How Snakes and Lattes is climbing the ladder

When you are setting up a new business it always help if the market you are proposing to enter is growing, or even better you are on the cusp of an upward trend. Trend analysts are talking about a resurgence in interest in board games, in the same way that more people are joining craft classes, stitch & bitch groups and other pursuits more popular in years gone by.


Here is a cafe in Toronto, Snakes and Latte that has developed a unique proposition around board games. It makes available over 1,500 different board games, which you can play with your mates or even with total strangers - another way of social networking? Whilst it stocks staples like Monopoly it also has more complex offerings such as Jumanji and Fireball Island for real games aficionados to show off their skills. 

               

The cafe's baristas serve as 'strategic advisors' (and stop any squabbles?) as well, dispensing instructions and tips for play along with the frothy beverages. Snake sand Lattes will shortly be starting themed nights, youth-focused initiatives and a rental system to let customers play the games at home.
