Partner-Modelle

Regarding our single franchise model, we are looking for franchise partners who want to open 
a single coffeee shop in Germany for now.  As a franchise candidate, you may bring into the system a suitable property
and rental property respectively. If not, we can offer you a location from our real estate portfolio as a rule, 
or we go searching together with you for a suitable location. Look at the current overview below.

The franchise partner finances the shop fitting and furnishings independently. During the implementation, 
he does, however, get active support and an intensive service package from the franchise headquarters.

There is, of course, the chance for franchisees who successfully run their first coffee shop to open further shops.

For the regional franchise model we are looking for independent entrepreneurs, who want to grow with us 
on a regional basis (city or region) and open a certain number of shops over a defined period of time. 
The regional franchise model gives you as a partner the opportunity to develop a city or region and establish franchise locations. 
You are responsible for the development and expansion of the Coffee Fellows locations in your region. 
In doing so, you receive the licence to exclusively market the Coffee Fellows concept in the agreed target region 
and to establish the brand. The exact terms of the regional franchise agreements depend entirely on the size and 
location of the stores. In all cases, we draw up a realistic development plan, recommending that you operate 
the first few shops yourself to gain an excellent, basic understanding of the coffee shop business.

A new Master Franchise contract can only be concluded in foreign markets 
in which Coffee Fellows has not yet been active.

The Master Franchise model gives you the chance to develop an entire country and establish 
franchise locations. You are then responsible for building and expanding the Coffee fellows locations 
of the destination country. You receive the licence to market the Coffee Fellows concept 
in the selecetd country and to establish the brand.   

The exact conditions of the Master Franchise contracts are fully based on size and location of the markets.
In all cases, we develop a realisitc development plan for a definite market, which is connected with a fee 
for entering the Coffee Fellows system. (We do not grant individual franchise models for shops 
outside Germany since the effort for implementing the Coffee Fellows system in a new market is very high). 

For almost all markets, a minimum of 10 shops is planned.  In large markets, this minimum will be 
significantly higher. In return, the Master Franchisee is granted exclusivity in their country or region.

Generally we recommend to you, as a Master Franchisee, to run the first few shops yourself in order to acquire an excellent,
fundamental understanding of the coffee shop business. Subsequent branches then can be run by sub-franchisees or leaseholders. 

These are mostly single persons who are provided a completely furnished shop und who then, in return, 
pay you a certain percentage of the net turnover. As a rule, you yourself work in the businesses and need 
much less capital than a franchisee. Your main expenditures are for personnel and goods. In this model, 
the Master Franchisee holds the rental contract and bears all costs connected with it.
