Social enterprises, Change Please and Toast Ale, launch Good Company – a café and brewery taproom experience, helping fight food waste and homelessness
We have collaborated with Toast Ale, the sustainable brewer that uses surplus bakery bread in their beers, to open the Good Company, a café and taproom experience at 17-19 Triton Street.
Situated in the heart of British Land’s Regent’s Place campus, Good Company customers can swing by for a coffee or beer (or settle in and enjoy both), knowing the money they spend is helping fight homelessness and fix the food system.
Good Company will serve breakfasts and cakes by Breadwinners, a social enterprise helping refugees. Lunch and dinner service will include a selection of sandwiches, salads and hot pies by the B Corp Pieminster. There will also be exciting food collaborations for the Taproom late evenings on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
The drinks menu will include the full range of Toast beers, as well as carefully selected guest beers and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks from B Corps and social enterprises.
Good Company aims to be more than just a place to drink great coffee and delicious beer - it will also host regular events, including talks and film screenings.
The space will also host barista training with Change Please for members of the homeless community, helping increase the number of lives the coffee company can change.
Cemal Ezel, CEO, Change Please Coffee said: “We’re excited to be opening Good Company, a unique, new space, that not only provides the area with award-winning coffee, food, beer and fresh entertainment but gives back – so every visitor makes a positive difference to society and the planet.”
Additionally, as part of its commitment to zero waste, Good Company is reusing furniture and equipment left behind by the previous cafe that closed due to the covid lockdowns. It is also sourcing second hand furniture from various sources such as the CIC Orange Box.
Good Company will work with other mission-led businesses such as Too Good to Go who enable the sale of discounted surplus cafe food to customers through its app, and Bio-bean who collects spent coffee grounds to create coffee logs for heating.
Louisa Ziane, COO, Toast Ale, added, “We’re excited to be opening Good Company, where Toast’s Bread Quarters will be based. We’ll have all our beers on tap plus guest beers by other social impact breweries and a really exciting range of other drink options. We’ll also be hosting events to bring sustainability and social responsibility to life, making the space a hub for progressive businesses.”
So why not come along and see what all the fuss is about – we can’t wait to see you there!
Good Company (17-19 Triton Street, London NW1 3BF) is open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, with extended opening for the taproom to 10pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Triton Street is located within Regent’s Place, an office-led development with a mix of retail, leisure and public spaces owned by British Land. It benefits from its location between one of London’s most beautiful parks, the heart of the West End and the Knowledge Quarter.
