My Coffee

Posted Wednesday, 02 March 2022

For over six years My Coffee has been advocating for the coffee culture in Lagos, and they have made huge strides, which is no small feat. Their name is deceiving. Although they serve an expansive variety of coffee and specialty coffees, they also have their own in-house bakery and in some locations, a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. My Coffee has spent the last six years not only introducing the coffee culture, but adapting their model to that of the local market. Having started with a variety of baked goods, sandwiches and salads, typical of a cafe menu, over time they have expanded their menu by introducing Nigerian dishes alongside more hearty continental dishes. Their most popular duo is an unlikely pairing of their Nigerian pepper soup and cappuccino. They are officially ‘glocalised’. 

They have seven locations in Lagos, from large coffee houses with full menus and seating spaces to smaller to-go kiosks where you can grab a coffee and pastry to go. Their larger sit down locations include My Coffee in Wings, their newer spot on Sanusi Fafunwa and their joint ventures with Green House in Ikoyi and B2D at 1004 in Victoria Island. Their central kitchen is responsible for their mouthwatering baked goods, from croissants and bagels to muffins and cakes, all made fresh daily in-house and delivered to all their locations.

But the brand, My Coffee, is more than just a successful coffee shop chain in Nigeria. Their business model naturally diversified as offshoots of their retail business. They have introduced the franchise model with their first franchisee in Abuja. The My Coffee franchisee model is set up perfectly for coffee enthusiasts to simply plug and play. They help franchisees to fully set-up to operate their own My Coffee, giving entrepreneurs a successful start on their coffee journey. Their years of experience in retail have also made them experts in this niche, yet growing sector. In addition to their franchise support, they also offer barista training as part of their services for any cafe or restaurant. And, of course, their own need for coffee machines meant they could also help others with theirs. They are the distributors for the Italian brand, Simonelli, offering a range of commercial grade coffee machines and coffee tools. 

From retail and franchising to distribution and training, their brand name gives you only a glimpse into what these coffee queens can do. Just as a cappuccino has layers, so does My Coffee.
