Nowadays, sipping — and spilling — tea is all the rage thanks to the advice of health gurus and of course Kermit the frog, however, coffee still remains the king of hot and cold beverages. If there was ever a business that was Recession-proof, it’s the coffee industry.
Business Insider reports that coffee exportation alone is an impressive $20 billion dollar industry across the globe. Similarly, Business Insider also reported that the coffee industry itself is worth a staggering $100 billion U.S. dollars worldwide. While quite large, these figures should come as no surprise, considering there are an estimated 14 billion espresso coffees consumed each year across the world. Furthermore, nearly 500 billion cups of coffee are enjoyed each year worldwide.
As such, mobile coffee franchises have become widely popular in developed countries such as the United States and Australia, where the coffee industry is worth an estimated $5 billion in revenue. That’s right, mobile coffee franchises are becoming a thing and a very popular one at that.
Mobile coffee franchises provide the best of both worlds. They’re one of the best small business franchise opportunities for those looking to break away from the daily 9-5 grind yet those who work the daily 9-5 grind can get one of the best cups of coffee they’ve had from these popular establishments. The mobile cafe business and the corporate world are intricately linked, as professionals typically rely on their daily cup — or cups — of joe to get them through their day.
As such, mobile cafes such as coffee vans and kiosks have taken the coffee industry over by storm as they continue to supply coffee, beverages, and light fare to fuel some of the world’s largest corporations. In addition, they are an excellent way to add finishing touch to corporate event or extracurricular function.
