Amateur Kiwi coffee roasters, coffee-making baristas, and budding food and beverage business operators are being given the opportunity to buy into a fast-growing café brand with plans to become a national entity.

Christchurch-based Black & White Coffee Cartel opened its first outlet in the city five years ago, and since then has expanded throughout the city to now have 12 locations.

The eclectic café brand – whose franchisees roast their own beans on-site – is part-owned by former All Black captain Reuben Thorne who wore the silver fern 50 times during a test career which spanned from 1999 – 2007.

Now with all its operations and systems fine-tuned, Black & White Coffee Cartel is looking for new operators throughout the country from Whangarei to Invercargill. The opportunities for new franchisees to become part of the Black & White Coffee Cartel network are being offered for sale through Bayleys Auckland.

Black & White Coffee Cartel’s management have said it has a preference for appointing franchisees who shared their own passion and commitment for making and serving quality coffee in a funky/grungy environment. “In that respect, the opportunity to join an already proven brand is the perfect next step for amateur Kiwi coffee roasters, baristas and budding food and beverage business operators,” said Markus Blum, one of the business brokers with Bayleys Auckland.

Black & White Coffee Cartel utilises its own Cartel Boss blend, a combination of the sweet and nutty Brazilian Cerrado bean and the slightly acidic and cocao tinged La Flor bean from Honduras.

Black & White Coffee Cartel represents the next generation of coffee chains in New Zealand.
