Company Description

What is Kefi? It’s both a Greek word, and a new place for kids and families to hang out together. 

At its heart, Kefi is a reimagined space for families where parents recharge, and kids learn to develop the superpowers they’ll one day use to change the world. It’s part playground, part work space, part coffee shop, part theme park, part high tech gaming arena, plus a lot of other parts left to be explored.

Our first location in Atlanta is a 25,000 sq. ft. retreat for families and communities to play, explore and become closer. Kefi play experiences will use tomorrow’s technology and story-based adventures for children to learn and play together.

What Is Xander Coffee

Within every Kefi location will be a coffee shop branded Xander Coffee, whose mission is to deliver the preeminent coffee bar experience for families. Xander will be a satisfying treat for both kids and parents – with a mix of classic coffee favorites, on-the-go options, and bottled drinks and snacks – providing moments of togetherness and connection for families. Xander Coffee will sprinkle play in the cafe by offering games and toys for kids to enjoy.

Xander will strive to provide an amazing coffee, beverage, and snacking experience that suits the entire family. With a focus on delicious coffee for adults and healthy snacks, cookies & milk, and more for kids, we will deliver a customer experience and environment for families that is unmatched by current offerings in the market. (Not to mention this area is a coffee desert and the community needs us!)
