About

WHO WE ARE

In 2013 we entered our very first business venture and opened PANNA (Artisan Café & Eatery) in Liverpool city centre on a very tight budget that meant in many cases choosing between what was essential for us to buy and what was really needed to get in order to be able to open the doors. 

From the very beginning we had in mind to build a place where we would simply serve the best espresso in town and cook wonderful food in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. And above all to do things slightly different to those other coffee shops in our area.

After 5 years of hard work, sweat and laughter, PANNA (Artisan Café & Eatery) have been awarded ‘One of the best independent speciality coffee house in North of England’, ‘Highly Recommended Eatery in Liverpool, Best Halloween Decoration in Liverpool and many more amazing awards alongside countless outstanding reviews. We become a part of the local community with many of our guests turning from our customers into our very good friends. We love what we do and we are so proud of what we've achieved so far.

OUR NEW VENTURE-CHESTER

Chester always has been one of our favourite city to visit and with this came a great idea to open our second PANNA in Chester city. We were in the constant debate how beautiful the city was and how amazing it would be to have a coffee house in the heart of the city. However, having opened our very first independent speciality coffee house & eatery in Liverpool in 2013 meant that we had to concentrate on our first baby (coffee house) before moving on.

In summer 2018 we visited Chester again and it all came back to us. We could not stop talking about the city and our dreams of having a coffee house there since then. Two weeks ago, we were tipped off about a building in Chester city centre and we immediately thought that this would be the perfect location for our second PANNA.

Opening in a city centre is something new for us, but with the community spirit, neighbourhood feel and buzzing street that Chester has, as well as the rise in demand for new speciality coffee house in the area, we know PANNA will fit right in. We’re really lucky because, not only did we find a perfect site that we immediately fell in love with, but we also have an amazing team ready to go and start this venture with us. But we will need £35,000 to launch our PANNA (speciality coffee house and healthy eatery). We have been in talk with our bank and they are happy to lend us £13,000, £7,000 will go from our savings, but we just need you to help us raise that extra £15,000 to make PANNA happen… 

If all goes to plan, we’re hoping to open PANNA in November 2018. 

THE CONCEPT

We are opening an independent speciality coffee shop and healthy eatery influenced by Scandi style. 

PANNA (SPECIALITY COFFEE HOUSE & EATERY) WILL BE INSPIRED BY PLACES WE HAVE BEEN, FOOD WE HAVE TASTED AND DREAMS THAT WE HAVE HAD 

Our menu will be created by our love of fresh ingredients straight from the garden. We source ingredients grown by local producers which allows us to bring you the freshest and finest ingredients with authentic seasonal flavours. We treat all our ingredients with care, passion and love. Cut, chop, slice, shred, grate and crush all of them every morning to make sure we keep the freshness and juiciness of each fruit and vegetable for you to enjoy.

Another passion of ours is COFFEE. The best cup of coffee is a lot like a fine art; creativity, passion and imagination are the key factors for creating a masterpiece to remember. We spent a lot of sleepless nights (probably by drinking too much coffee), travelled miles and miles and met countless number of people, just to find the right coffee blend we could be proud to pour into your cup. After all its not just coffee which goes into your cup. It was important for us to find coffee beans that can be traceable back to their origin, this way we can ensure that local farmers in developing countries have a right to a sustainable future. We teamed up with the guys from HasBean to bring you our unique blend called ‘Smooth Criminal’ We will be also sourcing coffee beans (guests blends and single origins) from other guys at independent roasters throughout the UK in order to support independent coffee community locally and throughout the country. 

What’s up with PANNA? 

Okay, it is never easy naming a venue. We were looking for something that represented our passion, our menu, our past but also our future. We wanted a name that had a bit of us, but was also fun and easy to remember. Panna was the perfect choice. It comes from Slovak language and it means pure, innocent, clean, new beginning. 

THE SILVER LINING 

The money will be spent on renovating and painting the new site: toilets, kitchen, building a new coffee shop bar, and flooring. We will need fridge space, an extractor, an oven, a dishwasher, heating system and storage. We wish to keep everything we love about having an independent coffee shop and that is: friendly service, great values, the quality of the coffee and the food. Chester is a city full of character, and we are exciting to play a role in making it the now-thriving hub of independent culture that it is, alongside its neighbours and traders. 

Thank you in advance for your support!

Risks and challenges

Working to tight and strict budgets make this a big challenge for us but we have already been there and the tons of experience and knowledge we have gained from our very first coffee house gave us a reassurance that we can make this work and build a successful business.

We are doing this Kickstarter campaign because for the last 5 years we have created a popular and successful business out of nothing and our passion for great coffee and perfect food has grown more and more. We have created a well-respected business in Liverpool Business District, with a large and loyal followings. We have shown that we know what our guests want and are able to deliver it.

We know all the costs and overheads involved in the business so can forecast and account effectively, as we had done for so long.
