Jimmy’s Iced Coffee has gone from being an experiment to a celebrity-endorsed brand stocked by the likes of Tesco, Ocado and Wholefoods. Its quirky nature has amassed a strong social media following and extended to the office employees now call home.

Featuring a skateramp and housed in a warehouse-style space, the office encourages group eating and a collaborative way of working for this beverage business.

Jim Cregan, founder and MD of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee, told Real Business: “We wanted the design of the office to be somewhere that you’d also hold your 21st birthday. We wanted a space that inspired people, energised people and didn’t bore people. We are asking people to work long hours in the office so we think it’s only fair that it’s a nice place to be.

“The crew love it, we are always evolving as more people come into the business and we welcome change with eyes wide open.”
