Bean Good Coffee Company
A social enterprise Cafe
A social enterprise cafe run by volunteers and paid staff, we donate 50% of our profits to charity, provide work placement opportunities and training to the marginalised and long term unemployed.
Supported by our corporate partners and investors we have created business model to generates revenue to fund charitable programs, initiatives and administration costs for the not-for-profit sector.
The purpose of the business is to provide a speciality coffee experience in Melbourne with a view to expanding the business aggressively and channelling the profits into supplementing The Big Umbrella’s (TBU) and other not-for-profits initiatives.
We are creating here a repeatable franchising model, which in turn seed funds the Bean Good Coffee Company and other not-for-profits and community based initiatives using the support of our corporate community investors. Our aim is to provide the much needed annual income to pay for administrational costs, staff and resources needed to run the charities programs from year to year. Providing this support largely eliminates the growing concern and constraint queries every charity faces. It reassures the general public in donating their hard earned dollars when they ask, “Where does my money go? How much do you use for admin and staff?” Supported not-for-profits no longer need to pay staff and administration costs from donated dollars, 100% of all money raised by NFP now, can be used 100% directly for the cause!
