Trying to decide what to do with my life now that I have reached the ripe old age of 50.
I wanted to finally make the change I have always dreamt about, no more working for someone else, to be in charge of my own destiny, to make my own decisions and best of all enjoy the rewards.
I started to look at many different business opportunities, but kept hitting a dead end, until I came across Espresso To Go, I had spoken to other mobile coffee franchises, but what interested me the most when I made enquiries with Espresso To Go was their focus on the product, the coffee was their main thing. The others only talked about the bells and whistles, the fancy this and that, which I think they are all pretty similar.
Their focus on the quality of the coffee provided to the customers was what made me decide to go with Espresso To Go, they seemed to me to be just as interested in the customer as I would be.
With all other boxes ticked and the potential to earn a much better income it was an easy decision to go ahead with Espresso To Go.
For anyone interested in an Espresso to Go franchise:- I have been a franchisee for just on TEN years now and it has been the best decision I have ever made. The Franchise has worked exactly how Espresso To Go explained it would. Work Life balance has transformed my family life. Very professional company with fantastic support.
I am writing this testimonial to not just explain how good a business this Franchise is, excellent income, great hours, extremely fulfilling occupation, all my customers are now good friends and I really do enjoy going to work, never thought I would hear myself say that.
I am writing this email because I have a very serious health issue, where in fact I actually died in hospital a number of weeks ago.
As you can read I made it but I now find it difficult to operate my business to its full extent. The franchisor has been aware of my condition and has offered at no cost to me to take over and run my business completely, leaving me to concentrate all my efforts on getting well.
This offer from the franchisor has lifted an enormous weight from my shoulders, over the past few months I have been worried sick about the business and now thanks to head office I can focus on my health, I have more time in hospital over the next few weeks and with excellent care I hope to be running my business again later in the year.
I want everyone to know what a wonderful franchise Espresso To Go Mobile Café is and how grateful I am they are looking after one of their own.
Having had an Espresso to go franchise for the past 5 years, I have been very proud to have established the name of Espresso to go mobile cafe in the Port Stephens area. I have a loyal bunch of customers who love the coffee and products that we provide for them.
We have had so many comments on how professional we look with our uniforms and the van set up, especially when we attend functions and festivals.
As for Espresso to go head office, I can’t express how much support that has been given to us over the years and always on such a professional level.
Anne & I would just like to thank yourself, Michelle and your team for giving us this opportunity.
After almost 25 years of employment in a senior position for a multinational Quick Service restaurant, working nights, weekends and holidays, I was looking for a lifestyle that would meet the needs and commitments of a young family.
Espresso To Go mobile coffee franchise was the ideal business to meet these needs through lifestyle, hours and income.
The support from Espresso To Go is outstanding.
The systems, training and technology ensure operations are straight forward and efficient.
From day one our business was making a profit and continues to grow.
My wife and I are extremely pleased we chose Espresso To Go and highly recommend this franchise to anyone who would like to run their own business, that is both financially and personally rewarding.
We couldn’t be happier with our Espresso to Go mobile coffee business. Since purchasing the business four years ago, my husband and I have achieved a balance between work, income and lifestyle, that we could only have dreamed of.
With two young children, we were seeking a business that would not only offer a high level of income but would provide the opportunity for us to work together and give us the flexibility to be available for our kids. Many other business opportunities that we explored before purchasing Espresso to Go, demanded long hours including evening and weekend work.
We have found the training, support and backup provided by Espresso to Go, second to none. They have followed through and delivered on every promise they made. Their commitment to us and to the success of our business, has given us a level of confidence that very few new business owners can enjoy.
Having never owned our own business before, we were comforted by the “tried and tested” systems and procedures Espresso to Go have in place and the “Support To Success” ensured that we were making money before our training had finished.
We would happily recommend Espresso to Go to anyone who is looking to secure their future with a proven business concept.
Espresso to Go is easy to operate, we’re making great money and most of all we’re having fun.
We were finding our retirement quite boring so we started looking for an easy business that we could run together and wasn’t too physically demanding. Espresso To Go mobile coffee was an easy decision for us.
We’re in our 60s and our Espresso To Go mobile coffee business allows us to work just six hours a day and provides us with cash income.
We’re a husband and wife team and we really enjoy working together and get a buzz out of chatting to our customers every day.
Espresso To Go’s training was excellent and they spent lots of time with us in our run to build up our customer base and to make sure everything was running smoothly.
The “Support To Success” made us feel comfortable with our new venture because we knew we’d make money before our training finished, they don’t leave until you are making a profit. It gave us the perfect start and we haven’t looked back.
We’d happily recommend this business to any potential franchisees.
I have worked for the owner of this van for over a year now and enjoy the job immensely,so much so my goal is to buy my own franchise as soon as possible. Its been good to be able to experience the business first hand to see exactly whats involved, how much the customers enjoy the coffee and the service without any risk.
The support from the Franchisor has been amazing and has made the difference between a good business and a great business. If you want to get into the mobile cafe business go with Espresso To Go they have been fantastic.
Alex and Joan Makrikostas are our latest franchisee’s in Victoria in the city of Frankston south of Melbourne. Alex started his new business a month ago and after extensive 9 day class room training and 4 weeks live on the job training with his franchise development manager is now running solo for the first time.
Just a note to let you know that today I did a special booking for a Father’s Day Breakfast event by St Ambrose’s Catholic Primary School at Newmarket. I obtained this booking as a result of an enquiry to Espresso To Go Head Office. St Ambrose’s has also booked me again for next year.
During this morning’s breakfast, I managed to make 130 cups between 7.30am and 8.45am. I was very pleased with my effort and the feedback I received from several parents as to my speed and the quality of the coffee. One elderly gentleman came to me at the end of the event, shook my hand and said he wished to congratulate me for the effort I had put in during such a short period. He runs a donut stand at several big school events and is well aware of how trying such events are.
Please pass on my thanks to Jenny because I doubt I would have been able to cope with the high numbers of coffees at this early stage in my business without her wonderful and extensive training.
New Franchisee Craig Crouch had this to say after one month in his new business ” Running my own business as a courier for 12 years I needed a change. I was keeping an eye on the mobile coffee van franchise’s for the last couple of years and decided this was the direction I wanted to head down.
After months of investigation work, I decided against going out on my own and starting from scratch. There was more involved then I thought.
Espresso To Go Mobile Cafe offers excellent business product along with great training and after sales support. From my very first phone converstation, to handover of the professional fit out of the Hyundai I load, the franchisor was just a phone call away. If there was a problem it was fixed straight away.
I am enjoying the change immensely, earning a good income and working half the hours from my previous business. With the occasional event or function on the weekends. I’m glad I have chosen Espresso To Go Mobile Cafe for my next business venture and would strongly recommend this to other business men and women.
Phillip Schultz Qld Manager for Dunlop Tyres has finally realised his dream of being self employed by joining the Espresso To Go Moble Cafe franchise group. ‘I am a proactive enthusiastic person and I would like to use those skills to run my own business”. Phillip reached sales of 102 cups on his 14th day in the field and said ” There are two other coffee vans in the area and they have been there a long time, a lot of my new customer have said they are much happier with the quailty of my coffee and have found that to be the secret to getting new business. The support and training from Espresso has made running my new business much easier than I thought it would be.
” I been in the grocery business for a number of years, and with two small boys the time needed at the business became to much, after speaking with friends regarding a change one of them mentioned the mobile coffee business.
I did a lot of research and looked at franchise’s in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and of course Perth. After spending months comparing the coffee vans and taking numerous plans to my accountant he and I agreed Espresso To Go Mobile Cafe was by far the best business model and I was able to speak to their other WA franchisee’s and a number of Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne operators as well. I am still new to the mobile coffee business but so far it has been first class, 9 days class room training completed and ready to begin live training with my trainer Jenny today.
