Gloria Jean’s Coffee in Malaysia

In Malaysia, Gloria Jean’s Coffee has been around for more than 10 years now. It has been growing quite steadily over the years and this continues to be the case. What makes franchising this business a good investment is that you have a global brand at the starting point.

Franchising Gloria Jean’s Coffee

The startup cost for an outlet of Gloria Jean’s Coffee will depend mostly on the location, size and type of your store. The full store concept is one which is most prominent. You will need a large space which can house dine-in customers, hold functions and for take-away customers. This will cost you around RM750,000. The franchise fee will be RM65,000 which is quite acceptable considering its brand’s stature. On top of that, the amount will include other payments like insurance, equipment, renovation, design and such. This type of outlet is best in shopping centres and as stand-alone cafes.

Other Franchising options

Another option that you can consider is the Gloria Jean’s Coffees Kiosk concept. This option will be best if you have limited space. You do not have the luxury of a standalone outlet like the full store. In most cases, it could be a half retail lot or just a portion of a lot. As the name implies, your customers will most likely be take-away people while you might have a small area for dine-in customers. This type of business is great for lobby areas in hotels or office buildings. The investment you need to start would be about RM500,000.

Coffee Cart – this model is very volatile. You can set it up anywhere possible and is the cheapest form of business you can start which is about RM300,000. As the Gloria Jean’s Coffee Cart is a compact sized business, you do not need a large space. Your customers will most likely be take-away customers but what you want really is to find a high-traffic location.
