Aussie brands make the top list

The report also segments the coffee franchise market into delivery type and cuisine. For delivery type, the market is marshalled into dine-in and dine-out options. Dine-in coffee franchises enjoyed the largest coffee franchise market share in 2021. This is driven by food and beverage quality and the standard of customer service.

The coffee franchise market’s cuisine segment comprises lunch, brunch, and coffee and bar, with the latter proving dominant. The market was worth US$42,601.2 million in 2021, and could achieve US$96,826.7 million by 2031.

Specialist coffees, premium roasting methods and the comfort and relaxation the venues provide are key contributors to the sector’s growth, the report indicates.
