A new taste to North Ward

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

COF­FEE lovers of Townsville have cause for ex­cite­ment fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment that well- known Ma­reeba at­trac­tion Cof­fee Works will be open­ing a store in North Ward.

With a new store in Port Dou­glas and an es­tab­lished shop in Cairns, tap­ping into the Townsville mar­ket is part of the busi­ness’ greater ex­pan­sion plans.

Cof­fee Works will of­fer Townsville res­i­dents 43 types of cof­fee, in ad­di­tion to tea and hand­crafted choco­lates and liqueurs.

Gre­gory St, where the store will open in mid- July, is well known for its bou­tiques, cafes and restau­rants.

Cof­fee Works own­ers An­nie and Rob Web­ber have seen the busi­ness grow from hum­ble begin­nings as a sin­gle mar­ket stall at Rusty’s Mar­kets in Cairns in 1988.

The Ma­reeba at­trac­tion now show­cases the Aus­tralian cof­fee in­dus­try to more than 150,000 visi­tors an­nu­ally.

“We see Townsville

as

a growth city and it is also close enough to Ma­reeba to ser­vice with our fresh prod­ucts,” Mr Web­ber said.

The lease over the 100sq m ten­ancy was ne­go­ti­ated by Col­liers In­ter­na­tional agents Kim Ad­di­son and Shaun McLaren.

“The sur­round­ing

ten­ants make a very com­ple­men­tary ten­ant mix and col­lec­tively draw cus­tomers to the area,” Ms Ad­di­son said.

“It’s fan­tas­tic to see such a suc­cess­ful North Queens­land busi­ness iden­ti­fy­ing Townsville as a strate­gic lo­ca­tion.

“It demon­strates busi­ness con­fi­dence in our city.”

ON THE MOVE: Ma­reeba Cof­fee Works owner An­nie Web­ber and her hus­band Rob are about to open a shop in Townsville’s CBD.
