20 years of Reval Cafe
Reval Café is celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer. This wonderful brand has won the hearts of its customers with 16 Reval Café locations across Estonia along with standalone Reval Gelato cafes and a Take-away shop.

We wish continued success to Reval Cafe and their hard working team.

The ‘By Chefs’ sub-category is given an elevated appearance through the use of a more minimal design aesthetic.

Celebrating Entrepreneurship at Beckworth Emporium
Numerous businesses have worked incredibly hard during the last few months to survive the COVID-19 crisis. During this time, the management team at Beckworth Emporium have demonstrated a true entrepreneurial ‘out of the box’ thinking.
This independent business, situated in rural Northamptonshire, has for many years provided a combination of Food, Gifts and Garden supplies along with an Award Winning restaurant employing close to 200 local people. After the initial lockdown period, early July saw Beckworth Emporium re-open its door to ‘retail only’ by taking the existing restaurant and food hall areas and turning them into the most generous retail space providing ample social distancing.
As for the restaurant, being such a key part of the Beckworth customer experience, the management quickly decided that when lockdown allowed, they use a glasshouse building as a temporary Pop-up Restaurant. Re-using the existing furniture and kitchen equipment, adding new screens, wall structures, AstroTurf flooring along with a totally new branding and graphics concept, the warm and welcoming ‘Garden Restaurant’ was born! This whole process took ‘less than six weeks’ with just a little help from KVB Design. In early august, the new spacious Garden Restaurant opened its doors and happy queuing customers adopted the new Restaurant from the very first day of opening.
Is this the largest COVID friendly Restaurant in the UK? What we definitely know is that Beckworth Emporium has proved that ‘In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity’, as quoted by Albert Einstein.
With a little help from us on the new Garden Restaurant name, Logo, Branding, Graphics and design of the restaurant layout concept and temporary structures.
