Kiss the Hippo targets more openings

Kiss the Hippo opens its doors in Mayfair with three more openings expected this year.

A London-based speciality coffee shop has secured a new site in Mayfair. Alongside this opening, Kiss the Hippo plans to open a further three branches in the capital city by the end of 2024.

The business, which was founded in 2018 by Can Eren, opened its seventh site in Covent Garden earlier this month, on the former The Espresso Room site in New Row. It has now signed for an eighth site within the Crown Estate in Mayfair.

Managing director Alex Damgaci said: “We’re thrilled to open our new store in Mayfair at the end of March. We’re growing our presence in the specialty coffee industry with the efforts of our strong and dedicated team, and aiming to have 11 cafés in London by the end of 2024.”

Kiss the Hippo is the first carbon-negative specialty coffee company in London dedicated to making coffee with a difference; bringing high quality, ethically sourced and sustainably roasted coffee to the UK and beyond. It launched its first café and roastery in Richmond in 2018 followed by sites in Fitzrovia, Shoreditch, King's Cross, Fitzrovia Corner, and Chelsea.
