New pop-up cafe trend easily con­tained

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

SEE­ING a ship­ping con­tainer at Perth Air­port might not be some­thing un­sual, but this one is sure to bring a smile to trav­ellers.

The new Kwik Kof­fee Kiosk has been housed in the con­tainer thanks to the com­bined ef­forts of con­tainer com­pany Royal Wolf and cof­fee ex­perts Ya­hava.

A 10-foot con­tainer cube is con­nected to the main struc­ture to pro­vide ro­bust, se­cure stor­age for con­sum­ables.

Nathan McKen­zie from Royal Wolf said there was a con­tainer-café revo­lu­tion sweep­ing the na­tion as the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try looked for new op­por­tu­ni­ties in a com­pet­i­tive mar­ket.

“Con­tain­ers of­fer a highly adapt­able and cost ef­fec­tive­way to bring the pop-up store trend to life in a range of lo- cations which would have not oth­er­wise been avail­able to re­tail­ers and hos­pi­tal­ity providers,” he said.

He said the con­tainer for Ya­ha­van’s kiosk had been mod­i­fied into a fully func­tion­ing cafe com­plete with fridge panel in­su­la­tion.
