Global Success Story Since 1979

Gloria Jean’s Coffees was founded by Gloria Jean Kvetko in 1979 in Chicago (USA) and opened its 1st Australian outlet in 1996. Fast forward to 2022, Gloria Jean’s Coffees is now a global success story, serving over 18.4 million coffees per year in more than 686 coffee houses across over 40 territories worldwide.

Much has changed with the business over the last 43 years except for one thing – the commitment to excellent coffee and genuine old school service. “Gloria Jean’s Coffees is a world-renowned Top 10 International Coffee Chain and we are proud to be representing it in Singapore.” said Kevin Khoo, CEO of Kopi Ventures Pte Ltd (Master Franchise Partner, Gloria Jean’s Coffees).

A Story That Spans Over Four Decades, And Counting

Gloria Jean’s Coffees has a story that stretches back over four decades, when they kickstarted a coffee revolution from their humble Australian roots, that continues to stretch around the globe. Things change, people change, but one thing remains constant: The commitment to collaborating with the finest growers, then roasting in-house to provide the best bean-to-cup experience on the planet. You only get one chance to make a great first impression, so that’s why they have invested in the simple, yet crucial art of outstanding service.

A smile doesn’t cost anybody anything. Which is precisely what your daily ritual requires before anything else: Superb coffee and excellent service. The good old days are right now. Their rich heritage was built on hard-working Australian ethos that will be replicated wherever you see a Gloria Jean’s Coffees sign. As pioneers in coffee culture, they see it as their duty to continue experimenting and innovating with blends while delivering an uncompromising customer experience. This is the Good Cup.
