The company is hoping to appoint 15 new franchises within the next 12 months across New Zealand, with around half of these on the South Island.
John Stanton, Cafe2U’s Australasian recruitment manager, believes Cafe2U’s business model will appeal to both coffee drinkers in New Zealand and residents seeking alternative models of employment.
“Many of our franchisees enjoy the lifestyle element of being part of the Cafe2U business – it is a mobile operation and is often outdoors. Typically, franchisees will have an early start and early finish, allowing them more free time, which is often a very attractive prospect,” said Stanton.
As part of its franchise package, Cafe2U provides Mercedes Benz vans housing coffee making equipment, enabling franchisees to pull up outside of work places and events and provide a service once restricted to coffee shops.
Cafe2U has 200 franchises globally across Australia, the UK, and US.
