Australian Coffee Distribution Franchise Now Serving The Queen City
July 31, 2019 // oakscale.com // New York - Hailing from Australia, Xpresso Delight - an office-coffee distributor known for providing convenient, fresh and delicious premium coffee made with 100 percent Arabica coffee beans - is coming to the Charlotte area.
Starting operations in Charlotte on August 5, Xpresso Delight will have 150 coffee machines available to businesses and offices in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln and Union counties in North Carolina, and York county in South Carolina.
“We are thrilled to bring Xpresso Delight to the Charlotte community,” said local owner Bryan Zeiss. “We are excited to be a part of the office coffee revolution, working to connect coworkers at various dayparts. We look forward to sharing Xpresso Delight’s fresh and delicious coffee with the Queen City.”
Founded in 2003 in Australia, Xpresso Delight was created by Paul Crabtree and Stephen Spitz. Both were coming from a corporate background, and they saw the need for a better “office coffee experience.” Crabtree and Spitz went to work finding the right machine, coffee beans and systems for their new company, and landed on a high-quality Swiss-designed machine and premium proprietary coffee roast blend. Since then, the company has grown to 150 locations across Australia and New Zealand and is now expanding its U.S. operations.
Zeiss, a former institutional bond salesman, has always had a desire to be involved in business ownership. After working in the finance, investment and real estate industries, Bryan is now self-employed and plans on focusing entirely on growing Xpresso Delight in the Charlotte area.
“We wanted to offer a product that catered to everyone, and brought people together,” added Zeiss. “Everybody loves coffee and having a machine that provides premium coffee that people can get together and talk about is a great way to improve office culture.”
“Xpresso Delight’s main focus is providing a café-quality coffee experience in an office setting,” said Xpresso Delight COO Nigell Lee. “We aren’t like capsule coffee or a traditional drip pot because our beans are fresh ground and we use fresh milk to make options such as coffee, espresso, lattes and cappuccinos all at the press of a button.”
“We are excited to be operating in the Charlotte community and are thrilled to have Bryan as part of the Xpresso Delight family,” added Lee.
Currently, Xpresso Delight has five territories open and operating in the United States, primarily along the East Coast. In the next five years, the brand hopes to have machines in each of the 50 major business cities, including Chicago, Dallas and more across the nation. The brand has exclusively partnered with Oakscale, a New York-based franchise development company, for development efforts. Zeiss worked directly with Oakscale’s Senior Director of Development Joseph Sexton on his partnership with Xpresso Delight.
