“If you’re that good at PR and marketing, why don’t you start your own sales business?”
That’s a challenge we have heard from many clients over the years – so it’s one we decided to rise to!
In August 2015 we launched out our own independent coffee bar, Big Shots Coffee Co. together with a number of local businesses; Yorkshire Payments, Sleigh & Story, Henderson Property and Flying Saucers.
Initially conceived as an added benefit Faith PR employees and to the tenants in our building, it was an idea that caught on and the café now caters to the local business population and wider general public. Not only does it make the perfect location for weekly WIPs and business meetings, the whole venue can also be hired out for networking events or launches.
For Faith PR, Big Shots also served as a canvas on which we created the name, brand, promotional video, marketing literature, press release and social media platforms as well as influencing the actual internal décor and menu.
We’ve pulled out all of the stops at Big Shots to make sure it is kitted out with meeting essentials, including free Wi-Fi, phone chargers and spare stationery. All of the food has been locally sourced plus the coffee is some of the finest available (we’re not biased – honest!)
The café opened its doors for the first time on 19th August and was officially launched by Calderdale MP Craig Whittaker. We were delighted to welcome over 200 business owners, clients and local councillors along to the launch event.
It’s an exciting venture for everyone here at Faith PR, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Big Shots.
