A taste of New York

Initially focusing on London, the team will work closely with Blank Street to find spaces between 200 and 800 sq ft across the capital, and will also look to secure 25 locations across the country throughout 2022.

Blank Street is a small-format specialty coffee brand with 30 sites in New York. Through strategic locations and user-friendly mobile ordering, Blank Street is reinventing hyperlocal commerce to deliver high-quality products at a lower price. Following new investment and funding in 2021, Blank Street is targeting 150+ sites globally in 2022.

James Ebel, CEO of Harper Dennis Hobbs commented: “Blank Street has a unique offering that we are confident will prove very popular with UK consumers. We are excited to work closely with them over the coming months to find those initial locations to launch the brand into the UK market.”

Ignacio Llado, UK Managing Director at Blank Street, added: “We have ambitious plans to make London our second-biggest city behind New York, so we can’t wait to open our first shop.”
