Meet Arika and Nikaela. These two sisters always knew they wanted to be their own bosses. For years they visited the idea of starting a business together. They've explored concepts like nails, cocktails, skincare, and clothing... until they stumbled upon the idea of opening up a cafe. Being Brampton natives, they found that Brampton had almost no locally-owned cafes. They decided they wanted to bring their own cafe to Brampton. A place to hangout, have a first date, or work on your own side-hustle. By bringing their Asian influences to the table, they merged their love for bubble tea with their love for European specialty coffee, and added their flair for hosting.
Bean + Pearl aims to be a diverse, open, and welcoming space. Soon after the opening of their first shop, they brought their cafe to Toronto's Stackt Market. Only the beginning of what they hope is the growing of this dynamic industry.
