There’s a new coffee spot in Glasgow that makes sure you definitely get change with your purchase.
Social Bite is a social enterprise that helps people experiencing homelessness by offering training and employment. Their newest café opened on 27 April in Buchanan Galleries on the city’s busy Sauchiehall Street
Josh Littlejohn MBE, co-founder and executive director of Social Bite said: “We are thrilled to open our new flagship coffee shop in the heart of Glasgow.
“I really see this venture as the new blueprint for our social enterprise business model offering the best-in-class food, coffee and environment for our customers to enjoy, whilst also making a massive difference to people in a situation of homelessness in the city.”
Since starting as a small sandwich shop in Edinburgh in 2012, Social Bite has become one of the best-known names tackling homelessness in Scotland and beyond. They have hit the headlines in the past hosting fundraising sleep-outs that thousands took part in, as well as welcoming royalty and Hollywood stars like George Clooney through their doors.
