We are committed to changing people’s perceptions about coffee. It is about making the coffee experience relevant and less about addressing a need for caffeine. We are focussed on turning locals into connoisseurs, fastidious about the quality of coffee they consume and the way it is served. Frankly, we aim to turn the café culture on its head.
Too many franchise opportunities buy you a job, rather than a business – you get the stress and long hours associated with being the boss, but none of the rewards.
We help you build a unique local business that will deliver a great work/life balance and return on investment – and an easy path to retirement when the time comes.
Good Bean Espresso Bar was founded in 2010 by Shane Hepburn.
Built from the ground up with a simple, hands-on approach, by 2011 Good Bean Espresso Bar had won a Mission Australia New Business award, and in 2012 it cracked the Beanhunter list for the top 10 café / espresso bars in Australia.
Over time, more and more people expressed interest in joining the coffee revolution and in the past 12 Months we have spread across 8 locations down the east coast of Australia, all the way down to the coffee mecca itself, Melbourne. Our vision is to break away from the mundane feel of a café, Good Bean should feel like your second home, a brief oasis from your busy day.
Good Bean’s goal is serving the best coffee in Australia – and that’s where you come in. When it comes to our core values, we believe in 3 things:
- QUALITY COFFEE
- EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE
- UNSHAKABLE TEAM CULTURE
Sharing these values involves a commitment to ensuring that every cup of coffee exceeds our customers’ expectations.
As a franchise partner, we rely on you to maintain exceptional quality: if a coffee doesn’t meet your standards it doesn’t get served.
We also rely on you to provide welcoming, personalised service: if you want to stand behind a till in a café and shout customers’ names all day then Good Bean is not for you.
Our aim is to create affordable, profitable businesses that offer a great return through an innovative retail concept within the café industry.
At Good Bean Espresso Bar, coffee is more than just a drink - It’s a way of life.
If you love coffee, are passionate about quality and believe you can provide the best service in town, then a Good Bean Espresso Bar is for you… (welcome to the next generation of cafés)
