All About Us

Our History

In 1999 husband and wife team Michael & Nikki McQuillan opened their 1st streat café in Belfast. They developed the name from a combination of 2 of the most internationally recognised words in the English language - 'street' and 'eat' with the intention of one day becoming a worldwide brand.

In 2003, after opening 7 of their own cafés, Ian & Colette Pennick joined Michael & Nikki to develop a successful franchise formula, which boosted the growth of the business to 25 cafés across Ireland.

Today the streat brand is owned by the Henderson Group, who continue to develop it, and who have introduced an 'in-store' model for forecourts & convenience stores, which has now been rolled out to over 70 locations across Northern Ireland. In each location you can find a combination of coffee & hot drinks, treats, sandwich deli, hot food deli & snacks & pre-packed sandwiches, wraps & salads - each combination tailored to suit the needs of the local community.
