Here's some "Wheely" great news - everyone's favorite bicycle cafe, Wheelys, is branching out to serve more than just coffee. Two years after the first Wheelys was built in a basement in Malmö, the franchise has unveiled the Wheelys 5 Open Source. The fifth generation bike cafe can whip up not only coffee, but also fresh organic juices, crepes, and ice cream.
The original Wheely’s café was little more than a humble coffee-making box on a bike. But, the company’s dedication to sustainable products and efficient design led to 550 cafés popping up in over 65 countries. The latest Wheelys cafe branches out from selling strictly coffee to act as a full-service, high-tech mobile kitchen.
The Wheelys 5 is decked out in cutting-edge technology. A solar panel on top the cart provides clean renewable energy, and built-in LED lights illuminate the cafe at night. The kitchen offers a 3 burner gas stove, running water, a hand sink, and a built-in display, and the cafe can event be outfitted with Wi-Fi. Despite all that tech, Wheelys is still a small organic business based on down-to-earth sustainable values. It’s still your friendly neighborhood cafe, just with more stuff.
