Cafe Pulse – Fact of the Week 4

Roasters Do Not Just Service Cafés

The Annual Café Pulse research reveals exciting information about the Out Of Home ( OOH ) Coffee service points and it shouldn’t surprise Café Owners that they are not the sole focus when it comes to servicing the wider FoodService channel hunger for Coffee supply.

The below highlights the many key channel service points that Roasters supply to across Australia and this leads us to best understand the fact that Coffee is the No. 1 FoodService Beverage of choice OOH.

As we at Café Culture during the 4th Annual Surveys are learning more about the expanding Out Of Home ( OOH ) Coffee Market in Australia and we are constantly asked about how can café suppliers and café service providers segment the FoodService market to categorise them to best service these valued businesses.

Since all these OOH Businesses have Coffee, we can now split the FoodService OOH market like this

We can explain how we do it for our segmentation proposes where this may also assist your OOH business understand where you best fit in the market place

Franchised (Café, Takeaway, Restaurant) or QSR (Quick Service Restaurant) is determined by being a group of five or more outlets centrally managed
