Jamaica Blue to celebrate opening of 100th store


To celebrate the opening of the 100th Australian Jamaica Blue café at Westfield Miranda, the first 100 customers of all 100 Jamaica Blue Australian café outlets will be offered a FREE coffee on Thursday 16 October.

Australian-owned and operated by The Foodco Group, the Jamaica Blue franchise brand commenced trading in October 1992, when the Westfield Group approached Foodco to secure a sophisticated café offering to suit the fashion and lifestyle retail precincts of the Miranda (NSW) shopping centre.

More than two decades later and in the midst of a major redevelopment of the Westfield Miranda centre, the 100th Jamaica Blue Australian café will officially open with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Jamaica Blue café (the second within Westfield Miranda) at 10.30am on Thursday 16 October.

First franchisee Don MantonThe event will be attended by Don Manton, the very first Jamaica Blue franchisee, as well as by Grishma Rana, franchise-owner of the 100th Australian Jamaica Blue café. Currently trading Jamaica Blue Miranda1 franchisee, Elvis Sabapathy, will also attend the event, in addition to Jamaica Blue National Brand Manager, Drew Eide. 

Furthermore, Jamaica Blue Executive Chef, Danika Heslop, will share her tips and tricks on how to make the perfect Pulled Pork Sliders with Morello cherry and raisin chutney, pickled cabbage and mayonnaise, during a special cooking demonstration at the Events Kitchen (opposite Woolworths) on Level 1 of Westfield Miranda from 11am-12noon on Friday, 17 October.

FREE taste-samples of Jamaica Blue’s popular Pulled Pork Sliders will be offered to attendees of the cooking demonstration, where recipe cards will also be available for customers to take home.

In addition to its quality offering of food freshly-prepared on-site daily and made using the finest locally-sourced ingredients, Jamaica Blue is renowned for its award-winning range of premium-blend coffee, which is also now available to Jamaica Blue international customers across New Zealand (where six Jamaica Blue cafés trade), China (21 cafés), the United Arab Emirates (seven cafés), Singapore (three cafés) and Malaysia (one café opened last August). With Jamaica Blue to also launch in the United Kingdom by the end of this year, the Australian-owned and operated brand continues to make its mark on local and international markets to-boot.
