Return on Investment 

Once you start the discovery process, you will be provided with the tools to calculate your own earning potential, but with a typical Gross Profit of between 65–75%, the returns are as exciting as the coffee. 

The model is built around the working week - Monday to Friday, with revenue from events and weekend activities bringing in extra income. Whether your personal goals are based around an improved work/life balance or whether they are purely based around increased financial security, the Cafe2U business model could be the perfect fit.

Included in the initial franchise fee of £20,950 (+VAT), every Cafe2U Franchisee receives an exclusive territory license, full training, accelerated launch package, uniform, initial stock and marketing pack. Your Cafe2U van will be available on a finance scheme or can be purchased outright, depending on your capital position. 

The Cafe2U Acceleration Package provides a £275 per day revenue guarantee to ensure early momentum in your business. This enables business owners to reach an initial level of sales that previously took at least three months to achieve. From there, you can build the business to whatever level you desire. 

Exclusive franchise territories 

We have invested in a market-leading territory mapping system. Designed to support a multi-van business, our territories provide the basis for success and are exclusive so you will never compete with another Cafe2U franchisee. With prime territories still available across the UK, your neighbours will be your teammates, not your competition.
