Joey’s, the brainchild of local entrepreneurs Jordan Cowen, Michael Koo and Mark Bignell, opened its doors to the public on Friday, 23rd October, breathing life back into the Kangaroo Point Landmark. After a competitive tender process, the iconic Council site atop the Kangaroo Point Cliffs was awarded to Bellissimo Coffee in partnership with Jordan Cowen. “We were thrilled to take over this Brisbane landmark site and can’t wait to share what we have created with the people of Brisbane. Joey’s has been approached with a clear goal of providing the community with a destination to love and celebrate its idyllic surroundings,”  explains Cowen.
