What’s New

Muffin Break Win THREE Awards at 2022 Excellence in Franchising Night!

At Muffin Break, we love celebrating excellence. It’s how we’ve grown from our first store in 1989 to over 200 stores in Australia and 300+ internationally. Our commitment to freshly-baked muffins and award-winning coffee is legendary.

Luckily, the Franchise Council of Australia (FCA) agrees! The FCA recently held its 2022 Excellence in Franchising Awards and announced its annual Hall of Fame inductee for 2022 as Foodco Group Executive Chairman, Serge Infanti.

Foodco is the franchise group behind Muffin Break. With over three decades of experience in food retail, Foodco provides intensive training and ongoing business support to ensure that Muffin Break continues to be known for quality.

Serge joined Foodco in 1991 and became one of the earliest Franchise Partners, successfully operating two Muffin Break and two Jamaica Blue cafes.

From there he has grown into the most senior position in the company, with his experienced leadership helping to guide Muffin Break, Jamaica Blue and Croc’s Playcentres into the future.

The awards didn’t stop there! Crystal Allen of Muffin Break won Field Manager of the Year, recognised for her endless dedication to helping our franchisees thrive.

Gayle and Des Purdue, owners of Muffin Break in Coolalinga & Gateway Palmerston, were named as the Multi-Unit Franchisee of the Year.

The pair paid tribute to their team, saying that “they are an amazing group of people whose commitment is outstanding.”

The FCA Celebrates Australia’s Top Franchises

These awards have serious weight behind them. The FCA is the peak body for the $172 billion franchise business segment, which includes over 1,300 networks, with 94,000+ individual franchised outlets, employing more than 565,251 people.

Across every sector, franchises create employment and prosperity for Australia. The FCA provides a platform for the industry to influence government policy, communicate with political leaders and key decision makers, plus network with peers.

“The last two years have represented some of the most difficult economic conditions ever experienced by Australian business,” Franchise Council of Australia CEO, Mary Aldred, said. “The resilience, adaptability and determination that has been demonstrated by all finalists and winners is truly outstanding.”

Congratulations to all our winners on receiving awards from such a prestigious organisation!
