Cafe2U franchise partners are reaping the rewards of the fast-growing coffee industry by providing the highest quality espresso coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks and snacks to people in non-traditional locations including workplaces and events.
Frothing up a profit!
Faye Cochrane, who owns three Cafe2U vans in Edinburgh, celebrated her third year as a franchise partner by enjoying a record day on one of her vans recently with coffee sales up from the average by a whopping 58% for the day! Faye trades in the Edinburgh Park area of Edinburgh where her clients include HSBC, Tesco Management Offices and JP Morgan.
Rachel Wilson, Cafe2U Bristol, reports a large rise in the demand for flavoured coffee in 2011, with customers trying all sorts of different flavoured syrups and even cocktail combinations! Rachel, and her husband Gary, who were the 2010 Cafe2U Franchise Partners of the Year have customers who have designed their own drinks, which are now sold on the van! As a result of the fantastic range of flavours they can now offer in their great tasting Cafe2U coffee, sales have grown 67% from February to June 2011 and it shows no sign of slowing down.
Tom Acland, UK Managing Director, explains: “With our low overheads and profitable business model, Cafe2U franchise partners visit their customers, prompting them into the purchase decision rather than sitting and waiting for customers in the traditional café setting – in fact,
our vans are fitted with airhorns announcing our arrival with the Godfather tune! We have identified and mapped territory opportunities right across the UK, for single unit franchise partners as well as multi-territory management opportunities.”
A winning start
The Cafe2U Acceleration Training and Launch program is another winner for franchise partners as it accelerates their business development by up to 3 months. With higher takings, larger customer bases and more coffees sold, Cafe2U franchise partners see the success of their efforts far quicker.
Cafe2U has been operating for 10 years, franchising for 7 years in Australia and 5 in the UK with over 50 franchise partners across the UK, and over 100 in Australia and has launched in the US this year. Their franchise model is award-winning and so is their coffee and customer service!
