Meet some of the Australian food franchises taking on the global retail market
Brumby’s is one of Australia’s most iconic bakeries. With a history of baking fresh bread every day since 1975, it has fostered a loyal legion of customers who buy more than 10.5 million loaves each year, and has more than 250 stores across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
Brumby’s has firmly cemented its position as one of Australia’s most trusted and loved brands, specialising in freshly baked bread and bakery goods, including artisan loaves, cakes, tarts and slices, savouries, pastries, gourmet pies and sandwiches.
In 2013, Brumby’s underwent a significant brand transformation, which has seen it evolve to represent the essence of ‘home-growngoodness’ in a modern and appealing aesthetic, with a new store design, logo and uniform. The product range has also been extended to include functional health breads, large cakes, and quality coffee.
The brand proudly handcrafts freshly baked bread the traditional way, using high quality sourced ingredients, glorious harvests of naturally cultivated grains and baking techniques that have been refined over the generations.
Brumby’s Bakery is passionate about bread and is dedicated to upholding ethical and sustainable practices, especially with food waste, which is why the brand shares its surplus with those less fortunate by supporting soup kitchens, homeless shelters and other charity organisations.
Through expert training and ongoing support, and regular new product development, Brumby’s Bakery franchisees invest time in perfecting their daily products, giving each loaf, savoury twist and sweet treat the attention it deserves to be truly delicious.
Michel’s Patisserie is Australia’s largest patisserie chain with more than 250 locations across Australia and Indonesia. The brand aims to amplify the special moments by creating and delivering quality cakes, coffees and savoury treats that elevate the occasion and make every moment in life, no matter how big or small, feel extra special.
Michel’s Patisserie houses Michel’s Espresso; a bespoke coffee blend crafted under the expert guidance of an internationally accredited Master Roaster. Michel’s Espresso is an award-winning blend and its promise of expertise, coupled with some of the top baristas in the country, ensures the perfect cup every time.
By sourcing beans of exceptional quality and roasting them to the highest standards, Michel’s Patisserie crafts its own blend. This dedication to coffee excellence has seen the brand awarded the prestigious Australian Roy Morgan Coffee Shop of the Year Award for four consecutive years, from 2011 to 2014.
Recently, Michel’s Patisserie has evolved and extended to include its larger café model. Michel’s Patisserie & Café holds true to the Michel’s Patisserie philosophy whilst providing its customers with an extended product offering. This model enables a larger footprint and includes a kitchen cooked café menu, with breakfasts and light meals.
Now selling more than 16 million coffees and one million cakes per year in Australia alone, it is quality and evolution that has made Michel’s Patisserie a success for more than 30 years and why it remains the largest patisserie chain in Australia.
Brightly coloured iced doughnuts; the squishy, creamy delights of cream and jam donuts; experiencing the magic of warm cinnamon doughnuts being created, bouncing along that mini conveyor belt and landing in a delicious carousel of cinnamon and sugar, ready to be eaten. This is the heart of Donut King.
Donut King stores are well known for offering a fun environment to customers who can relax and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and delicious treats. Quality and service are the driving forces behind Donut King. The brand’s high quality products, excellence in customer service, uncompromising cleanliness and compliance to its system have been vital to the success of Donut King outlets in every market around the world.
The first Donut King store opened in Sydney, Australia in 1981 and progressed from a rudimentary franchise system to one of the most recognised and successful franchise systems in Australia. This has since evolved into a network of more than 300 stores throughout Australia, New Zealand, China, Papua New Guinea and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Donut King’s mission is to bring a moment of happiness to the world, for young and old. In 35 years of operation, the brand’s product offer has continued to evolve to meet consumer demands and drive profits for its franchisees and Master Franchise Partners.
Donut King also features a signature espresso coffee ‘Royal Bean’ and sells other food and drink items, including signature Quakeshakes, soft-serve ice cream and hot dogs, not to mention freshly cooked cinnamon doughnuts.
Behind the ‘fun’ of Donut King is a hard working team of professionals who are continually developing the brand, creating innovative products or new flavours to delight the ever-increasing loyal consumer base and keeping the joy and magic of Donut King alive and relevant in today’s demanding marketplace.
