The Coffee Club‘s Boundary Street store in West End has been given a new lease on life with a recent change of owners and a major refurbishment.

Business partners Jorge Kokoris and Emmanuel Diacos are the new cafe owners. The duo, who have been Coffee Club franchisees for six years, hope the store will become the go-to place for coffee lovers seeking a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

“We’d like regular customers to know that The Coffee Club West End is under new management and will reopen with extended trading hours. And, we’re here for the long haul,” Mr Kokoris said. “Our intention is to open 12 months of the year, seven days a week, from 6am to 10pm.” Mr Kokoris said the extended trading hours mean the venue will be able to welcome cyclists and other early risers, as well as late night dinner guests and shift workers.

“With a prime Boundary Street position and ample car parking out the back, we are in the perfect position to capitalise on passing foot traffic and offer the perfect meeting place for Highgate Hill and West End residents and small business owners,” he said.

The site is steeped in history. As well as being The Coffee Club’s seventh store to open, it was also once the franchise group’s unofficial headquarters. “With so much history in this store, we are proud to be taking over this business and look forward to welcoming our friends old and new to our latest venture,” Mr Kokoris said.

The Coffee Club’s West End store is located at 209 Boundary Street, West End. The store reopened for business on Monday, 4 July 2016.
