What We're About

We're your full-service partner in business design, planning, strategy and launch. With our coffee industry knowledge, experience and personalized human touch, we'll implement a customized business plan, optimized to see you Kickstart something special.

The Team at Kickstart Coffee Shop has been at the forefront of coffee business trends since 2004. We were starting coffee shops before it was even cool to be in coffee. (Does that make us cool?) We've been helping achieve "Life Changing" results for our Clients. It's at the core of who we are and why we exist.  

Our top values are innovation and collaboration. We know that if we aren't creating new ideas, we'll get left behind. We also fiercely advocate on behalf of our Clients to see them benefit accross every touchstone. Living and breathing these values has made us the logical alternative to franchising or risking it alone. That's our promise to you.

Simon O'Brien - Founder

Meet Simon

Fifteen years ago I left the cosy confines of employment with one of Australia’s wealthiest mining companies. Operating multi million dollar trucks and equipment had lost its gloss for me and i was restless!  

At the time I was reading a lot, (particularly Robert Kiyosaki) and decided to make my own way and get ahead, I had to break the confines of employment and “charter my own ship,”.  

Fast forward now to 2019, after many years of costly trial and error experience building coffee shop’s, including our own national coffee chain. I can safely say the step into coffee has certainly changed my life for the best.  

Today my passion, (BESIDES good coffee) is helping like minded people find the freedom I so much enjoy in being my own boss.


Our Process

Kickstart Coffee Shop works a little different than others. We don't start by trying to sell you the dream and then squeeze you into a box.

We begin with a free initial strategy session and consultation to determine where your business plan is at. From there, we'll give you the honest truth about your best prospects. Only if its in your best interest will we explain exactly how we can help tailor an independent business to suit your needs. This is a proven process that covers everything from site selection / negotiation thru to launch. 

We'll then work with you to select which plan will be the most beneficial for your budget, timeline, and goals. Then, we assemble your team and start implementing - best part is your totally independent, which means no royalty fees ever!

Long story short...

This is not a franchise. It's your business, your brand, with no strings attached. Discover why even experienced coffee operators are coming to us for the best in design, innovation and opportunity.

Case Studies

“If your looking to start a cafe/coffee shop then please do yourself a favour and have a chat with Kickstart Coffee Shop. It will be the single best thing you can do before you start on your new venture. I spoke with Simon a few months after trying to go it alone, i was confused and everywhere i turned all i could see was conflicting info. After contacting 'Kickstart Coffee things became much clearer and we set about creating a pathway forward.

Bay 21 - "Absolutely Life Changing,.. Just do it! Best decision we ever made."

“An opportunity which seemed too good to refuse was presented to me. Opportunity was knocking, change was looming and doors were opening. I have now embraced the challenge and have started with their amazing support and encouragement.. Not exagerating, just stating the truth. Thank-you!.”

- Steve Vansmalen

“David Ramson engaged Kickstart Coffee at the 11th hour. He nearly had been coerced into signing a franchise agreement. Not only did we save him 100's of thousands in franchise fees and other unnecessary costs but we set him up in a business of which he has 100% ownership.
