Australia’s largest and fastest growing drive-thru coffee franchise business Muzz Buzz, is celebrating 10 years of franchising growth and success.
Since Australian-owned and operated Muzz Buzz became a franchising business in Perth in 2004, the drive thru coffee concept has taken off in Australia and the distinctive purple and green Muzz Buzz logo and equally distinctive and convex-shaped buildings have become one of the most recognisable and engaging lifestyle brands in Australian retailing.
Muzz Buzz Limited Managing Director Mr. Steven Pynt said “The Muzz Buzz brand is built on values of fun, convenience and entertainment and a great blend of quality food and beverage products and great customer service. Over the past decade thousands of Australian’s have embraced the Muzz Buzz brand and this is entirely due to the quality of our Franchisor team members, and the service offered by our franchisees and their motivated and enthusiastic employees.”
Since acquiring the Muzz Buzz brand in 2004, the company has grown from one store to 55 stores operating across WA, VIC, SA, QLD and New Zealand and is expecting to have almost 60 stores operating in Australasia by the end of 2014.
Earlier this month Muzz Buzz announced it has signed a Master Franchise Agreement for the United Kingdom which will see Muzz Buzz drive-thru stores operating throughout the UK and warehousing, distribution and manufacturing support facilities in the UK to support its store operations and local franchisees.
The Company has plans to expand its products and drive-thru services into Europe, North America and Asia, and continued growth in New Zealand, where there are currently two Muzz Buzz franchises in operation and another store in development.
Mr. Pynt added, “The growth of the Muzz Buzz brand internationally is our focus in the decade ahead and we are excited by the opportunities that will bring. In recognising our achievements over the past 10 years, I’d like to acknowledge the enormous contribution of Executive Chairman Warren Reynolds, our dedicated and loyal corporate office staff and the many thousands of Muzz Buzz franchisees, store managers and staff who bring our brand values to life every day, and for our loyal customers who allow us to put a buzz in their day.”
