The Groove Train’s venture into the Northern Territory demonstrates the continued growth of the dynamic franchise which is set for more expansion this year.  

Franchisees, David Robinson and Sohil Aghariya, expressed their eagerness at launching in Darwin’s Casuarina Square, the first for the brand in the state.

“This is the restaurant precinct (The Quarter) that the northern suburbs desperately needed. The family and kids area was really exciting to us as we both have young families,” said Robinson.

“I wanted to open a cafŽ in Darwin with the best coffee I could source, from the world’s best coffee region, Melbourne. The cooking method is so different to the standard franchise and is far more exciting to me, not to mention that we now get to work alongside chefs with some serious credentials,” he added.

The menu features the franchise’s renowned wood fired pizzas along with a varied selection of European and Asian inspired recipes – a key difference to the eastern states though, is Casuarina’s trademark Barramundi dish.

The Groove Train now has 23 locations throughout Australia with Western Australia to receive their first location later this year.
