Cafe2U Franchise

Cafe2U franchise advert

Established in Australia in 2000, Café2U is proud to be the pioneer of the mobile café franchise.

Launched in the UK in 2004, Cafe2U has grown to become the largest mobile coffee franchise in the country with over 85 franchisees.

We provide top-quality coffee, hot chocolate and hot and cold food directly to our customers wherever they are, be it at their office or at private and corporate events.

Cafe2U is a multi-award winner in the national awards conducted by the Beverage Standards Association (BSA), and this is down to the ongoing success of the people who join Cafe2U, the training we provide, and the fantastic products we use.  We would love to continue this success with the further recruitment of Cafe2U franchise owners across the UK.

The Cafe2U franchise model

Cafe2U franchise owners are successfully running their own mobile coffee business using Cafe2U’s mobile coffee franchise system without the hassles of landlords, staff or rent.

Our model is based around a 5 day working week, with franchisees enjoying the freedom to work to a schedule that suits them, and so attending events and functions at the weekend offers additional earning potential.

A Cafe2U Franchise Partner receives an exclusive territory license, full training program, accelerated launch package and marketing pack. Your Cafe2U van will be available on a lease scheme or can be purchased outright, depending on your capital position.

The renowned Cafe2U ‘Acceleration Package’ provides a £275 per day revenue guarantee to ensure early momentum in your business. And so, whilst most of our franchise partners do successfully run just one van in one territory, our ‘Acceleration Package’ enables business owners to reach an initial level of sales that previously took at least three months to achieve from which you can build on to whatever level you desire; from single unit operator to a multi-unit franchisee.

The cost of a Cafe2U franchise

You will be provided with the tools to calculate your own earnings potential, but with a typical Gross Profit of between 65 – 75%, from an initial franchise fee investment of £20,950+VAT, the potential returns are as exciting as the coffee!

How we train and support you

Each Cafe2U Franchise Partner receives a comprehensive 4 week training package, at the Cafe2U Academy in Yorkshire, which we have named the Acceleration Package. Why? Because we have proved that this training and launch program propels a new franchise partners revenue and skill sets to a level that previously took at least three months to achieve.

  • 1 week of classroom training
  • 1 week Franchise Partner (in territory) pre-work conducted under supervision of the Franchise Development Manager
  • 2 weeks in territory launch program with a Franchise Partner Development Manager to fast track the development of the business, find customers, and help you please them!
  • Franchise Partner Revenue Guarantee of £275 per day!

Franchisee Case Studies

Cafe2U Franchisee

Cafe2U the obvious choice for a hospitality manager

Alan Fulton

With financial support from family, Alan Fulton was able to get back in control of his work life and set up his Cafe2U franchise in Aberdeen South in August 2014. When he decided to start looking for a business Alan was no stranger to franchising as his father had bought a Chips Away franchise previously. However, he was looking for a beverage based franchise so he could utilise his previous experience but without the unsociable hours, therefore, Cafe2U seemed the perfect option for him.



Cafe2u sets out 2020 vision

2019 marked an important year for Cafe2U. Not only were we officially recognised as the UK’s number one mobile coffee franchise, we were also listed in the country’s top 20 franchises overall. However, 2020 is set to take things to a whole new level.
