Israeli fixed-price coffee chain Cofix will seek to almost double its footprint in Poland next year by opening at least 18 new stores.
Cofix opened its first outlet in Poland in June 2020 and currently operates 19 stores across Warsaw, Lublin, Katowice, Białystok and Kraków, where it launched in November 2023.
The coffee chain plans to open a second outlet in Kraków and two further sites in Warsaw before the end of the year and is also negotiating terms for a first outlet in Opole. Cofix primarily opens company-operated stores in Warsaw and franchises its sites outside of the capital.
Of Cofix’s 400 stores globally, 90% are currently run by franchise partners.
The value-focused coffee chain operates across Israel, Poland, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Spain. In August 2023 Cofix Global’s Chief Operating Officer Shaun Lewis told World Coffee Portal that the brand will enter its seventh market – Armenia – before the end of the year.
World Coffee Portal research forecasts the 1,400-store Polish branded coffee shop market will exceed 1,500 outlets by 2028. The market is currently led by McCafé, which has more than 500 outlets, followed by Cukiernia Sowa and Costa Coffee, each of which operate more than 130 stores.
