Muffin Break reach yet another milestone – the opening of their 200th store!


The newest store is located at the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park, Sydney. This momentous occasion is just another addition to Muffin Break’s long list of achievements over their 26 year history.

Muffin Break launched in 1989 and was the first systematic franchise network to pioneer freshly-baked products on-site and offer national quality espresso coffee. Over the following decade Muffin Breaks have been launched worldwide, with more than 280 stores across Australia, New Zealand, India and United Kingdom. With the majority of franchises located in Australia there have been some significant moments throughout their history, such as launching the gluten free range, offering the first freshly-baked gluten-free product in a national franchise, Muffin Break was also the first national café not to charge for soy.

As Australian franchise leaders Muffin Break has contributed to the education of the future of the franchising industry, launching accredited in-house training programs which see qualified Muffin Break consultants achieve Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and Certificate III in Hospitality and implementing an E-Learning communication portal for online training.

Muffin Break is also partnered with the not-for-profit organisation Good Beginnings, who build better outcomes for children and their families in vulnerable communities as well as hosting Cookie Creation Workshops during the school holidays at selected Muffin Breaks all year round. There is also one last notable mention and contribution to the history of Muffin Break- one very talented franchisee went down in the books, the Guinness World Record books, for the most number of cappuccinos made in an hour in 2010.
