The Coffee Club expands to Christchurch

coffee-clubThe Coffee Club New Zealand has expanded to Christchurch with plans to launch one more store in the city this year.

The Coffee Club Spitfire Square opened today on the back of two other stores that opened within the last six months. The Coffee Club plans to open one more store in the area by the end of the year.

The owners of the new Coffee Club store, Nick Jenkins and Tracy Tai, said they are looking forward to be part of the community and contribute to the ongoing development and success of the region.

They said they will serve, along with the usual options, some chef specials with seasonal produce to cater to customers in the evening.

The Coffee Club directors, Brad Jacobs and Andy Lucas, said they are keen for The Coffee Club to have a greater presence in Christchurch. The recent development of Spitfire Square, one of the city’s newest retail hotspots, provided the team with the ideal location for their next store.

“There are some very good opportunities for café owners in Christchurch at the moment. The dining and café culture has evolved at a rapid rate since the quakes. It’s a very exciting place to be, there’s a great vibe, and customers are getting more and more choice, which is just fantastic,” said Jacobs.

“Spitfire Square made perfect sense for us. With its close proximity to the airport, it’s a convenient place to relax and enjoy good food and coffee while waiting for a flight to arrive. The store also has up-to-date arrival and departure boards so customers can keep track of their flight. On top of that, there is plenty of free car parking, a rarity near any international airport, and lots of indoor and outdoor seating. It’s the ideal place to catch up with friends and family,” he added.

The Coffee Club Spitfire Square is located at 530-546 Memorial Avenue, Christchurch. Jenkins and Tai are in the process of applying for their liquor license. They hope to offer alcoholic beverage options for their customers in a month’s time.

The Coffee Club opened its first store in New Zealand in 2005, and has grown rapidly, since then, opening new stores all over New Zealand. There are now 58 The Coffee Clubs in New Zealand.
