The Coffee Club arrives at Hobson Centre

rsz_coffee_clubNorthwest Auckland has welcomed the opening of The Coffee Club Hobson Centre, The Coffee Club’s 57th store in New Zealand. The latest store has a prime spot in the Hobson Centre, a new retail centre in Hobsonville, which is expected to become a key metropolitan urban centre, offering shopping, entertainment, business and public amenities.

Owners, Roger Dundang and Marcus Lau say they already feel like a part of the community and are looking forward to welcoming local food and coffee lovers into the café.

“We looked at a few different café options but The Coffee Club really stood out,” explains Roger. “We love that Kiwis associate it with good food and coffee. We also really like that The Coffee Club places a lot of importance on training, and making sure customers get consistent value and service. It’s a brand that we’re proud to be a part of.”

“It helps that we personally enjoy the food and drink options,” smiles Roger. “The menu is refreshed regularly, and limited-edition dishes like the bruschettas that are currently available, always go down well. Having said that, my absolute favourite is still the eggs benedict with smoked salmon!”

The Coffee Club directors, Brad Jacobs and Andy Lucas, are thrilled that Roger and Marc have joined the family. Their passion for hospitality, excellent food and coffee and the local Hobsonville area means they are a perfect fit.

“We are so pleased to have Roger and Marcus on board,” says Brad Jacobs, Co-Director and Property Manager of The Coffee Club New Zealand. “With the amount of on-going growth in the area, we knew it would be the ideal place for The Coffee Club. It will expand the dining options available and will provide both locals and those passing through with a comfortable, enjoyable location, whether they are wanting to meet friends and family, or simply savor a peaceful coffee alone.”

The Coffee Club Hobson Centre is located at Hobson Centre, 124 Hobsonville Rd, Hobsonville. It is open 7.30 am – 5:30 pm Monday to Friday. On Saturdays and Sundays it is open 8am – 5pm. The café serves a wide range of meals, snacks and sweets as well as hot and cold drinks.

The Coffee Club opened its first store in New Zealand in 2005, and has grown rapidly, since then, opening new stores all over New Zealand. It is one of the largest and fastest growing café brands in New Zealand.
