Let's get to know Panzer's Deli

Community and collaboration play a huge part in hospitality. We thought it'd be a great idea to ask some of our customers a few questions about who they are, and share them with our wider community.

What better place to start than an establishment which has been around since 1944 – a destination delicatessen with a sustainability focus! We're proud to collaborate with Panzer's Deli in producing their stunning coffee cups, providing plant-based alternatives where needed, and working together to promote a circular economy.

We ran some questions by Panzer's Deli owner David Josephs.
