Live your


So, it seems you are on the hunt for a path to be your own boss, build a future for your family and live your hospitality dream. You can do this by opening your own Degani café. Imagine running your own business in an industry that continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down.

We are known for our award winning coffee and versatile menus and serve with joy, which creates a positive experience for our customers. The Degani family opened a little bakery cafe in Clifton Hill in 1999, with fresh pastries, delicious breakfasts and unique smooth coffee, that saw the locals queueing each morning. At Degani, the only thing we love more than great coffee and food is seeing our customers enjoy it with their friends and family! No matter what day or time you visit, our menu is prepared with love. And you can taste the care taken in our coffee as we select only 100% AA certified Arabica beans, roasted in Melbourne and sourced from the world’s best growing regions. Degani quickly became a leader in Melbourne’s burgeoning cafe market, before strong interest from across the country led to national expansion. We now have grown to over 60 successful cafes across Australia and we’d love you to be a part of the team!



We have two key goals,

Help our franchisees run successful businesses
and make our customers happy. 

And really, the two are synonymous and dependant upon each other. We are passionate about working with good people to create something special.

We are Australian owned and operated, have flexible entry costs, proven operating systems and we support you the whole way with training & marketing. Degani is an affordable business opportunity and we are always right beside you.

Now let's show you the powerful difference that will make your business unique and successful...



You can create your own menu unique to you, incorporate your heritage, personality and local trends. We work together to create that special menu that will meet the needs of your demographic and amplify your profitability. We only use the freshest of food from trusted suppliers which takes out the guess work and hassle and you can be sure you are getting the best cost of goods with the power of group purchasing.



We do bespoke store design that is welcoming, on trend and attractive. Each new store is architecturally designed to suit the space and your style. Together we take into careful consideration the work flow and ergonomics for your staff to maximise efficiency. Our cafés are designed to be unique and with 20 years of experience we help maximize the floor space for optimal seating numbers.



Here, you’re in business ‘for yourself’ but not ‘by yourself’. We are with you the whole way. Your support crew are experts in the hospitality industry. As a franchisee you have the advantage of sidestepping the pitfalls entrepreneurs usually hit when starting a business. We have proven systems, we invest in you and your training from day one. The Degani team are always available to help with staff, supplies or marketing, whatever it is that you need so you can just get on with making the 'dough'.



We operate as a family, we are supportive and positive and our franchisees are too. Many of our cafés are run by families, they support their staff, get involved in their community and love to connect with their customers. For our customers we want our café's to be their local, the place they go weekly with the family, daily for their coffee fix. They come because they love the coffee, the food and the service. They feel at home with us.
