Cafe2U is a van based franchise, delivering the highest quality espresso based beverages to non-traditional locations; being anywhere that a consumer would not expect to access a high-quality espresso based coffee. Since the first van launched in Sydney, Australia in 2000, the brand now boasts more than 250 franchises worldwide, including over 100 across the UK, New Zealand and South Africa.

Our franchisees concentrate on establishing a daily run within their agreed territory and primarily focus on the servicing of businesses located within commercial and industrial estates. An average franchisee will service a number of businesses within their territory.

In Australia, franchisees generally start trading at around 7am and are finished by early to mid-afternoon; however, trading hours remain totally at the discretion of the franchisee and what they are looking to achieve from their Cafe2U business.

The second component of the business model is event work. This generally takes place on weekends and includes serving local sporting organisations, schools, community events, corporate events and private functions. Event work can be a great addition to any business but is entirely up to the individual franchisee.
