  Kudu Coffee   John Saunders - Charleston, South Carolina
     “For years, I have spent many, many hours in coffee shops all over the world. I knew what I had to “feel” and “see” when sitting at a table drinking coffee and talking. Design & Layout Services very professionally, efficiently and meticulously, worked within the space I had and put together the design and look that matched what I had in my mind’s eye. I had seen pictures of DLS’ work and I knew this was the group that would do what I wanted. I have recommended DLS over and over again, and I am privileged to say that our shop is the envy of others who tried to cut corners.” - Kudu Coffee  


  High Point Coffee   Thomas Blanche - MS, TN, UT, CA, NY
    “The process of opening a business is very stressful and you have made it much more enjoyable. We are particularly pleased with your quick turnaround time in producing our plans. Additionally, you have provided some great ideas and insight to differentiate our shop in the ever expanding retail coffee business. The installation took only two days and everything fit together perfectly. I was impressed with high quality of materials and workmanship in the cabinetry that you provided. I have recommended DLS to many clients and they also have been very satisfied.” - High Point Coffee

  Kokopelli's   Heather Morrison - Federal Way, Washington
    “Being a first time cafe owner, I was looking for someone who could assist me in all aspects of opening a coffee house. I found more than I ever could have hoped for in Design & Layout Services. From my first call, to the opening of my cafe, they went above and beyond the call of duty. I had questions far outside the line of their described services, and still they were willing to find the answers by talking to my contractors, city officials, and the health department. I would recommend Design & Layout Services in a heartbeat because of their vast knowledge, reliability, honesty, and ability to make me feel comfortable and confident in my decisions. I look forward to the success of my first store and to sharing it with them, and to opening another cafe in the future.”  - Kokopelli's

I wanted to pass it along to you all so you know how well received your services are here.

  Rebekah's Espresso   Beazabih, “Buzz“ Felleke - Lemoore, California
    “Two years ago I was surfing the internet to find a designer that could help me build my dream coffee house in the city of Lemoore, California, when I found Design & Layout Services. They started working with my architect before the plan was even drawn, and all throughout the planning process. Design & Layout Services worked with my contractor to make sure all the electrical and plumbing requirements were met. The staff was available at all times, because they took my project as if it was their own. I highly recommend Design & Layout Services to be your future partner in helping your dream also become a reality." - Rebekah's Espresso

They know the industry and the proper placement to optimize space. After explaining our vision, Design & Layout Services knew what we wanted and what layout we were looking for, and they got it right the first time! We are in the final stages of the build-out and the flow is perfect. Their services are unmatched in the industry. Well worth every penny.” - Crescent Moon Coffee & Tea
