United Blends – the Many Faces of Zarraffa’s
Throughout the month of January, we will be showcasing some of our talented team members from around the country!
Australian-owned and operated, for the past two decades Zarraffa’s has grown as a family of businesses and here are just a few of our familiar faces to tell you their story, in their own words!
Bec Bee, Franchisee
Zarraffa’s Coffee Hervey Bay, QLD
What did you do before you joined Zarraffa’s?
I worked for 23 years with the Gold Coast City Council.
Number of years with Zarraffa’s?
Since the store opened in late 2009.
When was the store established?
Nine years ago.
What is your favourite Zarraffa’s beverage?
I love our Vanilla Caffe Lattes, Crème White Chocolade Fusions and the Mocha Fusions.
Tell us more about working in your local community:
I love the coffee, the culture, and the passion of Zarraffa’s.
We really believe in giving back to our Hervey Bay community. Our store supports a local rehab organisation with monthly gift cards, and we host a ‘Coffee with a Cop’ program, where customers can get to know their local police officers and ask questions or find out more about policing in the area.
We recently worked with the local police for their Christmas Road Safety initiative by providing complimentary coffees to reward sober drivers via breathalyser stations. We also support our local Animal Rescue group and recently our staff donated 2 months’ worth of tips to the Farmers Rural Aid charity!
One of my favourite moments was when some of our regular customers got married and then had to stop by the store for their Zarraffa’s fix before the reception!
We also had a regular older customer whose last wish was to come and have a coffee in store and see our team before he passed, so that was pretty special for all of us too.
