About Coffee Planet
Franchise

Next-level café experience

Coffee Planet is a next-level café experience – a fusion of the World’s finest 100% Arabica specialty coffees and the rich theme and heritage of the Arabian Peninsula. Our premium-grade coffees are a taste experience like no other – rich aromas, complex taste profiles and a soothing finish. We source the World’s finest coffee beans direct from farmers in over 20 countries and roast them to perfection in our roastery in the UAE. We are the largest coffee roaster in the Middle East – doubling our capacity in 2019 with investment to our process – and now capable of producing 200 tons of specialty coffee per month. Our cafes mirror our origins – warm, with golden hues – reflecting the smooth, sandy landscape that gave birth to coffee roasting some 500 years ago. Proud of our homeland, our café designs showcase regional landmarks and tell our guests of our history and mission statement.

The investment

Our franchise options are

  1. Master agreements, with a territorial exclusivity, a development schedule and the right to sub franchise, subject to our approvals

  2. Single-site licences – enabling a steady and measured growth plan

Our range of investment starts at as little as £50,000 for a fully kitted-out cart model, ready to pour its first coffee and warm its first croissant. A 1,200 sq ft café will cost approximately £180,000 to fit out and will have that first smoothie blended in a jiffy. A kiosk operation is somewhere in the middle at around £80,000, with a few tables and chairs thrown in. These are approximations – and dependent on your labour and materials costs. Our design manuals provide you with all the themes, palettes and materials – so you will never wander off the brand path.

Territories and returns

Coffee shops cater to communities – and we are no different in seeking out such locations – be that High Street, shopping centres, sports venues, offices, transport hubs, hospitals or large-scale events. We welcome you to seek out suitable suggestions early in your Coffee Planet journey – even before you’ve signed a deal with us. We can help you in your landlord negotiations and guide you on the commercials, if needed. It’s what we do. Our modelling tells us the right café investment should be clawed back in around 2 years, with a kiosk looking to pay back in 8 months. Again – these are our estimations – but we are rarely off the mark. We are open to all areas of the UK – with territory exclusivity available for multi-site operators, as mentioned above.

Our agreements are renewable at the completion of their initial term, providing all terms and conditions contained in them, are met, for the duration. Our fees are only payable at the beginning of the first term – therefore – no renewal fees are applicable with us. Our agreements are offered over 10 years for a master agreement, 5 years for single sites.

Hight growth, attractive margins

As we mentioned before, the specialty Arabica coffee segment is the growth area in the coffee industry. Coffee remains a high growth category, with attractive margins. Coffee Planet offers a well-differentiated brand with a supremely high-quality core product. Add to the mix our expert know-how (we have 7 Q-Graders in our team. There are only 11 in the entire UAE!! These are the industry specialists recognized by the SCA to score and grade coffee – think wine experts!), our stylishly-themed café designs and competitive fee structure and you will be hard pressed to find an investment proposition with so much temptation and opportunity.

Coffee Planet's history

Coffee Planet began life in 2005, delivering freshly-ground coffee and fresh milk vending solutions to the two major blue-chip oil company convenience stores across the UAE – some 250 plus locations still, to this day. Over time, we developed complete coffee services to leading 5-star hotels, catering companies, restaurants, cafes, airlines and offices. In addition, we have developed online and in-store retail lines, across territories. We have grown our market presence and now trade in excess of 20 countries – with yet more to come. Café franchising has seen our business grow across the UK – in Cardiff, Pakistan – in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad, as well as an established presence in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. In total, we have 18 trading stores, with deals signed to deliver over 40 new locations in the coming years.
