Roots / the local soup kitchen


„Roots - the local soup kitchen“ is an organic fast food gastronomy concept. Choose your soup, combine it with a skewer and enjoy it outside in the nature. The clou: we changed “to go” to “go to”. A map on the lid gives the customer orientation and leads him to nice places to sit nearby the store. For the packaging a ring made of bioplastic is used to carry the skewer. The wood tiles reflect the naturalness as well as the tradition of the soups. Unique is the continuous grain of the wood tiles all over the surface.
