Vegepatch Studios Moves In To Palm Beach Pavilions
Entrepreneurial couple Jordan Galinie and Molly Bowes are bringing specialty coffee, clean treats and hand-made homewares to Pavilions Palm Beach, with the opening of their boutique Vegepatch Studios store this week.
It will be the first venture for the 25 year old pair who, after spending six years working in the hospitality industry, want to go back to ‘good old fashioned quality products and friendly service.’
After a stint in Sydney, the couple relocated to the Gold Coast at the beginning of the year and discovered Palm Beach, securing a 24sqm space in Pavilions for their boutique cafe.
Mr Galinie says Vegepatch Studios will be a ‘homely’ space with a focus on quality product.
“The shop is quite cosy but it’s all we need, all of our energy is going in to ensure we have the best coffee in town, and that we offer an experience true to us that keeps people coming back”
“Everything in store will either be hand made or sourced from people we know and trust to deliver good quality.
“Our house coffee will be supplied by Artificer Coffee in Sydney, with other specialty blends from a number of small local businesses in South East Queensland.
“We’ll have cakes and sweets from Fuel Bakehouse and Bes Kitchen, catering to all tastebuds and dietary requirements.
“Handmade ceramics, coffee cups, candles and incense burners will be available, “along with our branded Vegepatch Studios merchandise.
“We are taking everything back to basics. We’re all about supporting small and local businesses, offering clean food and good coffee, and giving great service.”
Vegepatch Studios is the latest in a stellar line up of new retailers to join Pavilions Palm Beach following a major renovation of the shopping centre, which is owned and managed by Consolidated Properties Group.
New retailers include Hunky Dory fish and chips, Pattysmiths burgers, Domino’s Pizza, Salt & Co butchery and F45 gymnasium.
Consolidated Properties Group National Manager for Retail Leasing Rob Clifton said the rejuvenation of Pavilions had given specialty retailers of all sizes an opportunity to move in to an established marketplace.
“Last year we moved the Pavilions Palm Beach Coles supermarket from its old premises in to a new, purpose-built space, which created room for specialty retailers to come on board,” he said.
“It’s fantastic to have a mix of franchises and larger operations in the same precinct as smaller boutique businesses, offering real variety for our shoppers.”
