Melbournians are one of the highest consumers of coffee in Australia. It is also a city full of people exceptionally picky with their cafes. You may walk into into a cafe on a strip brimming with people and then ten metres down the track, another is struggling to pay the rent.
The difference between life and death in the cafe business in Melbourne is a fine line. It could be the quality of the coffee beans, a skilled barista, coffee and food presentation, atmosphere, location, music and decor. A crucial element is the staff’s ability to make regulars feel at home.
One cafe brand that has the formulae down to a tea is Beans Republique. Since opening their doors in 2009 Beans Republique had opened multiple franchises in trendy Melbourne areas and are making a name for themselves as a good vibe coffee house, with first rate coffee and chef inspired food.
Jen Nguyen and Pat Hoang started their first cafe in 2009, it was on the breezy Frankston shore in Bayside Melbourne. With a focus on great coffee, home-styled food and excellent customer service it was an instant success, which inspired Pat and Jen to pursue their food dream with a future vision. Today, 8 years and multiple stores later, the blueprint for Beans Republique cafe is well and truly written.
According to Jenny Nguyen, “It was a matter of securing an exceptional coffee supplier, and getting the combination right between delicious food, great atmosphere and happy staff”.
A successful cafe does not only only need smart operations inside the establishment, according to Jenny, “social media is also very important to keep the fun vibe up and keep the locals interested”. Social media is one of the reasons Beans Republique has become popular in Melbourne. The likes and comments received on Facebook and Instagram has helped build the brand and entice new customers. Potential customers can eat with their eyes, scrolling on their homepage through various artistic plates of food and dreaming of the next delicious meal.
Jenny certainly does not want to compare Beans Republique Cafe to a Coffee Club or Gloria Jeans. “Our cafes are not bland, each one of them is unique, a concept based on good times, built on the three key ingredients great vibe, great products, great service”.
