At Bedrock, we are experienced in creating branded environments for educational settings and tailoring commercial brands to a university audience. Depending on your budget, we can either completely redesign your environment or refurbish it. Your café design needs to be both inviting and commercially viable as catering becomes an increasingly important revenue stream. Our knowledge of Caffè Nero ensures that your University cafeteria design project is as innovative and competitive as a high street brand or an independent.

UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS - "I was introduced to John and the team through our partnership with Caffé Nero, and since then Bedrock has designed and developed nine outlets across campus. Their input has completely changed the look and feel of the catering portfolio, which in turn has played a key role in our commercial success. John understood immediately the vision and it’s a great pleasure to work in partnership with someone so passionate about his work."
FRATELLI - “It has been a pleasure working with Bedrock design over the last 20 plus years. John Burholt has helped me enormously with the development of Caffè Nero initially and then Fratelli Deli Café, developing and keeping our interiors fresh and innovative. I would strongly recommend Bedrock to any new or existing business within the food hospitality sector, as I believe they commit to understanding clients aims and targets.”
CAFFE NERO - “I have worked closely with John and the team at Bedrock ever since I joined Caffè Nero in 2002, they understand us completely. Designers talk a lot about passion but at Bedrock their work speaks for itself.”
Our introduction to the university sector began with Caffè Nero’s first on-campus coffee shop for the University of Leeds. Our design for the Laidlaw Library won the pitch because we adapted the brand to be sympathetic to the building and student vibe. We have now designed six individual café projects for Leeds and delivered two more Caffè Neros. We have used the bespoke approach for many university cafeteria designs and also for concessions within Blackwells Bookshops. More recently we have designed Caffè Nero’s first store for ‘Aroma’ their new franchise brand, at the University of Warwick.
