Some­thing big brew­ing at Con­don Zar­raffa’s a driv­ing force

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - CHRISTIE AN­DER­SON

ZAR­RAFFA’S Cof­fee will open their third Townsville store at Con­don ad­ding to Townsville’s drive- through food and bev­er­age of­fer­ings.

The drive- through cof­fee mer­chant will open on Mon­day at 887 River­way Drive along­side Pie House which will also of­fer drive- through ser­vice.

Townsville fran­chisee Corey Blake­more said the lo­cal com­mu­nity had em­braced Zar­raffa’s cof­fee with the added con­ve­nience of be­ing able to drive through.

“All our stores are drive through but we know the im­por­tance of of­fer­ing a cool, in­store en­vi­ron­ment for those wish­ing to take time out of their day, es­pe­cially in our cli­mate,” he said.

“Whether it be the guys and girls from the lo­cal army base, the Cow­boys play­ers on their way to and from train­ing, tradies out and about, or mums and dads on the school run – there is a cof­fee op­tion that suits ev­ery­one.

“It will be a stand- alone, drive- through store that will of­fer a dine- in en­vi­ron­ment; some­where to stop off and grab a bite, just across from the Ross River.”

The new store will cater to peo­ple on the western side of town, near the turn off to the A1 Ring Road and close James Cook Univer­sity.

More than 70 peo­ple will be em­ployed across the three Townsville stores.

Manag­ing di­rec­tor and founder of Zar­raffa’s Cof­fee Ken­ton Camp­bell said the love af­fair with his brand in Townsville had el­e­vated the lo­cal stores to some of the top in the group.

“From day one the peo­ple of Townsville have sup­ported our busi­nesses and we look for­ward to grow­ing with the com­mu­nity, through prod­uct and ser­vice and lo­cal em­ploy­ment,” he said.

“We al­ready have an­other site ready to open in 2018 and will look at fu­ture growth op­por­tu­ni­ties as they arise but the bot­tom line is that we love our Townsville cus­tomers and we are here to stay.” to
