Our Story

1998 FIRST STORE

Our First store in Elizabeth Street Melbourne was the result of two friends who shared a passion for coffee discovering that Australian's were missing out on the high quality, and convenient coffee that they had experienced while travelling overseas.

Hudsons Coffee fast became the leading Australian coffee company. A nationally recognised brand with a heart of a local, and the convenience of a chain, with a consistency of product and service.

2000 FIRST AIRPORT STORE

The huge success of the expansion of the brand in Melbourne, saw an approach by Melbourne Airport to deliver the best of Melbourne Coffee to their travelling passengers. Now the Hudsons Coffee brand is the leading coffee chain in all major airports in Australia, and now in Changi Airport, Singapore and Auckland Airport, New Zealand.

2003 FIRST FRANCHISEE

Our expansion into South Australia saw us partner with our first franchisee. We now have more than 70 partners with our Hudsons Coffee family continually growing.

2009 EMIRATES LEISURE RETAIL (AUS) ACQUISITION

Our acquisition by the high-profi le Emirates Group, has accelerated our growth. With our 100 Hudsons Coffee Stores now located in every state and territory of Australia, internationally at Singapore's Changi Airport and most recently New Zealand's Auckland Airport, we are now perfectly positioned for the exciting new phase of taking Hudsons Coffee to the world.
