Nedbank Business Accelerator with CapeTalk

Coffee company brewing up a success

Enter your business in the Nedbank Business Accelerator Campaign with CapeTalk today.

Christo König founder of the Midnight Oil Coffee Co. says the idea for his business came when he realised there was a need for good coffee for people in the work place.

Today they have 36 franchises which are all 100% small owned businesses with a core focus on service delivery.

He says at the Midnight Oil Coffee Co they roast their own coffee beans, manufacture own solubles and service many clients through the franchise network.

They are looking at growing their company but finances are a problem as companies they service don't want to own the coffee machines. They are finding it difficult to buy these machines and rent them out to corporate companies.

Listen to Pavlo Phitidis's advice on how this business can be progressed to the next level:
