CBRE Investment Management has announced that Black Sheep Coffee, is taking space in the Lion Walk shopping centre in Colchester.
The new 1,900sq ft Black Sheep Coffee will cover the ground floor and feature the brand’s coffee menu by day. By night, it will transform into a late cocktail bar serving ‘signature’ espresso martinis as well as craft beers, wine, champagne and prosecco.
Founded in 2013 by Gabriel Shohet and Eirik Holth, Black Sheep Coffee started out as a small stall in Camden and has now become a multi-million-pound business with 50 locations across the UK. The brand is now looking to major cities and key regional locations to expand its portfolio.
Caitriona Hunter, Director at CBRE Investment Management commented: “Our strategy for Lion Walk is to offer interesting retail concepts, such as Black Sheep Coffee, for our visitors. This new signing is a celebration of the appeal of Colchester as a key UK city, following the recent award to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. This new city status provides Lion Walk more gravitas and as a key location for quality brands to build upon their London presence as they grow nationwide.”
