Café Talk: Perth & Adelaide

ALL Things Cafe That Food Service Suppliers need to know … The Cafe scene is booming – however, how will your business engage these cafes?

You may know that Café owners & Baristas tend to spend most of their waking hours in the café, tending to customers, dealing with staff and suppliers, etc, etc – generally ensuring that their “offer” is as good as it can be and that everything runs smoothly. 

So, then, how much time do they really get to work on the business and not in it? How much time do they get to really assessand analyse their own café, their business, to make sure that every aspect of the business is keeping up with best practice.   What even is best Cafe practice?

That’s where the COBAA can help.  COBAA will provide you with valuable insight in to what’s happening in the industry, the trends, who’s doing it well & how you can apply all of this to the benefit of your business

David Parnham, COBAA President and owner of the annual Pulse Café Report, has been an integral part of the Café FoodService shift. David and the cafe Talk presenters will share vital information with suppliers about the café market’s current status and will look forward to the future.
