Grind & Co
Husband and wife Rani and Christine Ousman have turned a shipping container into The Grind & Co. After running Deluxe & Co Beverage Catering for the past four years, the pair has taken plonked their container down in the middle of Alexandria's Heritage Business Park and tricked it out as a very pleasant cafe.
The Grind & Co has managed its issues of space by finding the right appliances and by using every inch of space available. The best example of this is the vertical herb garden that adorns the outside of the container.
It serves its own house-blend coffee, crafted after years of experience in the coffee-cart business. The food menu will feature sourdough sandwiches, baguettes, wraps and salads, all made on-site. There are Friday barbeques and some Middle Eastern fare, inspired by Christine's heritage.
