Jamaica Blue Franchise

Jamaica Blue Coffee Shop Store Front

Jamaica Blue has been built on two simple beliefs that have guided us in everything that we’ve done: a belief in sourcing the very best coffee and a belief in using only fresh, premium ingredients to deliver contemporary café dishes with a twist.

Jamaica Blue derives its’ name from the majestic Blue Mountains of Jamaica, one of the best coffee producing regions in the world and home to our exclusive Wallenford Estate® Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee.

Our simple philosophy of great coffee and food, together with our passionate crew of chefs, baristas and service team are the Jamaica Blue recipe for continued success. From our humble beginnings over 20 years ago, we now have a growing international network of over 170 stores operating in 7 countries; 7 in the UK including Cambridge, Chelmsford, Rushden Lakes, Royal Berkshire Hospital, Next Birmingham, Eastbourne and Telford.

We are looking for franchisees to develop the brand throughout the UK. So, if you have ever pictured yourself running your own café, a Jamaica Blue franchise could be for you.

Where we are looking to open

  • Shopping centres (covered malls preferred)
  • Airports - In-store concessions
  • Hospitals
