the opportunity

Have you ever felt excited at the thought of owning your own business or ever felt that it would be fabulous to run your own café? Well, it’s those same feelings that have prompted many of our most successful Jamaica Blue franchise partners to chat with us about investing in a Jamaica Blue café. At Jamaica Blue our passion revolves around the joy of connecting with people, our beautiful fresh food, our well-designed cafés and the consistently perfect coffee, all of which serve a higher purpose; they are the means through which we make people’s days a little bit brighter.

celebrating 20 years

The Jamaica Blue brand is owned and operated by The Foodco Group, one of Australasia’s most successful and experienced retail franchise companies. Jamaica Blue celebrates 20 years of delivering fine coffee to New Zealanders this year, with our first store having opened in Wellington back in 1998. Our brand has been built on two simple beliefs: a belief in sourcing, roasting and preparing fine coffee; and a belief in using only fresh, locally-sourced ingredients to create fabulous food. Having this guiding philosophy has allowed us to be flexible and creative with different café formats, from fully licensed café restaurants to kiosks and espresso bars, each specifically designed to suit the location. You will find thriving Jamaica Blue businesses in residential areas, commercial towers, transport hubs, shopping malls, airports, hospitals, universities and high streets.

do you have what it takes?

If you are contemplating becoming a Jamaica Blue franchise partner, you don’t need a PHD in business or economics and you don’t need to be a celebrity chef as we will teach you everything you need to know. You will, however, need to be passionate and ambitious about succeeding in your business. Good communication skills are also important as you will need to motivate your team of staff. Our structured systems and training programs, backed up with the continued support of the Foodco Operations and Marketing teams will assist you in every aspect of setting up and running your own Jamaica Blue café.

where to next?

We currently have a select number of exciting Jamaica Blue opportunities throughout New Zealand, including Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Christchurch and Queenstown. Our new sites are selected very carefully and only after considerable research and strong lease negotiations by our experienced development team, all the time keeping our future franchisees at the forefront of our minds; after all, your success is our success so it’s very much a partnership right from the outset.

If the things that we are passionate about at Jamaica Blue – excellent coffee, excellent food and excellent customer service – are also the things that you’re passionate about, then we would love to meet with you and introduce you to the Jamaica Blue opportunity that is right for you.
