Zarraffa’s Coffee Opens Drive-through Location in Mt Gravatt

Zarraffa’s Coffee has opened its Mt Gravatt drive-through store on Logan Road, as the brand continues its expansion efforts in Queensland. 

Australian-owned specialty coffee franchisor, Zarraffa’s Coffee, opened its latest drive-through location in Mt Gravatt. Taking over the space at 3/1329-1339 Logan Road, the store owned by franchisees Melissa Sanagan and Lachlan Sherrington was launched in late September 2022.

Melissa and Lachlan opened their first Zarraffa’s Coffee franchise in 2019 in Tweed Heads South, NSW. Three years later, the couple decided that the time to explore Mt Gravatt for expansion opportunities was ripe.

“Opening the Mount Gravatt location is another chapter in our journey with Zarraffa’s. We’re looking forward to serving the local community handcrafted coffee for years to come.”

Melissa added that with their years of experience owning the South Tweed franchise, they “were really pumped to hit the ground running and deliver on the overarching Zarraffa’s experience.”

“It’s really exciting to be able to open our second store and set our standards early,” she said. 

“We’ve been forming our team for the past few months, employing over 30 locals. We believe when our staff are well trained, happy and confident, we can deliver the best possible service for our customers. My teaching experience has really helped build our team’s skills and knowledge. We thrive on having a fantastic culture in our stores.”

The latest drive-through store expansion is part of Zarraffa’s Coffee’s current expansion plans for its 25-year-old specialty coffee company. The company’s CEO, Marnie Sheldon said it’s hugely rewarding to see Melissa and Lachlan take the next step by becoming a multi-site owners within the brand.

“Growing our footprint can only happen with the great operators. Mel and Lachlan have established a thriving local business in South Tweed and now get to enjoy the next phase in their franchising journey with two bustling drive thru locations,” she said.

“As we head into this next phase of store footprint expansion, we are looking for the right operators to join our team and grow beyond our traditional areas. With major expansion planning across Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia, there is plenty of opportunity for commercial growth.”

Zarraffa’s Coffee was established in 1996 by Kenton and Rachel Campbell. Fully Australian-owned and operated, the company has its head office and roastery based in Eagleby.

Originally operating as a roasting house on Southport in Gold Coast, Zarraffa’s Coffee grew into an award-winning enterprise with over 70 locations across Queensland, Western Australia and New South Wales. The Company’s drive-through concept was conceived in 2009 which offered a quality coffee experience paired with added convenience.
