The Coffee Club has opened its latest location in the heart of Tauranga, the chain’s 63 location in New Zealand, where it wants to help local businesses by offering a dedicated meeting room to those who want some fresh thinking away from the office.

“Lots of Kiwis do business over a coffee, so we wanted to make a space where people can get out of the office and enjoy a fresh environment,” said owner/operator Kalena-Lee Hovelle. “We have a dedicated meeting room, with a screen for any presentations. Of course, there is the added benefit of having easy access to quality food and coffee.”

As well as offering a space for professionals to get together, Hovelle says her team will bring top-quality hospitality to the area. “I have over a decade of hospitality experience, and I’m a real people person. I am very passionate about it and we’re taking a lot of care to get the right staff who feel the same way, I’m really excited to see this place open.”

Tauranga continues to be a city on the rise. “We’ve had a lot of success here,” said Brad Jacobs, director of The Coffee Club. “We already have a couple of other spots in the city, which are really popular, and some of the best performing cafes out of all our locations. For us, being in the centre of Tauranga is a nice step forward. It’s already a location with a good vibe, and I think we’ll add to that.”
