Over 150 east coast key suppliers, service providers and the café industry all rallied to improve the expanding café market from within.
“Café Talk” suppliers networking industry breakfasts have been a complete sellout during October 2014 across Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. With venues sponsored by the Café Owners & Barista Association of Australia, affectionately known as COBAA, Café Talk for Adelaide, Perth and the ACT are now in the planning.
COBBA, launched in February 2014, is the industry body that represents the interests of independent cafes and franchised cafes throughout Australia. The Association is a vehicle for like-minded café business owners and coffee professionals that are seeking improved industry communication, focused small business cafe services as well as up to date café owner and barista news and information.
“With these exciting networking opportunities taking place COBAA is now set to also deliver special Café Talk presentations for café owners that will provide enhanced knowledge, practical tips and inspiration to win in their business”, says David Parnham, President of COBAA.
The feedback from the industry has been tremendous said David, “special thanks to Coffee Brothers, The Grounds Of Alexandria, Dimattina, Di Bella, Lion Dairy & Drinks, Sandhurst Fine Foods and many successful café owners for sharing key OOH insights and their presentations and thus fully supporting this new initiative.”
For café suppliers, service providers & food service companies interested in becoming a Corporate COBAA member, please join the +25 founding members already on board for 2015.
