UK-based company operating in the hot and cold drinks vending marketplace
Food & Drink, Coffee, Vending
Café Lavista is a UK based company operating in the well established hot and cold drinks vending marketplace. A fairly new franchisor, Café Lavista has remastered the ‘drinks to go’ franchise market with a model that allows customers to enjoy barista quality coffees from a Piccola machine, which creates a range of fresh coffees from bean to cup. The powerful drinks station can produce 100 plus speciality hot and cold drinks per day, appealing to a large market of coffee drinkers.
Café Lavista currently has a number of franchise opportunities available. The company’s franchise team is looking for individuals to get involved as a business investment partner franchise, direct partner or site partner.
Café Lavista partners operate a large, exclusive geographical region in which well engineered coffee vending machines serve their own brand coffee. Business investment partners invest in coffee machines that are sited and maintained by Café Lavista. Machines are installed into site partner outlets, utilising their prime locations and existing customer footfall to begin generating sales from day one. They receive an income from the cup sales of each machine.
Café Lavista manages the maintenance, cleaning, stock replenishment, legal and financial side of the business, as well as the ongoing relationship with site partners. Additionally, the company takes care of all branding and pays franchisees a generous revenue share on a monthly basis, directly into their bank accounts.
A business investment partner franchise is designed for individuals looking for a fully managed business investment, which offers the potential for high returns with minimal effort.
In addition, the company is looking for regional development partners to develop and manage a network of introducers, ideally accountants and independent financial advisers. These people introduce franchisees to clients who are interested in investing in a business investment partner franchise. Café Lavista regional development partners generate income from a number of different income streams.
Franchise opportunities are available across the UK. The company’s Piccola coffee machines have been specifically designed to fit into small retail spaces, so they can fit anywhere, with both plumbed and unplumbed options making them easy to site and set up.
With Café Lavista, there are no premises, staff, stock or vehicle required, plus there is no selling or major time investment necessary, as the product literally sells itself. Another benefit of this franchise is that you can expand at your own pace as a franchisee, adding more coffee machines as and when in order to increase profits.
In terms of the burgeoning UK coffee market, this continues to expand, with UK consumers currently spending an estimated £8.9 billion every year on coffee - 37 per cent of which is sold from unattended drinks machines.
Café Lavista describes itself as the ‘Uber’ of coffee, as it is pioneering a new way that coffee vending franchises work. Because the maintenance of the machines is carried out by a contracted team of site partner franchisees, there are none of the usual employer’s HR staff issues to worry about.
The fast growth of the franchise industry and that of the coffee market make this a good opportunity for profits without too much risk. Live monitoring of the machine’s income via Café Lavista’s web app means franchisees can see exactly how much coffee is being bought, where and when, making it easy to keep track of and forecast profits each year.
The Café Lavista head office is in Penarth, near Cardiff.
Café Lavista franchisees receive full training ahead of starting up their franchise and the head office team is always available to give support when needed, helping franchisees get the most from their coffee to go business and providing marketing and operational support when required.
The initial franchise agreement lasts for 10 years. This can be sold on earlier than the agreed term or extended beyond 10 years at no extra charge.
According to the British Coffee Association, people living in the UK drink 95 million cups of coffee per day. More coffee is drunk outside the home than in and the appeal of coffee has become more widespread in recent years.
Now a daily part of many consumers’ lives, that coffee ‘spike’ in the morning means any coffee franchise is a good investment - particularly one with low overheads and no staff costs.
Recent research by IBISWorld shows that the UK branded coffee market is expected to grow at a six per cent compound annual growth rate by 2021, with sales forecast to grow by 12 per cent and to exceed £6.5 billion. Viable business locations have become easier to access in recent years due to the availability of more high street space as the retail sector struggles and less successful businesses close.
