Gold Coast Treasure: Kenton Campbell

Kenton Campbell is the Gold Coast’s coffee king!

Back in 1996 he used a $9000 personal loan to open a roasting house on the backstreets of Southport  – and Zarraffa’s Coffee was born.

Now, 20 years later, Kenton has managed to grow the privately-owned company into a franchise operation that includes more than 76 stores across Queensland, northern NSW and WA.

In an exclusive chat with myGC, Kenton reveals what drove him to start Zarraffa’s Coffee, his tools for success, and what his plans are for the future. Watch below:
