The Coffee Club New Zealand opened its second store in Queenstown this week. Located close to Queenstown Events Centre and just a few minutes from the airport, the launch means that both locals and visitors will have more food and drink options.
“We’re very excited to be opening another The Coffee Club in Queenstown,” said Andy Lucas, co-director of The Coffee Club New Zealand. “We already have a location in Remarkables Park, which has exceeded expectations – it’s a really popular, buzzy spot. The Queenstown Central café is a lovely space and the perfect place to catch up with friends and family, whether it is for a quick caffeine fix or a delicious brunch or dinner.”
New owners Megan Coombes and Mark Noonan are originally from Australia and started visiting Queenstown 16 years ago. They have always dreamed of opening a business in the area and look forward to welcoming food and coffee lovers into the café.
“It was during a ski trip that we fell in love with the mountains and lakes and decided we were going to live here one day,” said Coombes. “We have always been excited by new challenges and decided to buy a business in Wanaka three years ago. It was finally time to move our young family across the ditch to embrace this wonderful lifestyle. When the opportunity to get involved with The Coffee Club came up, we knew we had to jump on it. One of our favourite things over the years, having lived quite remotely, has been driving into town for a coffee and an eggs benny. We can’t wait to welcome people to The Coffee Club, whether it’s for a quiet, relaxing cup of coffee alone or for a fun-filled lunch with their friends and family.”
