’t agree more.
Foundation Coffee House will open a new cafe in 11 Portland Street in December.
A spokesman for the coffee brand said visitors to Foundation Portland can expect an experience consistent with its Northern Quarter and Whitworth Street locations, boasting design-led backdrops where people can work, relax or socialise, reinterpreted to serve the new location’s high footfall and smaller footprint.
The spokesman said the space will offer a brighter, fresher surround than its sister destinations, with bespoke lighting, a raw but polished aesthetic and an added focus on the take-out options best suited to Portland Street’s bustling thoroughfare.
Dominic Beardwell, director, said:
“As a design practice operating its own food and beverage business we are lucky to be able to approach new ventures with a real understanding of how much design, atmosphere and quality matters; I think that’s part of the reason we have had so much success.
“We are planning to grow the business organically but at the same time, we do have our eye on continuous expansion. We are conscious not to create identikit environments, so as we develop across the city you’ll find that underlying Foundation philosophy wherever you go, but realised through design and service that meets the needs of a particular area or a specific demographic.”
