At Zipcar, we’ve teamed up with a wide range of businesses as part of Zipcar for Business. From our own experience, we know that it takes a sheer amount of passion and determination required to start a new business, which is why we love working with local start-ups and getting to know the people behind them.
When one of our newest customers, Scramble, let us know that they were opening a pop-up location in Old Street Station, we couldn’t help but stop by and see how they were doing.
As well as being long-time friends, flatmates and gym buddies, Jake and Alex have always had a passion for health and nutrition. Living and working in central London and being fully acquainted with its hectic commuter lifestyle, they quickly became frustrated with the lack of healthy breakfast food options for people on the go. With society becoming more and more health-conscious, the guys spotted a huge gap in the market just waiting to be filled. Jake’s creative background met Alex’s experience in business management, and Scramble was born. With a focus on fast, nutritious food, Scramble offer a range of healthy fast food options such as egg pots, protein pancakes and shakes, and they aim to make a deep impact on the fast-food market with their unique approach to eating on the go. For their part, Jake and Alex love being able to work independently and take control of the work they do, as well as the rewarding reactions they’ve been getting from the public, which have been overwhelmingly positive in the short time they have been operating.
From private events to London pop-ups and market stalls, transportation and mobility have been key to Scramble’s success; so in addition to the fantastic support the guys have had from their friends and family, we wanted to know how Zipcar has helped them expand their business. Along with special business rate pricing and the convenience of having a Zipcar around almost every corner, Jake and Alex were particularly happy with the inclusion of insurance and fuel costs in the hourly rate - an important feature for young entrepreneurs getting a new business off the ground. Jake and Alex from Scramble are full of the passion and ‘go-getter’ attitude that we love at Zipcar, and we’re looking forward to working with them as they continue to grow and fulfil their dreams!
Scramble will be located in Old Street Station until December 20th; pop down and check them out (we recommend the Vanilla Almond Shake!). You can also follow them on Instagram here to keep up with their latest news.
