F- Bike Café
Bike Café, which is the first network of cycling cafes in Poland, was created out of passion for bicycles and coffee. Our cafes are placed on properly adapted bikes moving freely in the urban space. Mobility allows us to be always where the heart of the city beats on a given day.
Bike Café appeared on the streets of Poznań for the first time in 2012. Since then, we have been systematically multiplying the number of mobile cafes in Poland and more. Since 2014, the network has been developing in the Franchise model, opening its points in other cities in the most attractive locations in the country. Currently, Bike Cafe bikes can be found on the streets of twenty Polish cities. Bike Cafe outlets also operate in Finland, Denmark and Sweden. The coming year is planned development in Poland and foreign expansion.
As of today, the network has a total of 70 units – 2 own units and 68 franchise units.
The goal of Bike Café is to build in Poland and abroad a network of mobile bicycle cafes based on three principles:
- Point aesthetics + excellent coffee.
- Mobility – we are where our customers are.
- Coherence with urban space and nature.
The Bike Café concept provides great freedom in choosing the sales model.
- Coffee to Go – quick sale from a point on a busy street.
- Event Cafe – a mobile cafe at the conference, market, festival.
- Coffee Island – sale from a point located in a shopping center, train station, office building.
The franchisee decides where, when and in what form it sells on a given day.
Thanks to the developed technical solutions, Bike Café bikes can sell for several hours without having to connect to the media. Bicycles work in absolute silence, in all weather conditions, temperatures from -10 to +35 C. Therefore, we can work at any time of the year.
2 own units:
