The UK coffee market has seen a decade of rapid growth and there appears to be no end to the trend of café culture. Branded coffee chains have shown strong resilience in the face of a very challenging UK economy and this sector still has room to grow. As a result, there are many coffee shop and café franchise opportunities. Many high streets are now dominated by well-known coffee franchise brands and the idea of owning and operating a brand such as the Starbucks franchise or a Costa coffee franchise, in particular.
Coffee shop franchises are not all premises-based as there are a number of mobile coffee franchise businesses in the sector, which offer a very low investment level. These van franchises deliver coffee to the customers’ door with highly-skilled baristas that are trained to produce the perfect coffee. Coffee café franchises have diversified throughout the years and many now offer a selection of hot and cold beverages, muffins and baguettes, as well as freshly prepared sandwiches, fresh juices and smoothies.
