Zaraffa's Coffee franchise moves to Logan
Coffee franchise Zaraffa’s has completed its shift north of its Gold Coast birthplace to a new $20 million headquarters, in a move that also takes the business in a new direction.
Founder Kenton Campbell has launched a concept cafe, Kiwanda, next to his company’s new corporate base at Eagleby.
The site is also where he’s built Distillery Road Market, a fresh produce, dining and entertainment precinct, for which he’s now seeking tenants.
The market, designed on a 17,000sq m reclaimed commercial warehouse, will have more than 4500sq m of lettable area.
Mr Campbell, whose Tonken Property Group has developed the market concept, said he was seeking an experiential retail mix.
“DRM actually brings together all the things I enjoy most in life – a wide variety of great food and beverage options, curated shopping experiences and a knockout environment to sit back, relax and take it all in,” he said.
“I’m also both a retailer and a consumer, and I wanted to create a hub for everyone – both locals and tourists, families and couples, the young and old – somewhere that fuels all five senses.”
Mr Campbell hopes to launch the market late next year or early in 2021, for Thursday to Sunday trading.
Zaraffa’s new national headquarters, relocated from its former home at Helensvale, is the anchor tenant of the property, with its roastery, warehouse and cafe already taking up almost 7000sq m. Source: goldcoastbulletin.com.au
