Muffin Break Castletown Shopping Centre

May 26, 2017


Business Overview
Muffin Break Castletown was established by the vendor in 2002. The business is ideally located in a high profile corner position with excellent walk by traffic at Shop 34 Castletown Shopping Centre, Hyde Park, Townsville. The business prides itself on delivering top quality coffee and delicious baked goods.

The store received the awards of Best Store in Australia and Best Store in Queensland in both 2012 and 2013 and is consistently in the top 10 stores in Queensland. A refit was undertaken only 3 and a half years ago and all facilities and equipment are in good condition.

About Muffin Break
Muffin Break arrived in Australia in 1989 and its famous award-winning signature blend coffee, and freshly baked and prepared range can now be found right across Australia, New Zealand, India, and the United Kingdom. There are now roughly 320 stores globally: 212 in Australia, 41 in New Zealand, and 57 in the United Kingdom.

Owning a Muffin Break bakery café allows you to experience the perks of being your own boss alongside the backing and support of a well established and nationally recognised brand. An ideal balance of both freedom and support are some of the perks of belonging to the Muffin Break franchise network. Muffin Break is committed to providing nationally recognised training courses to new and existing franchise partners and their staff. Relevant and practical training courses have been carefully selected to ensure franchise partners and staff are well equipped with any necessary skills required to operate a successful bakery café, allowing for a motivated and knowledgeable team.
