Cafe2U is proud to be the pioneer of the mobile cafe industry. Cafe2U launched its first prototype mobile coffee business in the year 2000 on the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia. It was with this first vehicle that the mobile cafe concept and potential profitability of this new style of mobile coffee business model were tested. 

In 2004 Cafe2U was purchased by its current owners, and a strategy was implemented to fully franchise the business. 

In 2005 the franchise business model was complete and Cafe2U was relaunched in the Australian market. At that time Cafe2U had 12 Franchise Partners, all of which were Sydney based. During 2005 Cafe2U commenced a proof of concept in Leeds, UK with a view to expand the brand internationally.

There are currently 115 Franchise Partners operating across Australia with a further 52  operating in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland. It is current the world’s largest mobile coffee franchise system.
