San Churro leads the revitalisation of Frankston

Australian Franchise News – 27-02-14


Top chocolate franchise group San Churro is leading the charge of Melbourne-based companies who are opening up for business in Frankston, setting their sights on a lucrative location in Bayside’s entertainment precinct.

Traditionally known as a gateway to Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, Frankston is on the cusp of an economic boom, which has the potential to position the city as Melbourne’s premier investment location.

The forecasted growth comes off the back of investment from both the public and private sector, led by the $730M development of the Peninsula Link freeway and the announcement of a $114M upgrade to Frankston’s railways, which has opened up access to the city.

Major upgrades to hospitals and universities, plans to build offices and apartment complexes, and the development of a $50M aquatic centre are expected to bring more than 2,000 new jobs to the region according to Frankston City Council.

San Churro founder Giro Maurici comments: “We’re looking forward to opening a chocolateria in Frankston’s flourishing retail precinct and are incredibly excited about Frankston’s potential to become not just a great place to do business but also a real destination for visitors.

“We’re selective about where we position San Churro outlets – rather than aiming to be on every street corner we’re looking for premium locations that offer our franchisees excellent return on their investment and Frankston ticks all the right boxes,” Mr Maurici said.

According to Frankston City Council, between 2003 and 2012, median house prices increased from less than $250,000 to almost $400,000 and in 2013 building approvals went up 162% on the previous year.

Frankston City Council adds that they are committed to supporting local businesses, injecting money into the local economy and attracting more white collar jobs to Frankston so that we have a city where you can live, work and play close to home.
