wearesdi merges retail and hospitality..

As an end-to-end design led manufacture we started seeing a large cross over in the retail and hospitality industries at design level so we started utilising our extensive retail experience to provide mobile karts/pods & front of house fitouts to the hospitality industry.

In the wake of the pandemic our mindset was challenged, and we wanted to utilise our retail experience but also provide a safe and welcoming space and drive commercial benefit. We understand safety was a top priority as workplaces reopened and businesses wanted to ensure their teams are supported a physical environment that drives collaboration and productivity with great food offers and outdoor spaces.

Our solution was to provide bespoke and tailor made PODs for outdoor trading for inhouse coffee and food brands. This would in turn provide flexible eating environments and keep the industry moving!

As industry leaders in design led manufacturing and providing independent businesses with tailored solutions. We’ll guide you through a multitude of considerations, from site surveys, development planning, creative design and service recommendations to build a bespoke ‘pod’ to vend from.
