The Story so far

Cafe Coach History

Cafe Coach started as an idea for cafe entrepreneur, Rita Zhang, to help her friends.

Her track record of cafe business success (6 cafe’s bought and sold at a profit) and a growing profile in the industry (including selection as a certified coffee judge for the Australian National Barista Championships), lead to Rita often being quoted and interviewed in newspapers, radio and television.

After seeing many of her peers and colleagues struggle with the ‘fallout’ from the GFC (Global Financial Crisis) in 2007. Rita wanted some way to provide a ‘safety net’ and support for those around her.

Her idea to run ‘bootcamps’ and build a website with business advice, finally launched in March 2008.

From Rita’s inspirational idea to a growing worldwide community of cafe entrepreneurs. Today, Cafe Coach is a space where cafe entrepreneurs from all walks of life can belong.

On the Cafe Coach website you will find resources to take you to the next level.

In the Cafe Life with Cafe Coach group on LinkedIn you can have conversations with like minded cafe entrepreneurs and others.

On Instagram and TikTok, share the trials, tribulations and success of your #cafelife with #CafeEntrepreneurs.
