Coffee that Makes a Change, with Help from FCB Inferno, Now Available in Stores
In early 2015 FCB Inferno’s Head of Planning, Chris Baker, watched a stream of commuters ignore a homeless person on their way to buy a coffee and realized there was a simple but serious way to disrupt this everyday occurrence.
In November that year FCB Inferno launched Change Please, in partnership with The Big Issue and The Old Spike Roastery. It quickly gathered momentum and, in less than two years, it has expanded to eight carts throughout London and seven permanent positions in corporate offices nationwide. And now, the coffee will be available in Sainsbury’s stores nationwide. The premium, speciality-graded coffee will be available in over 375 stores, and will continue to provide income for the homeless throughout the country with all profits being used to reduce homelessness across the UK. The in-store launch follows the success of the mobile coffee carts that in under two years have grown from one cart in Covent Garden to eight carts scattered throughout the capital city, with a further seven permanent locations.
Thomas, one of our baristas, said; “I've made a lot of mistakes in my life, I never thought I’d make it past 30. Now I'm 34, I have my own flat, and best of all I can have a chance to succeed and have a nice productive successful life with all the support anyone could ever ask for. Change Please means "LIFE" for me, I wouldn't be here now without them, I know this for sure.”
Change Please coffee is available in over 375 Sainsbury’s stores nationwide. It will continue to provide income for the homeless throughout the country with all profits being reinvested into the scheme to continue our growth.
