Westpac Directory of Franchising


Hudsons has been delivering coffee excellence for over 20 years with cafes across Australia, Singapore and New Zealand. We are seeking passionate franchisees to help us spread our love of coffee nationwide. Training is provided. If you are obsessed about coffee, please contact us.

The opportunity

Hudsons was founded on Melbourne’s famous Elizabeth Street way back in 1998. Since then, it’s grown to over 100 cafés in Australia and Singapore, and now in New Zealand. There is one outlet at Auckland Domestic Airport and two other outlets in Wellington. This internationally renowned franchise has strong backing from the brand owners, Emirates Leisure Retail Australia, and is about to open its first store in the USA and looking to expand into other markets across Asia Pacific and Middle East. 

Being new to New Zealand, it's a great opportunity to join Hudsons family at an early stage and become an integral part of our journey to grow the brand together.  Hudsons outlets have an outstanding level of fit-out, from the décor and furniture to a coffee machine which is top of the range in the industry. 

We share our love for coffee by offering three unique coffee blends with seven milk varieties, providing a choice for every customer. When it comes to food, the emphasis is on freshly-made, healthy and convenient options for customers. 

Franchises are available in high foot traffic key locations throughout New Zealand. Franchisees receive all the marketing expertise, buying power and hospitality sector expertise of the Hudsons brand, with the close-to-hand support of NZ's Wellington-based master franchisee.

Skills and training required

You must be a coffee lover and a people person, that's what matters most. There is no need for prior hospitality experience. We can train you on all you need to know right from store set-up to operational business needs such as procurement, coffee and food preparation, health and safety protocols, staffing and marketing. 

Our in-store training programme allows interactive and real-time learning. This is complemented with e-learning modules, which are regularly updated.

Being a Hudsons franchisee allows you to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself and that's why each franchisee is partnered with a dedicated business coach.

“I feel very supported, which comes down to the relationships that I’ve developed with people at Hudsons Coffee.”
