Hey guys and dolls! First of all, we’d like to thank you for your interest in Mangobean…

Can’t blame you really since we are pretty awesome! We’re delighted to introduce the Mangobean Coffee Shop Franchise.

Mangobean is a fun, innovative and affordable coffee shop franchise. We delight our customers with amazing products, and wow them with our fun concepts and settings. Fancy a coffee and a waffle in our Love Nest or a frappé and a cake in our Nerds’ Corner? Welcome to Mangobean – A Coffee Wonderland!

We’ve had an amazing year at Mangobean, with a number of shops now in full swing around the country! Our 9th store opened recently in Darlington as has our new stores in Bolton, Reading, Leatherhead and our second store in Reading (Reading Broad Street). We will be opening our Manchester, Southend and Gateshead stores in the next few weeks!

People are starting to fall in love with our awesome coffee and having a fun experience in our innovative and fun coffee shops. We have developed a concept that can be scaled to meet the requirements of a franchise partner, whether that be a single store, multiple stores or for those who wish to develop a region or territory, the opportunity to become a Development Agent (Master Franchise)

Our journey

We’ve been setting up coffee shops, selling our own branded products and banging on about the perfect coffee shop concept for years! Now we are taking the Mangobean brand and concept nationwide, opening stores across the U.K. at a rate of knots!

It’s simple but effective concept, if you love coffee and having a bit of a banter with people and want the independence that comes with running your own coffee shop business, you will love Mangobean! Our brand is all about delicious coffee, enjoying life, great products and obviously making loads of WONGA!

The UK coffee shop market is booming and our goal is to become the UK’s 4th largest coffee chain and we are looking for enthusiastic people to join us in 2016!


For the rest of 2016, we are offering a fantastic offer for new partners joining Mangobean! For £9,000 (+VAT), we are offering 2 coffee shop licenses, meaning that a new partner can open a shop now and another in future. In addition to 2 store licenses, we are offering franchise partners the opportunity to operate a ‘Mangobean GO’ Food Cube or Spacestation.

These innovative units allow partners to access shopping centre complexes and smaller retail units. The added benefit of operating these units is that no capital outlay is required.

To ensure our partners have the best start, we will ensure their Mangobean Coffee Shop is fully stocked (excluding fresh food) prior to opening.
