Adapting during COVID-19

Coffee Deliveries: Find out how we adapted

Written by Clarance Mamombe on Tuesday, 18 April 2020

As a nation, we are facing a truly unprecedented crisis. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, we as a business have had to adapt quickly and support our existing franchisees’ transition into ad hoc trading.

Really Awesome Coffee remains laser-focused on franchisee success. While all our businesses are in uncharted territory, our resilient business model was built to handle moments like this and our relentless commitment to your success is stronger than ever.

During this time, we are supporting our communities across the country through home deliveries to key workers and local community support where we live and work.

We have cancelled all our in-person Discovery Days and turned them into virtual events for the foreseeable future. Our virtual Discovery Days run for approximately 2 hours and give us the opportunity to still engage with potential franchise partners.

Discovery Days are a chance for you to learn more about the Really Awesome Coffee franchise opportunity in a relaxed and informal environment. We will be covering all aspects of the franchise so you will come away with a rich understanding of how we have grown as a brand since our launch in 2010, how our proven system has developed, how a franchisee’s working day is structured, and how much you can expect to earn.


Discovery Day for Northampton Saints

It was our pleasure to host an exclusive discovery day for Northampton Saints players. Career Planning is part of the players development plan to help them identify and seek opportunities for what they would like to do when they retire from playing professional rugby. Several of the players had shown an interest in our mobile café franchise after a player attended our professional barista course earlier in the year.

We had a fun evening, they were great ambassadors for their club and they are all welcome to join our Really Awesome team!

Mike Brings Even More Coffee To Milton Keynes

Mike, our franchise partner in Milton Keynes has recently launched his second van just five months after getting started earlier this year. Working in retail for the majority of his career in various management roles, Mike approached us after deciding he wanted to become his own boss and reap the rewards of his own hard work. More specifically, Mike wanted his own multi-vehicle franchise which we were more than happy to help support him to achieve.

“I worked in retail for years, had a long commute and worked long hours. I finally decided to make the jump into becoming my own boss which has been the best thing I have ever done. I love coffee, the concept and branding of Really Awesome Coffee really stood out to me. After discussing my goals and idea of a multi-vehicle franchise with the team, I felt fully supported and reassured that this was the right franchise for me. I haven’t looked back since.”

Coming from a non-coffee background, Mike went through our Fast-Track Training & Launch Program where he received all of his franchise training including our professional barista course and in-field coaching. He launched his first Really Awesome Coffee franchise van in Milton Keynes at the end of February 2017 after our franchise development team helped plan and build his daily coffee round.

The launch of his first van hit the ground running and got off to a flying start. In just four and half months into his franchise Mike launched his second coffee van in Milton Keynes which again has been a flying success receiving great feedback from his new customers.

“It’s no secret I’ve been working hard, I am used to working with people but the Really Awesome Coffee team have been instrumental in my success and helped me build my rounds on both vehicles. The information has been invaluable and the support team are fantastic.”

Mike has consistently surpassed every target since his launch and is on track to smash his first year’s goals in record time. He is also planning for a third van to be launched later this year with more to follow in 2018 with his continued rapid expansion.

This recent news means running your own successful mobile coffee van is now more accessible than ever before. If you are interested in exploring more then please call us on 0800 043 0271 or email
