Register your interest by emailing your contact details to We will contact you by phone and have a general discussion. If we’re both comfortable to proceed after this discussion, we will email you a detailed new franchisee information pack. The pack includes information on ROI, potential income range, itemized inclusions in the business and much much more.

Step 3. Apply

A follow up call from our franchise development team will answer more of your questions and conclude with an application form being emailed to you.

We will email you our Disclosure Document for your perusal.

Step 4. Let's Meet!

This is where we can get to know each other face‐to‐face. We’ll introduce Xpresso Mobile Café and discuss the franchising opportunity in more detail. We’ll review your completed Application Form and address any questions you may have. You will be encouraged to spend a morning with an actual franchisee to see what it’s all about! Alternatively, you may wish to fly to Brisbane to spend a morning with the franchisor, an operator and tour the Di Bella Coffee roasting & training centre. The cost of flights is reimbursed if you move forward with a franchise opportunity. At this stage, a deposit of $2500 is paid to the franchisor to secure your nominated territory. This deposit is fully refundable until your Franchise Agreement is executed.

Step 5. Finance

The $125 000 + GST entry cost is made up of 3 separate invoices. Your van cost from Mercedes Benz. The fit-out cost from our fit-out company and the final balance from Xpresso Mobile Café that ultimately turns your van into an income producing mobile café!

Step 6. Legal Documents

A number of legal documents will be provided by our solicitor including your Franchise Agreement and Disclosure documents. The cost to you for these document is a fixed fee of $1500 + GST. We can discuss and address questions regarding Franchise documentation and address any issues at any time. The documents arrive with full instructions and are very self explanatory.

Your 2-week in-territory training is with you, in the van, in the territory, working at your pace to ensure the quality of the coffee being served is top notch as well as helping you build your initial customer base.
