The Cafes and Coffee Shops industry has grown strongly over the past five years, owing much of its success to Australia's love for quality coffee and vibrant coffee culture. This love for coffee supported industry demand in the years following the global economic downturn and has fuelled revenue growth over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to grow by an annualised 3.2% over the five years through 2014-15. This includes a forecast increase of 2.4% in 2014-15, to $4.3 billion. However, competitive pressures have pushed profitability down slightly over the past five years.
The industry consists of cafes and coffee shops serving food and beverages to customers on premises. The industry excludes takeaway food services, restaurant and catering services, theatre restaurants and establishments that primarily sell alcohol for consumption on and off premises.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
