The Coffee Emporium started back in 1991, where it stood as a single café located in Bankstown, Sydney. When coffee aficionado and The Coffee Emporium founder, John Ayoub, stumbled across the venue, he was instantly captivated and went on to acquire the coffee house in 2002.

The vision of The Coffee Emporium vastly expanded when John’s cousin Sam Ayoub signed on to form a powerful partnership in 2005, helping turn The Coffee Emporium into the powerhouse and iconic coffee brand it is today. In 2006, The Coffee Emporium started franchising with the opening of the Blacktown coffee house. In 2012 founders, John and Sam Ayoub, celebrated the opening of the 20th store and a legacy was born.
