Their franchisees are passionate about coffee and if you are coffee loving entrepreneur, joining the Cafe2go network may be the popular, profitable fun business opportunity you have been looking for.
The concept under the spotlight
The Cafe2go team is focused on partnering with landlords, venues and event organisers looking for a turnkey coffee deli solution and a win-win relationship. Cafe2go has three business models to choose from — (1) Coffee Trailers for outdoor events, that also includes a pop-up for indoor events; (2) Corporate Coffee Deli’s for business parks, retail sites and office buildings; (3) a Drive-thru Coffee Deli option housed in a customised shipping container.

Combining the best of responsible sourcing and dedicated local roasting to create a consistent, satisfying coffee experience, Cafe2go works closely with various coffee roasteries and have created their own house-blend. The Cafe2go menu was designed based around feedback from their customers about what they like and how they like it. In the spirit of promoting and supporting local businesses, food options are sourced from local suppliers. With prior permission from the franchisor, franchisees are allowed to customise their menu to cater to local market preferences.
The ideal franchisee team has an experienced and dynamic barista and an outgoing, experienced sales person. In addition to consistently making exceptional coffee, the barista should have ‘star power’ and great people skills. As an on-site manager responsible for opening and closing the business they should also be trustworthy. The salesperson’s responsibilities include customer care and marketing the business in the franchisee’s catchment area. Cafe2go Drive-Thru’s and Café’s also employ kitchen staff.

In order to ensure that quality standards are maintained, all coffee and consumables must be ordered from the designated suppliers, while food orders are channelled through franchisor-approved third parties. The franchisor uses their overall purchasing power to negotiate best quality, prices and terms from their suppliers.
