More from Xpresso Delight

Stunningly Simple Concept

Premium Quality Coffee

We transplant the cafe experience into the workplace with our stunning coffee machines, our exclusive proprietary premium blend of coffee and personal coffee concierge service. There are no upfront costs, no contracts, and we simply charge a per cup rate to our clients. Delivering everyone's favorite cafe style coffees at the press of a button.

What is it?

  • Workplace coffee subscription service where franchise owners place & manage luxury espresso machines in offices to generate revenue by the cup
  • Xpresso Delight's Swiss-made machines serve premium, fresh-ground coffee, never powders or pods. Cafe-inspired drink options include espresso, coffee americano, macchiato, cappuccino, hot chocolate, and more
  • Xpresso Delight has sold hundreds of franchises to date internationally

How does it make money?

  • Business owners, corporate customers, and landlords pay Xpresso Delight franchisees a per-cup subscription fee to place and manage the machines in their workplace

Who is it for?

  • Those who prefer owning a simple operation with zero or very few employees
  • Prospective franchisees who want the flexibility to set their own schedule. The semi-passive model is ideal for stay-at-home moms and dads, retirees, and existing business owners
  • Experience in sales, food and beverage, hospitality, or commercial real estate contacts are all advantages, but not required

What would you do as a franchisee?

  • Identify office locations and strike subscription contracts with business owners, office managers, or landlords to place your espresso machines
  • Monitor the sales performance, operations, and inventory levels of your machines. Franchisees should expect to allocate around 30 minutes per machine per week
  • Expand your footprint of machine placements by setting up demonstrations of the coffee service for corporate offices
  • You can operate your Xpresso Delight franchise solo or hire employees as your portfolio of machines grows
