Zarraffa’s Coffee Drives into Browns Plains

Multi-store owners of the Nerang, Worongary and Slacks Creek sites have expanded operations with a fourth drive thru, opening at Browns Plains today.

Seasoned franchisees Ben Old and Dion Scholz will expand their footprint across the network adding a fourth store to their operations.

“The new store is located in a very populated and busy area outside of Logan, offering the perfect pit stop for coffee lovers on-the-go or those looking for a relaxed setting to unwind,” said Mr. Old.

Nestled south of Brisbane’s CBD, the Browns Plains drive thru is located in a highly visible and convenient location for commuters and locals alike and boasts 140 square metres, with indoor and outdoor seating for up to 56.

Located at 111-121 Browns Plains Road, Browns Plains, the store services the suburbs of Berrinba, Boronia Heights, Marsden, Browns Plains, Kingston and surrounds.

“We are keen to expose those working and living in the area to our outstanding product, great service and the convenience of a drive thru store.”

“There are so many people based in the area that are on different schedules with early starts, shift work or those who have to commute past our new location. We are sure the combination of a custom drive thru store, relaxed seating area and being open from 5am until late, will be a hit.”

Mr Old believes that to truly immerse yourself in any business and make a success of it you must be an advocate of the product first and foremost.

“I started drinking coffee at what became my first Zarraffa’s Coffee store, when I lived around the corner, and I still drink Zarraffa’s every day.”

The new store will also employ a local team of 25 as they feel it is important to offer opportunities to those who live in the area.

“Any system is only as good as its people and we have a solid team, across all of our stores, some of whom have been with us for over 10 years.”

Zarraffa’s Managing Director, Kenton Campbell said that the wealth of franchise experience that Ben and Dion will bring to the new store will ensure customers receive the well-loved Zarraffa’s Coffee experience from day one.

“With over 10 years in our Group, Ben, Dion and the team will deliver an exceptional standard of service and importantly a great coffee experience.”

“It is the continual reinvestment of our franchisees, the passion for coffee of our entire team and the commitment of our customers every day that has helped build our Australian success story over the past 20 years.”

Zarraffa’s Coffee Browns Plains is located at 111-121 Browns Plains Road, Browns Plains.

Opening hours: 5am – 10pm, seven days a week.


Join in the fun with the Zarraffa’s Barista Team Challenge

Prep your tastebuds, the 2018 Zarraffa’s Barista Team Challenge (ZBTC) has arrived!

You’re invited to watch all of the action across our Instagram and Facebook pages, and support your favourite store teams!

Across 4 days, 21 of the top Barista teams from Zarraffa’s Coffee stores throughout Queensland and Western Australia will take to the stage and test their ability to produce an ‘individually perfect cup of coffee’, in front of a panel of experienced judges.

Teams will be required to make an espresso, pour a perfect latte, and experiment with flavours to create their signature beverage using only Zarraffa’s products, all within the 15 minute time allowance. This year also includes the addition of a Latte Art section, where contestants will showcase their creative flair.

Baristas are required to display their knowledge of the coffee bean and its origins, as well as proving a solid understanding of the ‘liquid gold’ coffee that they are producing in store. With team names like Pimp Ma Latte, Barista Sisters and the Caffeinated Rangers, the challenge is sure to be entertaining!

The best barista teams will be selected to move through to the final round of the ZBTC, which will be held on September 5th. The winning team will be announced on the Zarraffa’s website.

Best of luck to all of the teams, we look forward to sampling all of your signature coffees! Will your local store team be competing?
