  Pheasant Creek Coffee   Geoff Corey - Apex, North Carolina
    “Design & Layout Services did a fantastic job! My general contractor and architect both commented that they had not seen a client so far ahead of the game. I reviewed the layout with a consultant and they were amazed. No equipment was missing, and everything was set up for efficiency in the operation. The people at DLS were responsive and helped me make my first store possible. My hats are off to Design & Layout Services! I will be using them for the next store!” - Pheasant Creek Coffee  


  Picasso's The Art of Coffee   Christopher Schulte - O‘Fallon, Missouri
    “Design & Layout Services helped us immensely in the planning and design of Picasso’s. From contacting the local health department, to making sure all codes were being met, to the final installation of our equipment and counters, you served as a valuable ally in creating a shop that was both aesthetically pleasing and functional. The experience your staff has in designing coffee shops helped make sure we avoided costly mistakes in the set-up of our shop. I strongly recommend Design & Layout Services if you want to get it right the first time.”  - Picasso's The Art of Coffee

  Astor's Cafe   Jeanne Astor - Glen Burnie, Maryland
    “Most new, independent café owners have no idea how complicated the process can become, how quickly the limited funds can disappear and how disheartening it can be to deal with certain departments within each state and county. It has truly been a satisfying experience working with Design & Layout Services! The expertise you’ve shown with the contractor and health and building department have saved me countless hours, not to mention a fistful of dollars!” - Astor's Cafe  


  Palm Springs Koffi   John Abner - Palm Springs, California
    “The Design & Layout team recently helped us open our second café. Their plan set was complete prior to the construction of the building. Our general contractor said they made his job much easier and everything fit perfectly. We highly recommend them to any serious café owners who want things done right and on time and on budget. They also secured equipment and supplied us with beautiful custom cabinetry that compliments the interior design of the café. They are truly part of our business success equation. We will unquestionably use them on future projects.”  - Palm Springs Koffi

  Retro Roast   Heidi Rosati - Lorretto, Minnesota
    “When we first decided to put our time and money into building a coffee shop, we had thousands of ideas but no clear understanding of how to put them into motion. Design & Layout Services was was an invaluable resource, from start to finish. Throughout the build-out phase, floor plans were modified, health codes were interpreted and equipment choices were made, all with the assistance of DLS. They saved us time and money in the end!” - Retro Roast

    I was continually impressed by Design & Layout Services’ unwavering support and sincere dedication to the success of my project. Their staff is first-rate, and with mine being a start-up business, the depth and scope of their expertise in all aspects of coffee and teahouse operations was invaluable to me.

  Coffee Labs Roasters   Mike Love - Tarrytown, New York
    “We were getting ready to open our new coffeehouse and attended a seminar on layout and design. Being from the restaurant business, we knew it was important to maximize the space with the best layout. Design & Layout Services provided that from beginning to end. The service was fast and efficient. Design & Layout was patient with all the changes that needed to be made. Our contractors loved it. The layout plans they provide made it quick and easy for the contractors. It saved us time and money!! You can’t beat that.” - Coffee Labs Roasters  


  Java Island   Charles Christie - Clear Lake, Iowa
    “We, like most people opening a coffeehouse, had limited funds. When major decisions are involved and large dollars attached to those decisions, I believe in allowing those best qualified to guide us along the way. Design & Layout Services was invaluable in many ways. They allowed us to concentrate on other important details, so we actually opened sooner than expected! Design & Layout Services kept us from making mistakes related to design, drain and electrical placement, mistakes we would have made if we did it on our own. Thank you for your expertise and assistance in my project.” - Java Island
