      How it works

      In response to the common question: "how do I get started?", Cafe2U has developed the Acceleration Package to help you make the most of your coffee franchise opportunities.

      Already successful in launching over 100 franchises around Australia, the Acceleration Package provides new Franchise Partners with:

      An income guarantee for the first two weeks of business.
      A Franchise Development Manager (FDM) – a personal coach and mentor to help you get up and running and build your business for you.
      After 2 weeks of training (1 week in the classroom and 1 pre-work), your FDM will spend a further 2 weeks working with you in your territory to show you the steps to build a sustainable business, right from the moment you climb into your Cafe2U mobile coffee van.

      “I will always have the memory of my first day solo & having the best fun ever! My kids say I’m partner has noticed the difference.....and above all....I love my job!” Jack Richardson, Cafe2U Erskine Park, NSW

      The Acceleration Package means that Cafe2U Franchise Partners benefit from the rewards of business ownership and capitalise on franchise opportunities sooner.
