New franchise making a splash
Scott Dempster always knew that Delicia Acai and Protein Bar would be a franchise. He set it up from the get go to be a nation wide family loving franchise chain.
“I tried and tested everything. From the beginning I put measures in place to make sure that this would be a franchise,” he said.
18 months after launching his first cafe, his dream has come true and three stores are already running under a franchise model in Adelaide. He is in discussions currently with a potential franchisee in Perth.
Dempster’s hope is to have 50 locations Australia wide and encourages moms and dads who want a little change to come and join his brand.
“We are a very very affordable franchise and we want those down to earth, family oriented people to come and join this growing brand,” he says.
The business owner is passionate about health and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and discovered acai in 2011 on a trip to Brazil. He even named the café Delicia which is Brazilian for delicious.
Dempster and his wife Katie sold their house in order to get the business started. This was a risk that has certainly paid off.
The husband and wife team have worked “day and night” to make sure all processes are in place for a successful and easy to operate franchise.
