About Really Awesome Coffee

Really Awesome Coffee is the UK’s leading mobile coffee franchise, serving gourmet hot drinks and quality foodstuffs to customers at local businesses and events from our unique mobile cafes. With over 1.7bn cups of coffee sold each year in the UK, the coffee market is currently one of the most lucrative industries to be a part of.

Our proven business model allows franchise partners to take the traditional high street coffee shop direct to the customers wherever they are! Franchisees typically enjoy a healthy work-life balance working Monday to Friday delivering fresh coffee in a sociable, stress-free environment with the option of additional weekend work for increased income.

What is the Fast-Track Training Program?

Our Fast-Track Training & Launch Program is typically spread over 4-6 weeks and is designed to accelerate your business growth and provide you with the necessary skills, knowledge and information to ensure your franchise gets off the best possible start. Backed up with an assisted business launch, your dedicated Franchise Development Manager will cover everything from professional barista training to bookkeeping, sales & customer service to general business management. There is no need to have prior experience running a business or in the hospitality industry as our training and ongoing support will provide you with all the skills and knowledge required to run a successful mobile coffee business.

The Fast-Track Training & Launch Program is a fully accommodated training plan consisting of:

Preliminary Head Office training – During this week of the training your Franchise Development Manager will help find your customers and build your round for you. The focus will be on how to research and build your daily coffee. You will also undertake your professional barista training at our in-house training centre, ensuring you are fully equipped with the skills and knowledge to be able to serve your customers great tasting coffee.

Supervised preparation – The preparation phase is typically between 2 and 6 weeks depending on your personal circumstances and requirements. You will be undertaking guided research and approving local suppliers as well as attending exploration days with one or more of our existing franchise partners.

Final Head Office training – This week will is focused on building both your practical and business skills. You will receive comprehensive training in marketing & social media, bookkeeping, IT systems & software, HACCP, Health & Safety, Safe Food Handling and more. You will also undertake advanced barista training as we start applying your new skills to real life scenarios.

Assisted business launch – Your launch will be based in your area with your Franchise Development Manager plus an extra member of our specialised launch team who will supervise and assist the start-up and development of your daily coffee route. They will be on hand to help fast-track your franchise by guiding you and offering expert knowledge on how to best conduct your business for success. With a wealth of experience our launch team will ensure that you have all the necessary information, skills and knowledge to hit-the-ground-running.
