Ecco started out creating vibrant and fun coffee-shop and eatery style solutions within the corporate world. They began their pilot concept of Ecco as an Artisan Coffee and Gourmet food solutions for the Corporate Market within the advertising Agency of TBWA Fusion & The Marketing Agency of JMC Melnics back in 2004.
In 2008 opening a specific in-house operation at the Head offices of the prestigious Advertising Agency of Ogilvy Cape Town and for the last 6 years Ecco’s largest project has been taking care the African foot print of Amazon.com
Creating a footprint within Cape Town, offering the perfect mix of great coffee with awesome café food to more than 5000 happy customers within the established corporate offices.
Although they have been around for quite a while, working the corporate scene meant that they never really had a street presence. This has happily changed, and they have launched two new high street stores in 2016. One is found in Salt River’s up and coming and trendy Durham Avenue and the other in the heart of the urban business community of the Foreshore, opposite the Media 24 Building and close to the new Christian Barnard Life Memorial Hospital, on Rua Vasco Da Gama.
For all people’s wellbeing three places exist, the first place is home, the second place is work and the third place is where you go to treat yourself. The wonderful thing about coffee shops are that they easily combine work and spoiling of oneself. In essence, ECCO, is that third place where the best elements of, home, work and play find a happy co- existence.
