Success Stories

Mario Coffee Fellows Franchise-Partner

"The big advantage in franchising with Coffee Fellows is, of course, that the system headquarters keeps your back free. That means you simply concentrate on your daily business. On the products, on the team, your employees and guests and for the rest you have a strong partner behind you."

Patricia From temporary worker to coach

"I found it fascinating how you can make people happy with coffee and that is my mission."

Nicole From store manager to area manager

A few years ago, Nicole still ran her own Coffee Fellows Shop. Today she is responsible for 20 coffee shops as Area Manager.
