Blank Street’s mission is to reinvent the local commerce experience in neighborhoods around the world, starting with coffee shops in NYC. Blank Street is first reimagining the coffee experience—by taking it out of the coffee shop. Instead, customers are served from zero-emission coffee carts and pick-up windows. This mobile cafe brings the warmest vibes while providing the highest quality coffee and food from local vendors in NYC. From cappuccinos and macchiatos, to delicious croissants and breakfast tacos, Blank Street is serving up a selection of delicious delights perfect for any occasion. Find them in Williamsburg, Brooklyn or have them cater your next event!
Issam Freiha & Vinay Menda are co-founders of Blank Street. They created Blank Street as a way to bring street vending into the 21st century and are starting by operating their own battery-powered zero-waste carts that serve specialty coffee & food sourced from local vendors in NYC. Prior to building Blank Street, Vinay and Issam helped scale startups that solved meaningful problems in real estate, construction, and food. As immigrants from India & Lebanon with first hand experience as entrepreneurs, they understand the sacrifice & risk many street card vendors take when they leave home with hopes of building something meaningful in the US. Their vision with Blank Street is to empower small local businesses by giving them access to their suite of plug & play hardware & software products to help them grow.
