Kimbo Coffee set to expand in UK leisure sector
Kimbo Coffee, the Italian coffee brand, is to target the restaurant, hotel and leisure sectors for future roll-out in the UK.
The brand, which is from Naples in southern Italy, will be exhibiting at European Coffee Expo 2019 at London's Olympia on 21-22 May.
Damon Wilson, commercial manager at Kimbo UK, said that he had a “good look round” at the European Coffee Expo 2018, which took place earlier this year at London’s Olympia, and received positive feedback from friends and colleagues.
Wilson said the company was set to launch a range of new products into the market including a 1kg coffee tin and an organic coffee Nespresso compatible pod.
“Our key focus going forward is casual dining, leisure, hotels, quick service restaurants,” he said.
These include chains with high street visibility that sell a good volume of coffee. The company is also focusing on good quality independents through its distributor network and groups of between 10 to 500 sites.
He said: “We are a traditional Neopolitan roaster and all our coffee is roasted and blended to Neopolitan recipes so it is a little bit darker, a little bit more intense and has a little bit more structure.”
