JP Then, Crosstown
I am the co-founder of Crosstown & Director. Crosstown is a London-based brand that was founded in 2014, specialising in premium handmade doughnuts and specialty coffee. There are currently 4 permanent stores, with an additional 2 opening in 2017. As well as its retail presence, Crosstown wholesales to the likes of Selfridges, Wholefoods and Air New Zealand (served on Business Class flights to LA). Crosstown also has a fast growing online business, with a strong lean towards corporate gifting, catering and events. Before founding Crosstown, I spent several years in consulting, working with businesses and brands on all things strategic. I was born in Scotland, grew up in Australia, and has resided in London for over 7 years. I holds two degrees in Economics and Business, graduating on the Deans Honour Role for High Achievement from the University of Queensland.
