Looking For A Seachange? A Café in Northern NSW Could Be Your Break!
For would-be entrepreneurs, opening a café is an accessible dream. The Australian café industry has experienced excellent growth over the last five years; in January 2018, market research firm IbisWorld reported an annualised 5.1% growth for the industry.
Bolstered by Australia’s love of coffee and a strong economy, it makes it an attractive market. However, the competition in the industry can be high for exactly the same reasons – particularly in the major cities.
It’s why some café owners choose an established franchise such as Muffin Break as an umbrella brand for their enterprise. Operating in Australia since 1989, the iconic Australian brand now has 212 stores across the country.
It’s a credit to their entrenched business systems and the nationally-accredited training programs for their franchisees. Muffin Break is owned by Foodco, one of Australia’s Top 3 Franchises.
Another important consideration for new business owners is location. Sydney and other big cities have become unaffordable for many Australians, making the Northern NSW region attractive not just for its beauty and slower pace of life but for its solid growth and affordability.
Port Macquarie is an area of Northern NSW that is ripe for investment. While it maintains a sense of serenity, its population has grown above the NSW state average over the last five years – and is forecast to continue doing so.
You can understand this growth when you consider the gorgeous sandy beaches and desirable weather. It’s makes it an idyllic retirement and holiday destination.
If you’re interested in a seachange in Port Macquarie, a new Muffin Break opportunity is available in Settlement City , the region’s leading shopping centre. The 70sqm Inline Café has the added boon of street frontage and external seating – sure to catch the eye of the thirsty and hungry passing parade!
About two hours closer to Sydney, the town of Grafton is known for its friendly locals and historic feel, with lovely old buildings lining the leafy streets. It’s a great place for young and established families and acts as a regional centre for local industry. Plus its only a short drive to the stunning beaches of Brooms Head, Yamba and Minnie Waters.
A new Muffin Break bakery café is available in Grafton Shoppingworld , which is the town’s major shopping destination with Big W, Coles, Target and Woolworths. The location is sure to enable a steady stream of foot traffic.
Another Muffin Break Inline Café with a great seating area is opening in Manning Mall, Taree.
Taree is a picturesque town on the Mid North Coast. With white beaches, rainforests and historic buildings, it’s a popular tourist destination, as well as a pit-stop on the long drive from Sydney to Brisbane. It also has strong transport links to major cities, with the North Coast Railway passing through the area.
