Hear Our Keynote Talk

Setting up a restaurant or bar? Need to up your game to win customers? Come to the Restaurant and Bar Design show and hear how an injection of design personality could be the missing ingredient you need.

Starting at 11.45am on Wednesday 26 September, Avocado Sweets Directors Evros and Susie Agathou, will discuss the importance of personality in design as a key tool to entice and retain customers.

The keynote talk will draw on nearly a decade of experience in the industry. The pair, described as ‘having vision in spades’ by the Metro newspaper, will reveal how a carefully balanced interior full of personality has helped their customers succeed in this competitive market.

From new start-ups to established names, Avocado Sweets has helped launch and develop a range of brands in and around the capital. Our innovative designs have won the attention of the media and design lovers at home and abroad.

“Interesting people get remembered. So too for interesting concepts and spaces. Get it right and your venue will already have the edge in this increasingly competitive market place. Get it wrong and your exciting concept risks ending up an expensive failure,” says Creative Director, Evros Agathou.

“Looking good on the surface can never replace a carefully thought through design personality,” says Managing Director, Susie Agathou. “We like to be inspired in our personal interactions so it’s important to think about the interaction your customer is having in your physical space. If you bore your customers, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity.”

The studio’s latest commercial design opening, Moto Pizza, in Chelmsford is a great example of an independent full of personality holding their own against the many chain operators in the area. Heaving with customers from day one, Moto’s fresh logo and interior have helped the owners make a splash and keep the customers coming back from day one.
