By Guido’s calculations the Guardian coffee shop is costing them £240,062-a-year, that’s around £20,000 blown already since it opened at the end of May. They were clearly having a slow start when Guido paid them a visit, though perhaps things have picked up? One co-conspirator decided to find out yesterday lunchtime:
The numbers don’t look good either. At prime time they had only sold 94 cups, well short of the 270-a-day they need to stay afloat.
Maybe Guido is being unfair and it’s not just Guardian Coffee that is struggling. How might the other cafes and restaurants in the Shoreditch box park be getting on by comparison?
