Coffee with Jo

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Jo Wallace, owner of Cafe2U Wangara received a lovely Christmas gesture from one of her customers today. Jo’s customer said his company didn’t do Christmas cards, but he wanted to do something, so he put together the below ….

Coffee With Jo
Every morn we feel so blue
Until Jo arrives from Cafe2U
Always ready with a smile
She’ll serve you a coffee, any style
Flat white, Cappucino or Long Black
There’ll be something to get you on track
You can have a Quiche, doughnut or muffin      
For the measly cost of next to nothing
There are recipes galore
In her mobile coffee store
From Caramel Frappe to Chai tea
She’ll mix up anything for a small fee
A squirt of steam& plenty of frothy milk
Ensures your Latte feels like liquid silk
A full stocked fridge & door to hide from the sun
Means getting your coffee from Jo is always fun
She’s always here come rain, hail or shine
With Jo morning Coffee is always a fun time
Unfortunately it’s come to that time of year
When we swap the morning coffee for a beer
So it’s a rest for us
And a service for the bus
But in two weeks time everything will be like new
Jo will be back, in her little red van emblazoned, Cafe 2U!

Cafe2U Operators show support during fire disaster

Monday, October 28, 2013

 

It was all hands on deck for communities in Western Sydney last week as they faced a desperate fight against raging bushfires. While the wider community pledged support for bushfire victims, local Cafe2U operators were taking up the cause to help their neighbours. 

David and Marina Rowe from Cafe2U Emu Plains were right in the centre of the fires and as they looked on in admiration amongst all the fire fighting taking place, they readily took on the opportunity to offer help where they could.

                                            

 

"We were in the heart of everything that was going on, so it was a dire situation that we witnessed first hand. We offered free coffees to all of the people helping out with the fire fighting initiative, as well as to those who have been directly affected. We also donated  $1 from each coffee to the victims of bushfires and have a collection tin where people can offer donations to the Rural Fire Service and the victims.” 

Local Cafe2U Operator Chris Psathas (Cafe2U Penrith) also echoed these sentiments, “the firefighters are doing such a wonderful job, I just wanted to show my support for the community and do my bit for the bushfire appeal”. 

Chris stationed himself at the Penrith Base Camp for 4 days last week, working around the clock to make coffees for all the fire fighting personnel, stopping only briefly to catch up on a couple of hours sleep in the back of his Cafe2U van. 

Steve Payk of Cafe2U Windsor was also posted at the temporary base camp at UWS Campus in Hawkesbury for the week, serving coffees to all the fire fighters and support staff as they came and went from their shifts. 

 “I am glad I was able to give something back to the fire fighters and support teams who have been working tirelessly through this terrible period.” Steve added.

Find out why Shell from Cafe2U Armadale, WA loves her new job

Friday, March 08, 2013

Shell Wilson started her new Cafe2U franchise in July 2012, and hasn't been happier... we asked her how it was going and this is what told us.


  1. What was it about Cafe2U that appealed to you?
  2. Cafe2U was introduced to me by my husband who had been a customer for years. Through him I knew I would be working with a quality product and a fantastic tasting coffee. When I originally considered the idea, it was both the freedom to make my own decisions and to not be working behind a desk that appealed.>

  3. What did you think about the $500.00 a day income guarantee?
  4. This put my mind at ease with the decision to purchase a Cafe2U franchise. That the company was willing to put a guarantee against the earnings that they were showing me was possible it instilled a great amount of confidence in the brand and team.

  5. What did you think about the fact you would have someone launch the business for you ?
  6. Relieved, starting a business is scary. Am I making the right decision? How am I going to do this? These were questions I faced many times while making my decision. Knowing I would have an experienced Cafe2U representative to assist start the business was a relief.

  7. What was the advantage of having a Franchise Coach to help you start the business (rather than starting on your own?)
  8. Having a Franchise coach for the first two weeks worked well, It allowed me time to focus on making the quality product that I had learned how to make at training, At this stage still being new, there is so much to take in and having the Franchise Coach available to remind me of the small things helped me look towards developing routines to make the business run smoothly.

  9. What sort of ongoing support have you received?
  10. At any stage, If I need assistance I can pick up the phone and know that if I can get an answer straight away that the Cafe2U team will endeavor to find the answer ASAP. I speak to my Franchise Development Manager almost weekly just for a quick touch base and further each quarter a Franchise Development Manager comes out to see me and gives me advice on how they feel I can improve my business. The support of the Cafe2U team really instills confidence and trust in the business model.

  11. What is your favourite thing about being a Cafe2U Franchise Partner?
  12. The smile on your customers face as they greet you by saying COFFEEEEE! It is fun to go out and see your regular customers, and be able to serve them a great tasting coffee that puts a smile on their face every time. Being a Cafe2U Franchisee has changed my life for the better. I love my job and it makes me happy.
