The purpose of Cafe2U is to deliver the highest quality espresso coffee and convenient food options to nontraditional locations.


First prototype mobile café vehicle launched in Australia on Sydney’s northern beaches. It was with this first vehicle that the mobile café concept and potential profitability of this new style of business model were tested.


Mobile coffee business franchise model was complete and Cafe2U was relaunched in the Australian market with 12 franchisees, all of which were Sydney based. Proof of concept commenced in Leeds in the UK with a view to expand the brand internationally.


Franchisee family grew to 50 in Australia and 6 in the UK. Rated as one of Australia’s top 7 franchise systems by the Financial Review ‘Smart Investor’ based purely upon franchisee return on investment. This was a result of an independent rating of over 600 Australian franchise systems. Listed in Australia’s Business Review Weekly (BRW) Fastest 100 franchise systems.
