Cafe Pulse – Fact of the Week 10 – CBD & Regional Cafes now main growth drivers

Did you know that larger CBD & Regional Cafes are now the main growth drivers since 2015?

Two years before we predicted the rise of the Rural Sector Café scene that has now boomed to 29% of the national Café Numbers. As both Inner city CBD and their suburbs are reaching saturation points the regional lifestyle and popular locations for “New To Industry” of NTI locations for gourmet style local Cafes in rural towns have flourished the 2017 Café Pulse respondents have spoken.

The Role of the landmark CBD location Gourmet Café has also increased since the last survey in 2015 where 18% of the nation’s Cafes where in the heart of our major cities financial areas – Today there are 26% of all Cafes in the high volume traffic CBD areas and growing to the decline of the Suburban Café scene. One of the main reasons for CBD Café growth includes the popularity of residential real estate and the high number of loyal “Brunch” only café patrons on Weekends flocking to our amazing gourmet CBD Café Culture.

We take this opportunity to say thank you to all the +800 cafés included into this year’s bi-annual “State Of the Café Industry Report”. With over seven years of history rich in both detailed trend analysis and knowledge gained to be made available in this important research. We can now have real café benchmarks and thus café owners, coffee roasters and the café suppliers can best set benchmarks in some café’s being higher than the average café above and those below.

These and many other vital industry benchmark questions have now just been completed and will be available early December 2017. It may interest you however, that these and the many more key Café Industry trends will be key in sights gained by the Café Pulse survey release of the long awaited “State Of the Café Industry Report” later this year.
