The Crema Espresso story began in 2005 on the iconic Tedder Ave, in Main Beach.
The store, its coffee and its service quickly gained popularity with customers across the coast.
The brand began franchising in 2007 and now has franchises spread across the Gold Coast and is currently expanding into other regions.
Crema Espresso is currently located at Australia Fair, Broadbeach, Harbour Town, Main Beach, Pacific Fair, Q1, Robina Town Centre, Westfield Helensvale and Westfield Carindale. Each store is unique and has different customer and business needs. This truly reinforces that a Crema Espresso store, whilst a franchise, is an independently owned and run business.
As with any franchise, Crema’s franchisees are the heart of the operation. They are the face of the brand and work on the front line of the business.
Crema Espresso offers its customers premium coffee, fresh, light meals and excellent customer service. Crema has reinvigorated the coffee store concept, presenting stores that have a bright, sophisticated atmosphere, an alternative to the traditional coffee house/café that has become tired with its dark décor and predictable food menu.
Employing the services of a master roaster the Crema team tested and compared blends from around the world. From this the perfect balance and flavour combination became the Crema Signature blend. The Crema Signature blend quickly became a favourite with coffee drinkers.
The blend has consistently medalled in the CSR Golden Bean Competition and really reinforces the company slogan it’s all about the coffee.
The food menu offered in store has been based around customer demand, people want fresh meals that they can eat while catching up with friends and family. The result is a simple yet sophisticated menu that is certain to have something for everyone.
