This week marked another success for Boxpark Croydon, as we were crowned Most Innovative Food and Beverage Concept at the Retail & Leisure International (RLI) Awards 2018!
RLI is an international publication that provides expert analyses on the industry’s leading operators, and Boxpark was served the honour at a special awards ceremony, held at London’s Natural History Museum on Thursday night.
Speaking on the success of Boxpark’s second incarnation, Roger Wade, creator and CEO, said, “This is a special award! I want to say congratulations to the entire Boxpark team, and a special thanks to BDP, Stace, Croydon Council, Schroders, Boxpark's traders, and most of all, the people of Croydon for their support!“
Boxpark arrived in Croydon in November 2016 and quickly immersed itself within the fabric and culture of the bustling, and rapidly evolving, South London town. The success of Boxpark 2.0 has been immeasurable and overwhelming and so we’re stoked to see the site scoop another award.
Boxpark will continue to evolve into pastures new with the launch of our Wembley site in late 2018, and things at Shoreditch are better than ever. We hope you’re as excited about the future of Boxpark as we are, and we thank you for your continued support of the work we do and the incredible and unique traders that we work with.
