Event description

Description

Never before have we had so much variety and so much accessibility to food and drink. With trucks, pop-ups and on demand services, we are only a click or a short walk away from international gourmet cuisine. As social media and trends continue to drive what we eat and where we eat it, where does Real Estate fit into this ever changing landscape?

Join us to find out!

Helen Carr - Leasing Director: F&B and Leisure: Battersea Power Station Development Company

Nick Tolley - Founder / Executive Chairman: Taylor St

Nick first started in coffee some ten years ago when he and his siblings (Andrew and Laura) launched one of London's first speciality coffee businesses, Taylor St Baristas, in 2006. Taylor St today boasts 9 cafes in and around the City of London and continues to blaze a trail in the UK's quality coffee sector with its world class barista training program and innovative store designs.

In 2012, Nick (and Taylor St) worked with Tesco to launch a more mainstream speciality coffee business called Harris + Hoole. This business grew quickly, opening over 50 shops in some 3 years, and today is one of the largest speciality coffee businesses in the world. Nick left Harris + Hoole in 2015 to refocus his attention on Taylor St, which, in 2016, opened both its first store abroad (in New York City) as well as a coffee roasting business back in London.

Prior to coffee, Nick worked as a management consultant in Sydney. He has a BA/BEc from the Australian National University and an MBA from INSEAD.
