Description of franchise system

Making the Coffee Bar experience mobile

We are a proud and innovative pioneer in the field of mobile cafe bars! Cafe2U was not only the very first mobile coffee bar in the UK, but we're also the largest coffee van franchise business in the world! We launched the very first prototype of a mobile cafe bar in a van in 2000 in Australia.

This was the first mobile vehicle that offered premium cafe as a franchise business and the profitability of our new concept was extensively tested. The successful Cafe2U company was acquired by us in 2004, and we implemented an effective strategy to form a franchise business.

To manage the entire process efficiently, we appointed a highly qualified General Manager. The restructuring process required a repositioning of the Cafe2U brand to ensure the longevity of the franchise business and to make it suitable for the European and UK markets. As part of the process we redesign the Cafe2U brand, developed core values and a culture of the brand, and defined our key products.

We also developed a comprehensive franchise documentation, an effective territory modeling system, detailed manuals, and an extensive training program, plus an effective food safe system. Today, there are more than a hundred franchises all over Australia and more than fifty Cafe2U franchises in Wales, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Ireland.

Franchise concept

A business with low start up costs

Joining Cafe2U allows you to use our fully developed and proven system. This includes:

  • business know-how
  • logos
  • products
  • marketing strategies
  • designs
  • operation manuals
  • business planning
  • training packages
  • standard operating procedures
  • ongoing support
  • quality control

Normally, our franchisees service up to thirty businesses every day, and each business provides at least five or six sales. This way, you will easily have more than hundred and twenty transactions/day. The average sale is about £2.60, so just take a minute to calculate your potential earnings!

Most of our franchisees work from 7am to early afternoon, but of course it's totally up to you to choose your own hours. Another potential income stream for a Cafe2U franchisee is servicing events. Predominantly, this will take place during the weekends, servicing local schools, sporting organizations, private functions, and community events.

Servicing events can be a very lucrative income stream, but, again of course it's entirely up to you if you want to profit from servicing events or not. We don't charge any royalties or a support fee like the competition does. We want you  to become a successful business owner as soon as possible!
