• The Cafe sector contracted slightly across our 19 tracked brands with 184 opens and 207 closures in the 12 months to June 30, 2023 with many brands looking to consolidate locations around the CBD’s as cafe spending has remained more home based than place of work based.
• There was a split between traditional Cafe’s contracting in network size whilst bubble tea brands opened more sites during the year.
• Gong Cha (+23), Chatime (+18) and Boost Juice (+17) were the largest growth brands over the past 12 months whilst 10 of our tracked brands reduced in size over the same time period.
