MORE THAN JUST TWO WHEELS

Bike Café

Bike Café – Poland’s first mobile café chain – has its origin in the passion for bicycles and coffee. Our goal was to find a technically superior and visually striking solution, so that our “coffee bike” would impress with its functionalities and please the eye of passers-by with its original design. We wanted our mobile café to become a real highlight of Polish cities!

FROM CONCEPTION TO IMPLEMENTATION

Our story

We first explored the idea of a mobile café many years ago. We knew that we would come up with something truly unique! We worked really hard to win the hearts of coffee and bicycle lovers in Poland.

JUNE 2012, POZNAŃ

Launch of our Bike Café

After months of preparation, we succeeded in creating Poland’s first bicycle café. It was a process of trial and error, but we learnt from our mistakes. Before the launch, we were very anxious, but the stress we felt turned out not to be entirely needless. The residents of Poznań gave us an enormous amount of support and encouragement.

DO YOU KNOW THAT...

Our first bikes were extraordinary – and almost faultless. The key word here is "almost". In practice, initially some elements did not always want to work together properly. What did we do? We continued to upgrade the design and ultimately achieved a fault-free bike.

MAY 2013, WARSAW

Bike Café takes the capital city by storm

It took us a year to get from Poznań to Warsaw. It turned out that Warsaw’s residents also had a great craving for our coffee! The success encouraged us in our belief that our coffee was really appreciated.

JUNE 2013, POZNAŃ

Let’s raise a coffee toast!

Our third café in Poznań: exceptionally long queues, loads of work, litres of served coffee and crowds of satisfied customers. It was at that time that we first thought of franchising... to share our success with others!

JULY 2014, POLAND

Franchising power

The launch of the franchising scheme was a big step in the history of Bike Café. Thanks to other enterprising coffee enthusiasts, our mobile café become a permanent fixture in the streets of Tricity and Toruń!

2015

We are growing!

Our bike cafés hit the streets in a number of Polish cities. Welcome to Katowice, Lublin, Wrocław, Warszawa, Toruń, Gdynia and Katowice!

Kwiecień, 2016

Success!

We receive an award in the Poznań Entrepreneurship Leader competition (start-up category). Our contribution to making European cities more attractive is appreciated.

Lipiec 2016, Helsinki

First mobile café in Finland

That summer was very hot for us! Our bike first hit the streets of Helsinki – and the reaction of the city’s residents exceeded our wildest expectations!

AUGUST, 2017

We are in Sweden!

Our team grows to include very enthusiastic franchisees in Sweden. Love from Karlskrona!

2017, Polska

We are quite a bunch!

We are 100% mobile, so we can always be a part of the beating heart of the city. As of 2017, we have a total of 20 mobile cafés!

2018, DENMARK

We set out to conquer Copenhagen

The only thing that was missing in the city of bicycles and cyclists was Bike Café... but not any more! We kicked off our business in Copenhagen – and we took to the city like a fish to water.

AUGUST, 2018

We are biking our way into Budapest.

Yes! We have conquered another European city. There is nothing like a delicious sip of coffee in the streets of Budapest :)

OUR SUCCESS STORY SO FAR

This is what we have achieved so far, but we have not reached our potential yet!

There are 60 Bike Cafés in Europe. You can find us not only in Polish cities, but also in Finland, Denmark and Hungary. The evolution of the Bike Café chain marches on! We will announce new Bike Café locations soon.

WE CREATE FLAVOUR

Coffee and roasting plant

Bike Cafés serve a coffee blend made from 100% arabica. Our coffee beans are sourced from the Pena Blanca region in Honduras. Roasted locally in Poland, in Craft Coffee Roaster in Poznań, the beans acquire a unique flavour and aroma which are guaranteed to satisfy even the most demanding coffee enthusiast.

It has a unique flavour with hints of dark chocolate, walnuts and marzipan, and its sweetness is complemented by acidic notes. Our coffee delivers more than just exceptional taste. We also offer environmental awareness and responsibility: our coffee is produced with care for the natural environment, and holds an organic farming certificate.
