Arch (Shoreditch)

My journey at BOXPARK has been such a positive one. Boxpark has enabled me to launch my business in the hub that is Shoreditch. They have been so supportive over the last three years and I can genuinely say that it is such a great community to be part of. I cannot recommend highly enough!

Astrid & Miyu (Shoreditch)

Astrid and Miyu first joined the BOXPARK location in Shoreditch in 2019. Our brand has had and continues to keep performing well. We chose BOXPARK because we wanted to be part of the community in such a fantastic location. We are a fast growing company and BOXPARK has been a great support during this time.
BOXPARK creates a great community for both established and emerging brands. There is a great sense of partnership with BOXPARK. There is fantastic support for engaging with the community and having events and making it a real destination. It is always great to see different brands appearing and making it different from other retail locations. During the pandemic Boxpark has been supportive and communicated well and assisted us in a smooth transition and reopening.

The Argentinian Grill & Noodle Bar (Croydon)

Our journey started in BOXPARK Croydon four years ago with our concepts, The Noodle Bar and The Argentinian Grill. With BOXPARK's consistent support and direction our businesses have grown dramatically and within the four years of trading in Croydon, we have successfully launched WOK N GRILL in Shoreditch and The Argentinian Grill Wembley.

BOXPARK have shown such incredible substructure, community spirit and sustainability that our businesses have also managed to survive the pandemic.

We feel lucky working alongside BOXPARK'S diligent team and well established brand.

Bad Axe (Wembley/Croydon)

As a new UK business, Boxpark gave us the opportunity to have our first unit in this country. We're so grateful for all the support they have shown from the beginning and particularly throughout the pandemic which enabled us to expand further to their Croydon branch.

All the other fantastic traders really compliment each other and make it a great experience for the customer.

The Barber Club (Croydon)

We opened our second site in May 2018 at BOXPARK Croydon. At the time, I believe we were the first non food business with the site, benefitting ourselves from all the local businesses and offices in the local area.

We’ve always felt that the BOXPARK site itself was a great community of businesses, with support from BOXPARK itself, from their social media team, as well as their maintenance team which have helped with any issues within our stores.

We’ve thus far had a great relationship within BP, benefitting from the wide range of events that are put on all year round, and look forward to continuing our work with them for the foreseeable future.

Barbersmiths (Shoreditch)

My experience with BOXPARK Shoreditch could not of been any more pleasant, from right at the top to all the cleaners etc every single person is a pleasure to work with, I’ve really enjoyed my time there so far and hopefully I can carry on this journey for many years to come. All my team have built great relationships with people within the building and that couldn’t explain any better what BOXPARK are trying to create and achieve.

BAO BAO (Croydon)

We have been trading at BOXPARK Croydon for almost 5 years, it has been a wonderful experience. We are still glad with our decision to join the Boxpark family 5 years ago. BOXPARK has been very supportive to its tenants in all ways, including attracting footfalls, promoting our shop, helping us to recruit the right staff, negotiating better deals with Deliveroo etc. The management team at BOXPARK Croydon is very friendly and efficient, whenever we have an issue, it's always solved straight away to avoid any potential damage to our business. Especially when the pandemic started, we were all a bit panicking because no one knows what will happen and worried that our business will be affected severely.

BOXPARK immediately announced emergency plans and provided clear guidance helping us to follow the government guidelines. Our rent was removed completely during the whole lockdown. Boxpark helped us get through this terrible period and we are very grateful!

Big Mike's Calypso Kitchen (Croydon)

As a small Independent Business in the hospitality Industry Big Mike’s could not have been provided a bigger or better platform to showcase our culinary wares than BOXPARK Croydon.

The infrastructure from secure clean units an exceptional buzzing food hall that provides an exciting and diverse culinary experience to customers. Combine the aforementioned with the marketing support and the events that drive footfall to our doors that we would not get on the High street.

We have technology support that’s invaluable and accessible (free) & a working environment not second to anywhere in London. I reiterate Big Mike's Calypso Kitchen provides a “small taste of Barbados, BOXPARK partnership makes it a big taste of the Caribbean.

Black Bear Burger (Shoreditch)

Prior to BOXPARK we were only trading at weekend markets and street food events, having the ambition to one day open our own restaurant. Fortunately, BOXPARK saw our potential and we opened up for business at the end of 2017. It’s been a great platform to develop and grow and we’ve learnt so much along the way which has prepared us for opening our bricks and mortar restaurant in 2019.

Like us, BOXPARK have also grown in the last few years and we look forward to coming along for the ride on new upcoming projects!

Chilango (Croydon)

Being part of the BOXPARK plan in Croydon from the beginning has been a fantastic opportunity for Chilango. In recent times and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic the team at BOXPARK have been very supportive to us as a business from not charging us rent while we were closed which was a huge relief for us and many other partners. The team have also been approachable when we relocated to a smaller unit as the restrictions eased. Agee, Dan and all the team did all they could to help us as we reopened for delivery and then for guests socially distanced. We have felt both supported and part of the success and are really excited about what the future has in store for our relationship for the months and years ahead”

Coqfighter (Croydon)

BOXPARK Croydon was the launchpad for our restaurant brand. It was our first permanent home after a series of pop ups and allowed us to nurture a customer base for the first time. BOXPARK plays a vital role in the industry as it removes some of the barriers of entry that stop young entrepreneurs from taking the next step.

This results in a wonderful offering unlike anything you will find elsewhere which attracts people from all over the world creating an overwhelmingly positive and vibrant atmosphere.

Fanny's Kebabs (Croydon)

We joined the BOXPARK family in late 2020, looking for positive options in the middle of the pandemic & hospitality crisis. Team BOXPARK have been so supportive & helpful throughout the process - most notably really supporting tenants through these ever-changing times. We have loved working with such a proactive and forward-thinking group of people & look forward to a long future at BOXPARK. It's such a vibrant, fun & eclectic space to be a part of.

Fatto A Mano (Croydon)

We’re proud that Fatto a Mano Pizza is part of the BOXPARK Croydon family of traders, and see them as an amazing asset in the local community. Boxpark is an amazing mix of food and drink, social entertainment, retail and events. And their substantial investment has played its part in reinvigorating Croydon, both as a destination for daytime and the nighttime economy, and as a premier place to head to in South London.

We’ve known the Boxpark team for a long time, and continue to be impressed by their willingness to invest in their people, the creativity at the core of their business, and the consistency, seriousness and professionalism in operating the site, that often gets overlooked but is at the centre of what makes it a really special place within Croydon.

As a small independent pizzeria business started in 2015 in Brighton, we’re owner managed and have grown from our own resources. When we talked to the team at Boxpark, we were really excited about bringing our pizzas to Croydon as our first step outside of our home town. And now we’re open, it’s only getting better and better as the audience returns post lockdown.

Pop Golf (Wembley)

BOXPARK made it possible for us to launch our first site in a popular mixed use destination, right outside Wembley stadium. They are the perfect compliment to our proposition and it's great to be surrounded by independent businesses who thrive on creativity. Our favourite thing about being part of the community is the BOXPARK Black Card, which is a ready made database for us to market to and grow our business.

Poptata (Croydon)

Poptata bagan as a pop-up street food stall in London's Portobello Market back in 2015 before joining the BOXPARK family at Croydon, in 2016. The idea was simple, create and serve a delicious combination of well-flavoured loaded fries,freshly cooked to perfection.

BOXPARK has been key for the growth of our brand in terms of visibility and brand awareness thanks to the incredible marketing , content creation and obviously footfall. As a self - funded business it would be impossible to start with a brick and mortar and BOXPARK Croydon gave us the incredible opportunity to set up a full kitchen within an amazing food hall and with a limited budget.

After 6 years in business and thanks to the help we received in terms of rent from Boxpark during the pandemic we are still operating at 2 BOXPARK locations today.

Humbledough (Shoreditch)

Humbledough Chose to work with BOXPARK Shoreditch for our very first site. As a young business, BOXPARK gave Humbledough the support we needed to open our store in January or 2020. They are a great forward thinking and proactive partner for us and throughout the difficult times of COVID have shown flexibility and care towards traders. Through the energy Agee and her team put into BOXPARK and the traders that are located in the Shoreditch site it has become a great destination hub food and entertainment.

Rudie's Jerk Shack (Shoreditch)

We launched our Jerk Shack concept at Boxpark Shoreditch in Dec 2018. It was the perfect spot for a cool new Jamaican street food concept and the positive reaction of the Boxpark crowd proved that almost instantly! Boxpark draws a broad spectrum of people which means footfall is distributed throughout the week which is great for food partners such as us who are open 7 days a week. The Boxpark brand is strong and the wide variety of events and promotions undertaken by Boxpark ensures there’s always a constant stream of people for us to feed. We’re very proud to be associated with such a fun, well managed and high profile organisation.”

Sweetbean (Croydon)

As a start-up business BOXPARK ticked all the right boxes, initial low costs, amazing for brand exposure and being associated with BOXPARK opened many more opportunities. They have been upmost supportive from the very beginning, helping on marketing and getting me going. As with any business there will be difficult times especially in a start-up hospitality but having BOXPARK as my landlord has been a blessing, the help and support during difficult months has been amazing. They helped me move units within BOXPARK to gain more from my coffee sales which has helped Sweetbean considerable. The head office is always at hand if you require to promote products and any marketing campaign you wish to offer. Regular tenants meeting to keep us in the loop for upcoming events so we can maximise on sales and for them to get feedback from the traders and act on it has been constructive year on year.Would recommend Start-ups and established business alike to get involved if there is a unit available, truly a unique place to have your business.

Sugar & Style (Shoreditch)

Sugar + Style have been tenants at BOXPARK Shoreditch for over 4 years.  What started off as a small one woman band has grown into a small team of 10, and Boxpark has 100% been imperative to the success and growth of the brand.  Their help and support over the years, especially during the pandemic, has been invaluable, and it's for this reason that I've always considered their management team as an extension of our own team.
 
My favourite thing about BOXPARK is the focus on independent labels.  The BOXPARK team work really hard to curate an interesting selection of brands, both permanent and pop-ups, who individually compliments and adds to the mix without creating any direct competition. The size of units, and thriving location makes it the perfect space for a new or growing business.
