Coffee Franchises

Coffee Shop franchises can be a high-profit franchise opportunity. Most consumers have a favorite brand of coffee, which they show a high degree of loyalty. 

The major franchise brands in this sector have stylish high street outlets, where consumers can work, chat, and meet free, often providing free wi-fi. This is a popular feature with workers, shopper, and families alike.

As reported in the Financial Times (March 2015), UK coffee drinkers purchase 1.7bn cups each year. The coffee market has enjoyed impressive growth in recent years. There are now around 18,000 outlets in the UK, according to industry specialists, the number of outlets is expected to rise to 21,000 by 2020.

Many savvy investors can see the potential of running their own franchised Coffee Shop. A coffee shop franchise is an obvious choice, with various investment levels required, first-class training, support, and computerized ordered systems.

Coffee business opportunities have now even diversified into other areas, including vending franchises and van-based mobile franchise opportunities, to further quench our thirst for our favorite beverage.
