Established Franchisor of the Year? You Bet We Are! Jamaica Blue Shines at Awards Night

Over the past three decades, Jamaica Blue has won numerous awards. Happily, that streak has continued in 2024! On May 20th, we took out one of the top gongs at the ‘Excellence in Franchising’ national awards, run by the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA).

Celebrating High Standards Across Jamaica Blue

Jamaica Blue took home the crown of ‘Australian Established Franchisor of the Year’, a credit to the dedication and ingenuity of our national team, as well as the hard work of franchisees across the country.

Operated by Foodco Group, Jamaica Blue has become famous for its fresh ingredients and delicious coffee. Founded in Australia in 1992, it now has a  network of more than 160 cafés around the world, covering Australia, New Zealand, China, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Malaysia and the United Kingdom.

Foodco’s CEO Richard Goodman comments that “over its 32 years, Jamaica Blue has evolved, grown and achieved many great things through the commitment of our franchise partners, staff and owners.”

“This is an incredibly special award win and testament to the hard work of all.”

The FCA recognised the established systems of Jamaica Blue, the integration of national and local marketing, plus the high satisfaction levels of franchisees.

Always Moving With the Market 

Jamaica Blue has stayed at the top of food retail thanks to both our deep experience and ability to identify new growth opportunities.

Location is a huge factor in franchising and our strong relationships with national landlords in Australia allow us to secure the best positions near anchor stores. 

We’ve also driven growth by expanding into hospitals and busy transit areas, capturing the high footfall with the finest coffee and a crowd-pleasing menu of contemporary classics.  

Foodco also Wins FCA National Field Manager of the Year 

Not only did Jamaica Blue take out the prestigous award, but our very own James Wadsworth from Foodco won the ‘National Field Manager of the Year’ award, a hotly contested category. A passionate and dedicated Franchise Coach, James has spent over seven years supporting franchise owners from both Jamaica Blue and Muffin Break in Victoria, so when you join us, you know you are in good hands!

Behind You Every Step of the Way? You Bet We Are!

When you join Jamaica Blue, you’re tapping into the collective experience of Foodco, one of Australia’s top franchise groups.
