A franchisee powerhouse trio has just opened a sixth Zarraffa’s Coffee store, the 76th outlet in the coffee chain.

The south-east Queensland drive-thru store at Molendinar store is operated by seasoned franchisees and local family Mayur, Rupa, and Nikhil Patel.

The trio have been franchisees for more than 18 years. Together they own Zarraffa’s Coffee stores across Browns Plains, Chatswood Road, Slacks Creek, and Ormeau in Queensland, and Coffs Harbour in New South Wales.

Zarraffa’s CEO, Marnie Sheldon, said “This opening represents another milestone in Zarraffa’s continued growth, taking our brand of specialty coffee know-how to more locations across the state, and soon, the rest of the country.”

The coffee chain has plans to launch in other states within the next 24 months and grow in areas within existing territories.

“After two decades it does really feel like we are just getting started and have big plans to accompany our desire to bring our brand of specialty coffee to more people,” she said.

Sheldon indicated the growth will continue to be “healthy and measured” to ensure franchisees thrive.
