ESPRESSA was founded by Veni Chorafitis and Harry Ambanavos, owners of Mr Espresso.

With a retail and coffee industry background that spans over 23 years and 20 espresso bars, ESPRESSA is an evolution that has taken the best parts of each and every one of those 20 stores and created a business model that is second to none. There are currently 4 Espressa stores with a further 5 opening in the next 12 months.

The mistakes (and yes there were plenty of them) taught some valuable lessons and all this experience has gone into making ESPRESSA a more refined model for the current consumer.

Mr Espresso Food Services is the secret to our success. By building on a "one stop shop of supply" we free up the store owner to focus on service, sales and quality of product . We have also been able to drive supply prices down as a buying group and negotiate favourable rentals due to our experience.

Due to the overwhelming success of the Mr Espresso retail and wholesale system, Veni and Harry decided to license the Espressa Brand to owner operators. They strongly believe that with flexibility in the system (unlike a traditional franchise system that is strict and uncompromising) they could better compete in an already "busy marketplace" and achieve a lower cost model for owner operators.

Espressa are now seeking licensing partners, to help fulfil our vision to establish over 100 licensed
Espressa stores, Australia wide in the next five years.
